David Wallechinsky: Academy Awards 2013: Foreign Language Films
Huffington Post - about 4 years
This year a record 71 countries submitted entries in the Best Foreign Language Film category. I managed to see 61 of these films. Although there were many entertaining movies, the overall mood was bleak. As one of my viewing companions put it, it's as if the stories were conceived during the financial crisis of 2008, written in 2009, funded in 2010, produced in 2011 and released in 2012. Here are my comments on the five nominees, as well some non-nominees that I consider noteworthy. Amour (Austria) After the initial screenings of the 71 foreign language films, it seemed like the battle for the Oscar would be between Amour and the popular French entry, The Intouchables.

The county's Finance Agency looked into expenses placed on procurement cards, or P-Cards, by Supervisors Mike Wasserman, David Cortese, Ken Yeager and Liz Kniss from 2011 to 2012 as directed by the supervisors in October after an audit of Shirakawa's P-Card charges. The supervisors requested audits of P-Card spending by all county elected officials and board appointees after Shirakawa's records revealed he improperly charged nearly $13,000 in charity donations and personal expenses from January 2009 to September 2012, according to the agency. The audit of Shirakawa's P-Card use found he spent $36,837 over the 45-month period, with $14,293 for travel, $10,354 for local business meals, $5,140 listed as ...
