But as the railbirds say, “That’s why we have horse races.” Paradise, recently returned from the ultra-wired Sundance Film Festival, likes this winning Oscar lineup: “My thoughts are that Glenn Close (‘The Wife’) and Christian Bale (‘Vice’) will win Best Actor Oscars. Spike Lee for Director, and Best Picture [is] very close. ‘Green Book’ is a dark horse. I’m picking ‘Roma’ for Best Foreign Language Film and ‘RBG’ for Documentary,” he said, noting that Peter Farrelly of “Green Door” will appear sometime soon at the Film Center to discuss his phenomenal year in moviemaking.

Round 2 in the well-earned cinematic celebration of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, “On the Basis of Sex,” is coming to the M.V. Film Center. Mimi Lederer, known primarily for her TV work, directs, and Ginsburg’s nephew, Daniel Stiepleman, wrote the screenplay. The documentary, “RBG,” played at the Film Center last year, the 25th anniversary year of Ginsburg’s appointment to the Supreme Court.
