— There’s a movie opening this weekend about a tiny, sex-obsessed guy who finds unlikely fulfillment with a yuppie matron. No, not that Wayans brothers thing — I’m talking about The Oh in Ohio, with Danny DeVito and Parker Posey. I’ll let you decide which one’s an art film and which isn’t.

— Friday marks the debut of Squirrel Boy, about a lad and his rodent. (Cartoon Network, 7 p.m.)

— Another adorable kid is Yang-Yang, the 8-year-old boy who shows his relatives a side of themselves they’ve never seen by photographing the backs of their heads, in Edward Yang’s rich and rewarding family saga Yi Yi (pictured), out now in a special edition DVD.

— Indie-pop man-child Sufjan Stevens empties out his attic, releasing an Avalanche, while Radiohead’s Thom Yorke unleashes his lonely falsetto all by his lonesome in his solo debut The Eraser.

— Finally, the little man of the week in books is Winkie, the terror-suspect teddy bear of Clifford Chase’s weird, ambitious, exciting new novel.
