Cabaret (1972)

Liza Minnelli asks to be loved all ways — as a sex bomb, as an awkward adolescent, and as a Carnegie Hall entertainer — and it's asking a lot. The time and setting of 1932 Germany carry an inherent moodiness, and it was a good idea to use the painted ... (PG)

Cabeza de Vaca (1991)

Mexican-made historical re-enactment of the adventures of a shipwrecked conquistador among American Indians in the 16th Century, his separation from his fellow Spaniards, his apprenticeship to a native medicine man, his independent career as an itinerant miracle worker. The account of any such conversion and assimilation is bound to be ... (R)

Cabin Boy (1994)

Takeoff on Captains Courageous, in which a full-grown upper-class twit (Chris Elliott) gets marooned on a fishing boat with a crew of rummy old salts. From there, it takes off into Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Mysterious Island territory: a nautical zone called Hell's Bucket, with its shark-man (Russ Tamblyn), ... (PG-13)

Cabin Fever (2016)

Five friends, in one log house, surrounded by numerous flesh-eating neighbors. Sound familiar? It should, seeing how only fourteen years separate this from its predecessor. Not since Gus Van Sant plunged a knife in Psycho have we witnessed such an unnecessary remake. Had Quentin Tarantino upped the number of “Hatefuls” ... (NR)

The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

Terrorized teens in a desolate location become unwitting participants in a faith-based reality TV show. For 40 minutes we’re treated to an encyclopedic vivisection of everything wrong with contemporary horror movies. The overly clever script by Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard eventually falls victim to its own satirization, but ... (R)

The Cable Guy (1996)

Deprived of parenting as a lad, reared by television ("I learned the facts of life from watching The Facts of Life!"), he's now a lisping cable installer with a flypaper personality: he wants to be best friends with his new customer. Despite some side trips -- Court TV, "theme" restaurants, ... (PG-13)

Caché (2005)

Well-chilled French thriller comparable in degrees centigrade to Time Out, With a Friend Like Harry, Merci pour le Chocolat, Red Lights, et al. An anonymous videocassette in a plastic bag is left without explanation at the doorstep of the civilized host of a book-chat TV show: a two-hour static surveillance ... (R)

Caddyshack (1980)

Comedy out of the better-slob-than-snob school. But then, it hasn't much to be snobbish about. Its main boasting point is in finally giving Rodney Dangerfield a film role large enough to move around in: a nouveau-riche vulgarian who invades the inner sanctum of an exclusive country club. Bill Murray has ... (R)

Cadillac Man (1990)

Robin Williams slightly (and strangely) constrained as a car salesman and womanizer: we don't see much of his technique in either pursuit, though we get a definite whiff of squalidness. Midway through, a Dog Day Afternoon-type "hostage situation" puts an end to all that, and also to all interest. A ... (R)

Cadillac Records (2008)

The emergence of rock-and-roll, as seen from the catbird seat of Chess Records in Chicago: Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, Chuck Berry, Etta James, et al. The golden music, the vintage cars, the period hairdos retain their glamour; the backstage clichés are just old. Adrien Brody, as producer Leonard ... (R)

Caesar Must Die (Cesare deve morire) (2012)

So what would happen if you staged Julius Caesar in a modern-day Roman prison? These guys found out. (NR)

None stars

Café Society (2016)

Woody Allen gives a tour of Woody Allenland, complete with gentle and largely unnecessary narration. Unnecessary for the movie, that is. But it’s just possible that this is something else: a primer of sorts, a re-introduction of the old guy’s schtick to a generation that’s only ever read about him ... (PG-13)

Caged No More (2016)

A woman sets out to rescue her goddaughters from their wicked father, who intends to sell them into sexual slavery in order to cover his drug debts. Along the way, she gets help from a rich man, a Special Forces soldier, and quite possibly, God. (PG-13)

None stars

Cairo Time (2010)

First time in the Middle East for a contented American working wife, now facing Empty Nest Syndrome with two children flown, planning to meet up with her husband in Cairo to see the pyramids together. The husband, a United Nations emissary overseeing a refugee camp in Gaza, is detained incommunicado ... (PG)

Cake (2014)

The Academy has a long history of rewarding fetching troupers who consent to part from makeup and shampoo long enough to flagrantly play against type. Jennifer Aniston finds out the hard way that the road to Oscar is anything but a cakewalk. Unlike Charlize Theron, who quite literally transformed into ... (R)
