None stars

Gabbeh (1996)

Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf forms a perfect cyclical enclosure in which a Persian carpet begets a dreamlike folk tale that begat the carpet in the first place. The animistic world in which this unfolds is a similar enclosure: the sheep and goats of the nomadic clan, the grasslands around them, ... (NR)

Justin Webster's documentary on the the Nobel-winning writer from Colombia. (NR)

None stars

Gabriela (1983)

The hypocrisies of small-town society in mid-Twenties Brazil are exposed with considerable relish. So, too, are the architectural glories of the colonial coastal town of Parati. So, too, with perhaps greatest relish of all, and with certainly greater redundancy, are the anatomical glories of Sonia Braga. This actress, who gives ... (R)

Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (2011)

Serge Gainsbourg, the iconic French singer, grows up (more like down) from a snarky Jewish imp provoking anti-Semites in Occupation Paris and becomes a runty media star (Eric Elmosnino) who beds famous women: Juliette Gréco (Anna Mouglalis), Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta), Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon), ripe to satisfy his scrawny ...

Galaxy Quest (1999)

Amiable spoof of the Star Trek phenomenon (pre-reunion on the big screen), with names changed to protect the guilty. The most scrumptiously swallowable material has to do with the jostling egos of these former TV co-stars, chained to each other and to their old roles as they hobble around the ... (PG)

Gallipoli (1981)

If Breaker Morant is the Australian Paths of Glory, this is its Charge of the Light Brigade. The method of making us feel the loss is the rather uneconomic one of forcing us to become quite close, over a leisurely and meandering hour and a quarter, to two bright lads ... (PG)

Un gallo con muchos huevos (2015)

aka, The Chicken with Big...Eggs. Scrawny rooster must win the big fight to save family farm. Animated, with subtitles. (NR)

None stars

The Gallows (2015)

An amateur cast — under the supervision of equally green storytellers — trapped in an old, dark schoolhouse, are systematically done in by a mysterious, noose-bearing boogeyman. Stop me if you’ve heard this one. Left-to-right the camera goes, what random flashes of sure-fire horror the superabundant swish pans eventually rest ... (NR)

The Gambler (2014)

Mark Wahlberg stars in a remake of the 1974 film starring James Caan. (R)

None stars

The Gambler (1974)

What is shown of the hero's bright side (his career as a professor of English Literature) is pretty skimpy, and silly besides. His nebulous relationship to his mother and grandfather is also skimpy, but mildly intriguing. These things, in any case, are almost completely eclipsed by the mass of material ... (R)

The Game (1997)

Thoroughly dishonest thriller centered around a forty-eighth-birthday gift certificate (brother to brother, Sean Penn to Michael Douglas, dimpled chin to jutted jaw) redeemable at a low-profile outfit called Consumer Recreation Services. The particular service offered therefrom is spelled out cryptically as "a profound life experience" and "an experiential Book-of-the-Month Club," ... (R)
