Habana Eva (2011)

Eva is a dreamer in a world of assimilated perspectives. Her workday consists of sewing in a factory, but her ambition is to become a famous fashion designer. Enter Jorge, a well-to-do charmer whose world-weary aesthetic provides Eva with just the escape she needs. Unfortunately, the performances do not live ... (NR)

La Habitación (Tales of Mexico) (2016)

The people who occupy a single bedroom at various key moments in Mexican history form the basis of this ambitious but gimmicky omnibus picture. According to Variety, the creative force behind this one appears to be producer Edher Campos, who asked screenwriter Maria Diego Hernandez to create eight stories for ... (NR)

Hackers (1995)

Computer-nerd wet dream of averting global disaster and foiling the corporate bad guys (most particularly the hackers' adult counterpart, the villainously bearded Fisher Stevens) during Senior Year in high school. And, for a lucky two, finding a soul mate in the bargain, namely (or nicknamely) Crash Override, formerly Zero Cool, ... (PG-13)

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

Director Mel Gibson’s first film since 2006’s Apocalypto is visceral proof that the years haven’t done much to change him, at least as a filmmaker. He still loves outliers isolated by their beliefs, in this case a real-life Seventh-Day Adventist named Desmond Doss who wants to serve his country but ... (R)

Haider (2014)

A Hindi version of Hamlet, set in modern times. (NR)

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

Remember movies? The Coen brothers do. Westerns, romances, musicals, dance extravaganzas — the works. (All of which are on gorgeous, indulgent display here.) Millions of people used to look to them for — in the words of Capitol Pictures’ Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) — “information, uplift, and yes, ... (PG-13)

Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll (1987)

Chuck Berry, celebrating his sixtieth birthday, a lot for a rock-and-roller, is in good form, and in good company, and even in good photography, but not in especially good cinema: the conventional mix of concert and interview, plus a couple of real sparks in rehearsal. The place -- the Fox ... (PG)

Hail Mary (1985)

There can have been no false sincerity in Godard's proffered thank-you to the Holy Father for his personal interest in (i.e., official denunciation of) this film: just the thing to throw into reverse the director's inexorable drift from his pivotal and influential position in the Sixties to an increasingly marginal ...

Hail Satan? (2019)

The question mark in the title of Penny Lane’s documentary on The Satanic Temple is integral to the story she’s telling. Like Satan himself — the original disrupter in the Garden of Eden, the rebel and accuser who bedevils the righteous — Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves is a troll. His ... (R)

Hail the Conquering Hero (1944)

It is perhaps advisable to recall, every few minutes, that when this first hit the nation's movie screens there was a war going on. Otherwise, viewed a safe distance from the general spirit of pulling-together, it may not be wholly clear why this Preston Sturges service comedy earned such hurrahs ... (NR)

The Hairdresser's Husband (1991)

Erotic male fantasizing -- and exceptionally lazy fantasizing at that -- about the twelve-year-old boy who, with a busty redhead as his paragon, makes up his mind he's going to marry a hairdresser, and in late middle age does just that. (Does, as far as we can tell, virtually nothing ... (R)
