Or: I Was a Teenage Othello. The tragic hero is now named Odin (Mekhi Phifer), a basketball phenom at an otherwise white prep school in Charleston; his steady girlfriend, daughter of the dean, is called Desi (Julia Stiles, in her third Shakespearean update, after Ten Things I Hate about You ...

A President who shall remain nameless in a country that, oddly enough, resembles our own asks his fellow Americans to endorse a loyalty oath. The deadline to sign is Black Friday (get it?), leaving a biracial couple and their family to fight about it over Thanksgiving dinner. Chris (writer-director-star Ike ...

An anti-Taken, though definitely not a Given. Rather, Baltasar Kormákur directs, co-writes, and stars as a surgeon (you know, a person who takes the Hippocratic Oath and vows not to play at God) who sets out to disentangle his beloved daughter (from his previous, failed marriage) from her punky-thuggy-druggy boyfriend. ...

Juan Manuel Bernal plays a lightly fictionalized version of disgraced Catholic priest and founder of the Legionaries of Christ Marcial Maciel, who was eventually ordered to "retire to a life of prayer and penance" after years of outrageous sexual misconduct. Here, he is the head of a seminary, where pious ...

Vanessa Gould’s documentary look at the obituary department of the New York Times in action is as deceptive in tone as it is perceptive in vision. A strange air of calm rumination pervades the account, even as we watch a group of consummate professionals go through their daily, panic-inducing routine ...

A pampered American couple with a serious cash-flow problem consider liquidating their best asset: a salt-shaker-sized Henry Moore bronze. But first it gets stolen from their London hotel room by a deaf chambermaid who covets it purely for aesthetics: a touch of schmaltz in a frostily "sophisticated" comedy. There is ...

A funny-how-things-turn-out relationship comedy. The situation is slow to set up -- the pregnant Brooklyn social worker wants to raise her child with her gay-guy roommate rather than her live-apart boyfriend -- and the shortsighted characters are slow to think through the consequences. The natural complications are not, in the ...

A throwback piece of good-looking sci-fi, starting with the gorgeous and haunting image of a shattered moon, its debris stretching out into orbit. Happily, we are spared the resultant catastrophes; the emphasis here is more on Tom Cruise's self-discovery than his badassery, and hardly at all on saving the world. ...

A road comedy, “based upon The Odyssey by Homer,” about three chain-gang fugitives in Depression-era Mississippi. (The title, should you need reminding, comes from Preston Sturges’s Sullivan’s Travels: the proposed title for a “meaningful” film by a refractory Hollywood contract director, whose subsequent quest to get in touch with the ...

Delusional mall cop (a close-cropped, clean-shaven Seth Rogen) with real-cop aspirations comparable to those of the title character of Paul Blart, but with a deeper and wider vein of psychosis: manic highs, sadistic lows. The maker of The Foot Fist Way, Jody Hill, enters the mainstream for the purposes of ...

Sort of an interracial Fatal Attraction, except the attraction is all one way. The hot blond temp — “I think you mean ‘temp-tress’” — sets her cap for the married Executive V.P. the first time they share an elevator. Her great sin is obviousness, his is thus obtuseness, and the ...

Hats off to any film that tries (and succeeds) at presenting challenging, off-putting characters from whose palms I’m reluctantly persuaded to eat. Character identification has never been my celluloid raison d'être, but damn if this movie didn’t get to me in a manner destined to cloud critical thinking. Jenny Slate ...

Short film explores the oceanography of Baja California.

The Winged Migration team, Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, take their clear-eyed cameras out of the air and into the water, carrying on in the wake of another Jacques — Cousteau — to build a big-screen aquarium, phantasmagoric in effect, and maybe sometimes stupefying. A fair amount of fish-eat-fish and ...

Frank Sinatra and a group of Korean war buddies regroup to knock over the five major Las Vegas casinos at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. It’s a chance to ring-a-ding-ding in the New Year in style with the Rat Pack. That's style as in sartorial nuance — ...
