Opening This Week

BELLA—One frantic morning at an upscale Manhattan Mexican restaurant, Nina is fired for being late one too many times. Her pregnancy test has just communicated crisis, but head chef José, a warm hearted dreamboat looking for some cosmic reparations for a past transgression, offers a solution to her dilemma. Eduardo Verástegui and Tammy Blanchard make an emotional connection as the couple, although the plot is a tad soapy, with a single day bringing the couple's separate sagas of repressed grief bubbling to the surface. Still, Bella contains three intrinsically appealing cinematic themes: the cooking and eating of food as a sign of affection, a cross-cultural romance (especially welcome as a sign of solidarity with the burgeoning Latino population) and the healing balm of a loving family, all of which smooth over the "well-made play" clichés. While not particularly pulse-pounding, it will bring a tear to the eye of anyone who has loved a child. Rated PG-13. —LB

BEOWULF—This CGI version of the English 101 mainstay offers a Faustian update on the classic tale of a warrior (Ray Winstone) battling the monster Grendel (Crispin Glover at his most manic) and his mother (interpreted as a naked, 3-D Angelina Jolie). Director Robert Zemeckis has improved the quality of his motion-capture filmmaking since the creepiness of The Polar Express, but the computerized actors still suffer from Botoxed foreheads and unmoving eyebrows. The violence and sexuality makes this inappropriate for kids, and yet it doesn't go far enough to be entertaining for adults. There's a great mature-oriented animated film out there, but this isn't it. Rated PG-13. —ZS

LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA—Gabriel Garcia Marquez wrote the novel about love and devotion through a lifetime that inspired this film, and neither Antonio Banderas nor Salma Hayek is in it. These facts alone are cause for hope. Rated R.

MR. MAGORIUM'S WONDER EMPORIUM—Natalie Portman stars as a manager of a fabulous toy store, and Dustin Hoffman is the 243-year-old eccentric owner of the establishment. The story is rife with characters with names like Jason, Who's a little too curious and Cassie, the girl chased by a goose, leading us to think (no doubt intended) thoughts of Roald Dahl and Willy Wonka. Rated G.

Current Releases

30 DAYS OF NIGHT—Perhaps the best thing going for director David Slade's adaptation of Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith's creepy comic series is its vampires: a rag-tag team of dark-eyed, saw-toothed flesh fiends who scream with otherworldly falsettos and circle their prey before picking at them with fingernails and teeth. Rated R. —KJ

AMERICAN GANGSTER—With Denzel Washington playing an N.C.-born Harlem drug kingpin of the late '60s/early '70s, and Russell Crowe as the cop chasing him, Ridley Scott wastes loads of star power and his own technical prowess on a tale that plays like a tired mish-mash of much better movies, from The Godfather and Scarface to Superfly. Rated R. —GC

BEE MOVIE—Jerry Seinfeld may headline this honey-basted animated film, but audiences would have benefited from more than the paltry five minutes of screen time dedicated to Chris Rock's acerbic wit. The setting is an entertaining and somewhat educational rendering of a bee's life through the eyes of young Barry B. Benson (Seinfeld), who longs for a life beyond his hive-bound, work-a-bee subsistence. Rated PG. —NM

DAN IN REAL LIFE—Hollywood loves to neuter its comedians for the sake of playing artsy over archetype, and with Steve Carell, it started either with Little Miss Sunshine or when they marketed Evan Almighty to evangelical groups. His slow ascent over the shark tank continues with this cloying, derivative dramedy in which he plays Dan, a writer and widower rearing three young daughters. Together they travel to his extended family's annual fall get-together in Rhode Island for a flannel-clad weekend of word games, living room talent shows and pancake breakfasts. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE DARJEELING LIMITED—This film might well be viewed as the anchor leg to Wes Anderson's unofficial Daddy trilogy, steeped in the paradox that while family is ostensibly the strongest of bonds, it is the one human relationship not formed by free association or commonality of personality. This is Anderson's most accessible, poetic and poignant to date. Rated R. —NM

FRED CLAUS—The Halloween candy is starting to disappear, so it must be time for Christmas movies. In this one, Santa invites his ne'er do-well brother to work in his toy shop. What follows proposes to be funny and heartwarming. Still, there's an impressive array of talent here that's generally associated with more ambitious fare: Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Rachel Weisz, Kevin Spacey and director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers). Rated PG.

GONE BABY GONE—For his directorial debut, Ben Affleck and first-time screenwriter Aaron Stockard co-adapt author Dennis Lehane's novel about the search for a kidnapped four-year-old girl living in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood. Tension flows from the combustible ethnic, political, and socio-economic forces at work, from the lumpen local hoi polloi to the seemly underbelly of the Bostonian drug trade to the simultaneous dedication and duplicity of the police. The finished product is taut, thought-provoking, and one of this year's best. Rated R. —NM

INTO THE WILD—Sean Penn delivers the finest film of his directorial career in telling the fascinating true story of Chris McCandless, a young man who, after graduating college in 1990, spends two years bumming around America before disappearing into the Alaskan wilderness. Evoking everything from The Odyssey to Easy Rider, this tale of a self-imposed initiatory ordeal will split viewers according to whether the main character is found sympathetic or not. But it asks all the right questions, and Penn's energetic direction is constantly inventive. Emile Hirsch gives a brave, ambitious performance as Chris. Rated R. —GC

LARS AND THE REAL GIRL— Ryan Gosling is a long way from his romantic turn in The Notebook as Lars, a painfully repressed young man who orders a "RealDoll" off the Internet and talks to it as though she's real, forcing his small town to cater to his delusion. The film avoids all sexual angles, instead veering between a sitcom update of Harvey and a darker character study of Lars' pain. It could be this fall's Little Miss Sunshine—take that as you will. Rated PG-13. —ZS

LIONS FOR LAMBS—Amid the torrent of war-on-terror fare currently coming out of Hollywood, this is the singularly sanctimonious, heavy-handed and counterproductive of the lot. The three-act screenplay rotates randomly from the congressional office of conservative Sen. Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise) to that of university professor Stephen Malley (director Robert Redford) to an Afghan mountaintop where two Army Rangers (Michael Pena and Derek Luke) are pinned down by approaching Taliban rebels. The sad irony of this "I-told-you-so" talkathon, in which Hollywood lefties controlled the plot and every word of dialogue, is that it unintentionally confirms the reasons why the Democratic Party keep seeing presidential elections slip from their grasp. Rated R. —NM

LUST, CAUTION—Ang Lee returns to his art house roots with this political and erotic thriller set in the Japanese-occupied China of the early 1940s. A group of callow theater students in Shanghai form a resistance cell, move to Hong Kong and become political assassins. The target is Mr. Yee (Tony Leung), a ruthless police investigator who is now part of the Japanese-imposed security apparatus. In the first of this film's handful of worthwhile ideas, it is the shyest, meekest, most innocent member of this clique, the slight but pretty Wong Chia Chi (newcomer Tang Mei) who turns out to possess the improvisational skills and sangfroid necessary to become an effective mole. But the film's Graham Greene-style world-weariness gives way to a fatal preoccupation with the sexual obsession between Yee and Wong. Rated NC-17. —DF

MARTIAN CHILD—With its Chicken Soup for the Parent's Soul mentality, there's little that can save this quirky relationship tearjerker from turning into Saturday afternoon filler on Lifetime. Rated PG. —KJ

MICHAEL CLAYTON—Playing a bottom-drawer Manhattan lawyer sucked into a web of corporate corruption, George Clooney gives a dead-on performance that may well be what gets this riveting, downbeat thriller to the Oscars. Yet the film's most striking virtue is Tony Gilroy's inventive script, which withholds just enough information to leave the viewer both off-center and thoroughly absorbed. Rated R. —GC

OM SHANTI OM—The King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, earns his moniker because he can pack a theater with gleeful patrons like nobody else can. Paired with choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, who harbors a mad movie love both for the conventions of Hindi cinema and for her charismatic leading man, Om Shanti Om delivers the glitter and glamour, the comedy and thrills, religion and the supernatural, mother love, high fashion and eye-popping production numbers in proper masala fashion. Not rated. —LB

P2—Where has Wes Bentley been since American Beauty? Find out in this Alexandre Aja-co-scripted horror flick. Rated R.

SAAWARIYA (BELOVED)Devdas director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's überswoony ode to first love unfolds on an elaborately detailed set meant to evoke Venice on the Ganges. He got a blank check (and a hands off) from Sony/Columbia, who wants a chunk of the revenue Indian movie goers reserve for their home grown cinema. Bhansali's banking on two newcomers, both offspring of Bollywood biggies, to make Sony's dream come true. Not rated. —LB

SAW IVWhat began as a hyper-stylized torture film with a psycho-geek charisma brought about by Jigsaw, its illogical but pious moral engineer/ serial killer, has now been reduced to a sticky melodrama that spurts scenes of torture and mutilation like a MTV-metal video shocks and growls. Rated R. —KJ

TYLER PERRY'S WHY DID I GET MARRIED?—Much of what Tyler Perry deems wrong with marriage has to do with powerful women who speak their minds and clock in too many hours in the office—and never mind the men who cheat on their women or demand an open and available womb. Rated PG-13. —KJ


Due to the possibility of last-minute scheduling changes, we recommend calling ahead to theaters to confirm final showtimes.
