Opening This Week

DUS KAHANIYAAN (TEN STORIES)— Six directors collaborated on this anthology of unrelated tales with an art house vibe. Just a few days work for each of 25 players meant that some heavy hitting character actors, like Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Nana Patekar, Sanjay Dutt and Suniel Shetty could be recruited for this low-profile endeavor. Not rated. —LB

THE GOLDEN COMPASS—This adaptation of Philip Pullman's "anti-Narnia" novel, about a young girl (Dakota Blue Richards) who battles an evil adult conspiracy in an alternate universe, rushes through the book's storyline. Nonetheless, director Chris Weitz delivers many entertaining and exciting moments, with superb performances and excellent effects throughout. The controversial anti-religious aspects of the story are made more subtle without compromising the plot, but the rush to cram the story into a stand-alone film means the book's thrilling and heartbreaking ending is cut for something more upbeat. Rated PG-13. —ZS

SLEUTH—Kenneth Branagh's revision of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 1972 prestige film of the same name features Michael Caine, who co-starred with Laurence Olivier in the original, assuming Olivier's part of millionaire mystery novelist Andrew Wyke, while Jude Law takes on Caine's earlier role of unemployed actor Milo Tindle. While the crux of Anthony Shaffer's original storyline remains intact, Nobel laureate playwright Harold Pinter amps up the verbal jousting, emphasizes Milo's Italian heritage, and fleshes out an incongruous homoerotic subtext. Despite these pointless flourishes, we're stuck with two unlikable, logorrheic characters confined to a hyper-mod milieu that Branagh chills further with dark blue hues, reflective surfaces and other visual gewgaws. Rated R. —NM

Current Releases

AAJA NACHLE (COME AND DANCE)—Madhuri Dixit plays Dia, a New York transplant who heeds a call from her dying guru back home and returns to the small town dance academy that forged her art and joie de vivre. Madhuri was a '90s superstar and this carefully crafted comeback, after she married a doctor, moved to Denver and had two babies, is rapturously anticipated. Not rated. —LB

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

AUGUST RUSH—A newborn is sloughed off at a New York boys' home but grows up believing that through music, he will find his parents who, naturally, are a Julliard-trained cellist (Keri Russell) and a rock star (Jonathan Rhys Meyer). The boy, Evan (Freddie Highmore), is a musical prodigy, too, who can beat out symphonies on a guitar and compose concertos from city noises. His parents follow Evan's musical bread crumb all the way back to the Big Apple and reclaim their misplaced (but never forgotten) child in one magical evening. Rated PG. —KJ

AWAKE—Hayden Christensen plays a man who undergoes major heart surgery but stays fully conscious during the procedure. Don't you hate it when that happens, especially when people are plotting your murder? The film's advertising insists that the unpleasant phenomenon called "anesthetic awareness" occurs once every 700 operations, but there's little doubt that more than one in 700 multiplex attendees will opt for this thriller that also features Jessica Alba, Terrence Howard and Lena Olin. Rated R.

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

BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD—With a gritty urban energy that recalls his own Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico and Prince of the City, veteran director Sidney Lumet traces the dreadful consequences of a misbegotten crime mounted by two suburban New York brothers, world-class screw-ups played by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke. Though Kelly Masterson's ambitious script relies too heavily on fashionable time-chopping, the film is unique among recent crime dramas for achieving the force of tragedy, and for Hoffman's frighteningly powerful performance. Albert Finney and Marisa Tomei co-star. Rated R. —GC

BELLA—Although the plot is a tad soapy, with a single day bringing the central couple's separate sagas of repressed grief bubbling to the surface, 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 and his mother. 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. Rated PG-13. —ZS

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

ENCHANTED—Amy Adams gives an energetic performance as a cartoon fairy tale princess sent to the real world, but the film doesn't really explore the possibilities of its premise. And how many times can James Marsden not get the girl? Rated PG. —ZS

FRED CLAUS—There's an impressive array of talent in this family holiday comedy that's generally associated with more ambitious fare: Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Rachel Weisz, Kevin Spacey and director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers). Rated PG.

HITMAN—The titular video game is adapted into this tepid, uninspired Bourne retread about a ghostly gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 (Timothy Olyphant). Bred at an early age to become an expert assassin, 47 is able to evade legal authorities for years because, as we all know, nothing is as inconspicuous as a six-foot-tall bald guy with a bar code tattooed onto the back of his head. Rated R. —NM

I'M NOT THERE—Todd Haynes' Bob Dylan biopic is a cinematic manifestation of its subject—elusive and surreal, yet strangely calculated and manipulative. Six actors, each cast under a different character pseudonym, portray distinct stages of the singer-songwriter's life, with the two strongest segments featuring Heath Ledger and Cate Blanchett. Still, while the inherent contradictions of Dylan and this vehicle are undoubtedly intentional, at some point they become less provocative than debilitating. Ultimately, Dylan has always been what he claims to be—a master songwriter and storyteller—and what he will not admit to being—a brilliant, strategic self-marketer. 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. 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 Sen. Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise) to that of university professor Stephen Malley (director Robert Redford) to an Afghan mountaintop where two Army Rangers (Michael Peña 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

MAMA'S BOY--In director Tim Hamilton's Hollywood feature debut there's not a lot of funny or finesse. Diane Keaton continues her bad run of mother roles as Jan Mannus, a neurotic whose only son Jeffrey (Jon Heder) refuses to cut the apron strings, preferring to hunker down in his bedroom, gaze at the stars and schedule Friday night Scrabble dates with dear old mom. But when self-help guru Mert Rosenbloom (a chintzy Jeff Daniels) enters the picture and sweeps Jan off her feet, Jeffrey must sabotage their love fest to keep his mother devoted to him alone. Although the Oedipal premise has potential, this film's plot is stretched way too thin to feel remarkable, and Heder's quotidian slapstick falls flat for anyone who's seen his last three films. But the blame shouldn't fall on Heder's shoulders alone: Veterans Keaton and Daniels also offer lackluster performances. Rated PG-13. —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

THE MIST—As an indictment of fractured humanity, writer-director Frank Darabont's third adaptation of a Stephen King story comes about three or four years past the point of relevance. A strange fog envelopes a small Maine village and carries with it strange, bloodthirsty creatures. However, the beseiged villagers' prejudices and distrust devolve into social fragmentation and a slow descent into anarchy, wherein the dangers within the store become almost as perilous as those outside. Rated R. —NM

MR. MAGORIUM'S WONDER EMPORIUM—A film too aware of its role as a cinematic ode to children's literature and whimsical fantasy, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium is one of the weaker offerings of children's film fare for the holiday season. The plot is simplistic: Mr. Magorium (Dustin Hoffman), 243-year-old, bushy-browed toy impresario, decides it's time for his departure from earth (read: death) and must leave his magical shop in the capable, but unwilling hands of Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman), his 22-year-old assistant. Rated G. —KJ

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN—Set in 1980 along the desolate Tex-Mex border, the Coen Brothers' fastidiously faithful adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's literary crime novel follows a world-weary sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones) and a cold-blooded killer (Javier Bardem, in an Oscar-bound knockout turn) as they pursue a hapless cowboy (Josh Brolin) who's stumbled across millions in drug money. Faultlessly mounted, with terrific performances and a formal sheen worthy of Hitchcock, the movie only stumbles in its final section, where McCarthy's apocalyptic allegorizing overwhelms dramatic sense. 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 leading man, Om Shanti Om delivers the glitter and glamour, the comedy and thrills, religion and the supernatural, mother love, fashion and eye-popping production numbers in proper masala fashion. Not rated. —LB

THIS CHRISTMAS—Home for the holidays with the Whitfields, in this writing-and-directing two-fer from the resonantly named Preston Whitmore II. While the plot doesn't promise surprises, the cast includes such live wires as Delroy Lindo, Loretta Devine and Regina King. Rated PG-13.

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
