Film Times & Brief Film Reviews 

Film times are good Thursday, Dec. 20 through Friday, Dec. 28.

Opening This Week

CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR—Topnotch Hollywood moviemaking, Mike Nichols' geopolitical comedy tells the true story of a dissolute Texas congressman who, in the 1980s, takes on as a personal crusade aiding the Afghan resistance to Soviet occupation. Aaron Sorkin's funny, fast-paced script provides a wonderful platform for Tom Hanks as the bibulous Wilson, Julia Roberts as his sultry right-wing benefactress and Philip Seymour Hoffman as his man in the CIA. Important contemporary history is seldom put across as entertainingly as it is here. Rated R. —GC

CONTROL—Anton Corbijn's biopic of Ian Curtis, the great, spasmodic and doomed-to-suicide lead singer of Joy Division offers its own antidote to the rise and fall cliches of Ray and Walk the Line: Instead of tracing the arc of a star's ascent and fall, the film instead burrows into the banalities of Curtis' day to day existence. Although this tactic is undertaken partly out of necessity—Curtis died at 23, on the eve of his band's first U.S. tour and after only three years of recording music—the end result is an exquisite portrait of a young social worker, married with a child, who just happens to be in a really cool band. Newcomer Sam Riley stars along Samantha Morton: As the young Curtis couple, we're convinced that what brought them together as teenagers, tore them apart as adults. Rated R. —DF

THE KITE RUNNER—Khaled Hosseini's mega-bestseller about friendship, guilt and modern Afghanistan gets a sensitive, skillful screen translation in Marc Forster's handsome drama. Filmed in the Dari dialect, with western China playing Afghanistan, the story moves from a lyrical account of young kite-flying friends Amir and Hassan in Kabul of the mid-'70s to the horrors of the Taliban era two decades later. Though filmed with Hollywood scale and budget, the film stays true to its source, and Forster works wonders with his cast, especially the young actors. Rated PG-13. —GC

MARGOT AT THE WEDDING—Whether patterned after an Eric Rohmer family comic-drama, the manifestation of a Dorothy Parker poem, or Noah Baumbach's equal-time excoriation of his mother following the thrashing he gave his doppelganger father in The Squid and the Whale, the writer-director's latest exercise in familial flagellation is a dreary, indulgent slog through upper-crust bohemia. The eponymous Margot (Nicole Kidman), a writer of some repute, is traveling with her teenage son Claude (Zane Pais) to her family's littoral homestead for her sister Pauline's (Jennifer Jason Leigh) wedding to a hapless lout named Malcolm (Jack Black). Notwithstanding some game performances, what ensues is a inane series of passive-aggressive back-biting and reprisals executed by utterly unlikable people. Rated R. —NM

NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS—It seems that there are 18 pages missing from John Wilkes Booth's diary, thus necessitating this movie. Joining Nicolas Cage in this sequel are the absurdly over-qualified Helen Mirren, Ed Harris, Harvey Keitel and Jon Voight. Rated PG.

P.S I LOVE YOU—Hillary Swank stars as a young widow who discovers her late husband has left her a message with 10 tips for happier living. That bastard. Rated PG-13.

SWEENEY TODD—Tim Burton's hundred-mil appreciation of Stephen's Sondheim's deeply bent operetta has a brilliant cast and ravishing silent film-inspired production design. It also boasts copious bloodletting (full disclosure; I couldn't watch) and a lip-smackingly ghoulish sense of humor. Too Grand Guignol for the average Broadway theater goer, but with way too much singing (there seems to be hardly any spoken dialogue) for the average "R for graphic bloody violence" multiplex-goer, it's a disappointing holiday treat. Rated R. —LB

TAARE ZAMIN PAR (STARS UPON THE EARTH)—Aamir Khan (Lagaan) stars as an imaginative boarding school art teacher who befriends an 8 year old boy struggling with his over-active imagination and his dyslexia. Aamir directs (officially) for the first time, from a screenplay by actor and former teacher Amole Gupte, and Aamir's legendary perfectionism suggests a first class project, even if the premise seems less than stellar. Not rated. —LB

WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY—The always reliable John C. Reilly, always the groomsman, finally gets to headline this biting parody that principally posits itself as a farcical take on the Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line. This portion is funny enough, but the riff really finds its rhythm once its focus shifts toward a broader lampoon of the music industry and American social history, starting with Dewey (Reilly) during his Dylan-esque protest period (filmed in black-and-white as a spoof of Pennebaker's Don't Look Back) and continuing through a trip to India to meditate and drop acid with the Beatles, his Brian Wilson SMiLE period, a '70s TV variety show, and finally watching his old hits sampled by hip-hop artists, which naturally paves the way for the climactic Lifetime Achievement Tribute Performance™. Reilly sings, cracks wish, and does yeoman's work in this spotty, but screamingly funny satire, co-written by Judd Apatow (natch) together with director Jake Kasdan (Orange County). Rated R. —NM

WELCOME—Hong Kong mobsters Nana Patekar, Feroz Khan and Anil Kapoor conspire to marry off their sister (Katrina Kaif) to a respectable husband in this gangster comedy. Groom-to-be Akshay Kumar has always easily blended action (he's an ex-karate instructor) and laughs, and his recent parade of box office gold suggests he can do no wrong. Not rated. —LB


Opening December 25th

ALIEN VS PREDATOR: REQUIEM—We're not sure about the requiem part (Requiem for Really Heavyweights?) but we think we understand what this movie is about, nonetheless. Rated R.

THE GREAT DEBATERS—For his sophomore directing effort, Denzel Washington tracks the triumph of the 1935 all-black debate team from Texas’ Wiley College over Jim Crow-era segregation. This squad of upstarts barnstormed the country, competing against both black and white colleges before facing reigning champion Harvard University (in real-life, it was the University of Southern California). Washington’s unadorned direction lags far behind his usual fine work in front of the camera, here as debate coach, professor and legendary poet Melvin B. Tolson. And, for all its earnestness, the formulaic script demonstrates Wiley conveniently assigned the “correct” side of every debate—it is not hard to sound inspired when you are arguing in favor of welfare, school integration, civil disobedience and economic equality. If only the film had shown as much courage as its real life muses. Rated PG-13. —NM

JUNO—Imbued with a rapid-fire, Gen-Y argot, Diablo Cody's script not only tackles touchy life lessons without sanctimony but also finds hilarity as a so-called "teenage comedy" without the crutch of defiled desserts or an endless string of profane Apatowisms. Of course, it helps when your dialogue is being delivered by Ellen Page, who, at age 20, realizes the potential only hinted at in 2005's Hard Candy. After seducing her nebbish high school class/band-mate Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera), the gravid Juno (Page) must decide the fate of her unborn child. Juno is not strictly a tome against teenage pregnancy, pre-martial sex or abortion. Rather, as the self-styled "smartest person in the room," Juno must come to grips with the film's overarching theme that maturity is not merely a reluctant acceptance of responsibility, but instead the reclassification of cool. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE WATER HORSE: THE LEGEND OF THE DEEP—A boy and his secret monster: In this Scottish E.T., lonely young Angus (Alex Etil from Millions) finds an egg in the nearby loch, which hatches to reveal an absolutely adorable animated reptile. Rated PG.


Current Releases

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS—It is difficult to argue that a movie about a trio of singing chipmunks lacks internal logic, but how is it exactly that Alvin, Simon and Theodore are transplanted from their lifelong forest home to the big city already equipped with an awareness of Christmas, the ability to operate sundry household gadgets and a working knowledge of the lyrics to songs by Daniel Powter and Pussycat Dolls? Aside from the fart/poop jokes and general ineptitude, the overarching problem is the storyline casts as its principal villain the very financial profiteering and pop-culture capitulation that this film fully embraces. Rated PG. —NM

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

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

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

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.

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

HITMAN—A video game is adapted into this tepid Bourne retread about a gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 (Timothy Olyphant). Bred at an early age to become an assassin, 47 is able to evade 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 AM LEGEND—Will Smith does solid work in this polished, tense, big-budget remake of the '70s Charlton Heston-starrer The Omega Man, about a man left alone in a city—except for hordes of night-feeding zombies—after a global plague. Although anticipated by 28 Days Later and Vanilla Sky, the views of a depopulated Manhattan are spectacular and suitably eerie. While Smith has few human costars, he gets nice support from a German shepherd. Directed by Francis Lawrence. Rated PG-13. —GC

I'M NOT THERE—Todd Haynes' Bob Dylan biopic is a cinematic manifestation of its subject—elusive and surreal, yet strangely calculated and manipulative. 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

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

THE PERFECT HOLIDAY—A holiday film touted as the "first African-American ensemble this Christmas" (a hair-splitting claim that requires us to consider last month's This Christmas a Thanksgiving movie), this flick features Nancy (Gabrielle Union), a lonely divorcée with three cute kids and all the bling her estranged ex-hubbie, rapper J. Jizzy, can throw her way. Her daughter makes a trip to the mall where she implores Santa (Morris Chestnut) to find her Momma a man for Christmas. What follows is a series of events so uninspired and delusional that an old soul like Father Christmas couldn't offer any redemption. Save your money for eggnog and stay home. Rated PG. —KJ

THIS CHRISTMAS—While the plot doesn't promise surprises, the cast includes such live wires as Delroy Lindo, Loretta Devine and Regina King. Rated PG-13.


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