Opening This Week

APPALOOSA—Solid reviews thus far for this Ed Harris-directed Western. Harris and Viggo Mortensen play two gunslingers hired by the oppressed citizens of a mining town for protection from the corrupt local tycoon and his outlaws. Sure, sounds a little like Seven Samurai, or Shane, or Deadwood... . But, a good Western is always worth the price of popcorn. Jeremy Irons plays the heavy. Rated R.

KARZZZ—Karz was a wildly popular disco era reincarnation revenge romance starring Rishi Kapoor, already heavily referenced in last year¹s smash Om Shanti Om. The straightforward remake stars singer and aspiring superstar Himesh Reshammiya along with Urmila Matondkar, a '90s heroine slightly past her sell-by date.—LB

MAX PAYNE—Mark Wahlberg stars as the video game action hero. Rated R.

MONSIEUR VERDOUX—Charlie Chaplin's 1947 Monsieur Verdoux is a bold, troubling, funny film, as exciting today as it was over 60 years ago, and arguably even more relevant. It stars Chaplin as Henri Verdoux, a man who marries and murders a series of wives for their money. It's an endlessly playful movie — almost every scene is infused with subtle comedic bits played and directed by Chaplin in a way that supports the film's somber (sometimes portentous) themes even while occasionally veering into slapstick. Verdoux is not only a relevant movie, but an extremely well-made one, executed with such simple cinematic grammar that Chaplin achieves great effect with seemingly small decisions. Not rated. —NG

SEX DRIVE—Readers might rate this film considerably lower if they are not fans of the likes of Eurotrip; fans of over-the-top R-rated comedy will find plenty to amuse them. The storyline, based on a book (!) is typical teen-movie setup: Nice guy Ian (Josh Zuckerman) attempts to meet an Internet fling by "borrowing" a 1969 GTO from his 'roid-raging brother (James Marsden), and on-the-road misadventures follow. The plot is as by-the-numbers as they come, but the individual incidents achieve unique levels of outrageousness, particularly anything with Marsden; Seth Green as a sarcastic Amish farmer; and Clark Duke as a bespectacled sidekick who's inexplicably attractive to the ladies. The film also achieves an odd sweetness in the relationship between Ian and his female friend Felicia (Amanda Crew), whom he'd prefer to his online crush. Rob Reiner's The Sure Thing did this story with more intelligence, but it didn't have a climax involving a gun-wielding Mexican donut. Rated R. —ZS

  • Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning in The Secret Lives of Bees
THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES—Resting on a central metaphor as hollow as a honey comb, this Hallmark Hall of Fame refugee tells the mid-1960s fable of a 14-year-old white girl, Lily (Dakota Fanning) and her black caregiver, Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson), who escape a racist town in South Carolina for another, marginally less racist town in South Carolina (shot on location in and around Lumberton, NC). There, they stumble across a bee farm run by three sisters/ African-American archetypes: August, the maternal mammy (Queen Latifah); May, the vaguely mystical dimwit (Sophie Okonedo); and June, the independent-minded activist (Alicia Keys). Lily's prolonged search for identity doubles as a mawkish showcase of white guilt. In the end, August spouts winsome bons mots, June gets married, Rosaleen gets to vote, and Lily gets to kiss a black guy. The headliner is the now-teenage Fanning, who sheds her erstwhile precocious idiosyncrasies for a budding maturity (and physique) that recalls a young Jodie Foster. Rated PG-13. —NM

SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO—Japanese action flick gives nod to spaghetti westerns. Rated R.

Current Releases

AN AMERICAN CAROL—A "fictional" lefty filmmaker who looks an awful lot like Michael Moore learns that he was wrong to hate America. Please... God... make... it... stop. Rated PG-13.

BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUAMilo and Otis meets "Yo Quiero Taco Bell." The No. 1 movie in America, that's right. Rated PG.

BODY OF LIES—As director Ridley Scott's filmmaking technique becomes increasingly indistinguishable from the hyperkinetic stylings of brother Tony, his ability to intertwine subtext with visual razzmatazz becomes more thorny. Drawn from journalist David Ignatius' spy novel Penetration, this game of geopolitical hopscotch plays more like Syriana on speed. A CIA operative, Roger Ferris (Leonardo DiCaprio), and his Machiavellian Langley handler (a portly Russell Crowe) work to capture a notorious international terrorist responsible for suicide bombings throughout Jordan and Europe. William Monahan's screenplay effectively conveys the American intelligence community's failure to appreciate that Islamic terrorism is also a crisis for the Arab world, and a mindset that targets/demonizes a region instead an ideology is doomed to bring about failure and conflagration. Unfortunately, Scott strains to weave the diffuse plot strands into an organized tapestry, leaving several crackerjack action sequences and sturdy performances by DiCaprio, Mark Strong (as head of Jordanian intelligence), and Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (as Ferris' nascent love) to shoulder the film. Rated R. —NM

BURN AFTER READING—A CIA agent abruptly dumped from the Balkans desk (John Malkovich) fumes that the agency is all bureaucracy and no mission. Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt, a couple of clueless personal trainers, stumble onto a computer disc of his bitter, rambling autobiography, which they fancy they can turn into ready cash—somehow. Burn After Reading depicts an irritable society where everyone is going ballistic, shrieking into the telephone, at the boss, at the traffic, at their spouses and sex partners and futilely at the whole world. People exercise and hydrate frantically, joylessly, the same way they have sex, and blather about "reinvention." Like an intricate musical contraption, the people surveilling, stalking and intriguing will cross paths in writer/ directors Joel and Ethan Coen's signature style of bizarre characters and slashing humor. Rated R. —LB

CITY OF EMBER—As the film tells us at the outset, "on the day the world ended," survivors are embedded in an underground metropolis, with boxed instructions on how to regain the surface after Ember's bicentennial. As the massive generator disintegrates, telegraphing doom, two plucky teens, Lina (spooky Saoirse Ronan from Atonement) and Doon (goth-y Harry Treadaway) have to parse the puzzle box before civilization as they know it collapses. Post-apocalyptic, yes, but this is also clearly a metaphor for the disaster that is the Bush/ Cheney End of Days. Still, dwindling supplies, a collapsing economy and state corruption cannot quite extinguish the spark of life in a few old timers, such as Doon's dad, played by Tim Robbins, and an ancient fitter of even more ancient pipes, Martin Landau. City, based on Jeanne Duprau's novel and directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House), moves briskly—aided by Martin Laing's Victorian tinkerer production design and Ruth Myers' knitty costumes—as Lina and Doon approach gigantic creatures—or salvation—lurking just outside. Rated PG. —LB

THE DARK KNIGHT—The storyline is at times bloated and meandering, but the late Heath Ledger's performance is so mesmerizing that it transcends the real-life tragedy surrounding his final bow: He emotes equal parts menace, humor, eeriness, melancholy and even charisma. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE DUCHESS—The always-lovely Keira Knightly reaches again for period prestige as the charismatic Georgiana Cavendish, the 18th Century Duchess of Devonshire. The formulaic screenplay follows the palace melodrama blueprint—unhappy matrimony, difficulty siring a male scion, husband takes a mistress, spurned wife takes a younger hunky lover—that comprises the narrative to countless cinematic forerunners. Knightly is the film's slinky center, and Ralph Fiennes steals his every scene as the passive-aggressive Duke of Devonshire. But, in lieu of sounding a feminist note grounded in Georgiana's renowned, ultramodern political activism, Director Saul Dibb consigns Georgiana to the status of a victim embroiled in tawdry love triangles and sudsy intrigue. Rated PG-13. —NM

EAGLE EYE—A crackerjack premise riffing on our omnipresent technological age rapidly devolves into a pseudo-political howler. Shia LeBeouf and Michelle Monaghan are strangers who find themselves enslaved by the techno machinations of an unknown, omnipotent force. Matters remain suitably taut while the antagonist's identity and motives remain cloaked in mystery. Unfortunately, a HAL-meets-Skynet supercomputer enters the film. Four credited screenwriters slap on layers upon layers of twists and turns in hopes of stumbling upon a sensible endgame. Tack on half-baked, political invective directed against the war on terrorism and the PATRIOT Act, and you have a film geared chiefly toward paranoid conspiracy theorists. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE EXPRESS—This might be the story of Ernie Davis (Rob Brown), the first African American to win college football's Heisman Trophy. But it's the recurring apparition of Jim Brown (Darrin Dewitt Henson), Davis' running back predecessor at Syracuse University, whose complex personality gives sorely needed heft to this rote biopic. Whites are raging racists, African Americans are virtuous, and in the middle is Coach Ben Schwartzwalder (Dennis Quaid), an imperfect personification of the conflicting camps. Every run by Davis is momentous, every game a microcosm of societal struggle and everywhere the incessant music cues our emotional response; seriously, will someone please tell these directors they need not saturate every moment of screen time with fanfares? Quaid's blustery brio keeps matters entertaining, but the film fares best when graded on a curve, compared to such woeful kinsman as Glory Road and Remember the Titans. Rated PG. —NM

GHOST TOWN—Dr. Bertram Pincus (Ricky Gervais) discovers that, after an anesthesia glitch during a routine colonoscopy, he can see ghosts. Gervais plays an unlikable guy, listless and anti-social to the point of petty cruelty, but somehow makes him not just funny but sympathetic. He's the heartbeat of a movie that enjoys the comic skills of Greg Kinnear as pushy Frank (dead, he still compulsively searches for a Blackberry signal), appealing Tea Leoni (one of the few 40-ish actresses not disfigured by botox) and especially The Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi as Dr. Pinchas's polite—until-pushed dental partner. My expectations were low for this film, especially given the dumb trailers. But, I laughed, I cried. Who knew? Rated PG-13.

IGOR -- Hunchback dreams big. Rated PG.

I SERVED THE KING OF ENGLAND—Director Jirí Menzel made his international reputation with Closely Watched Trains, an adaptation of a tale by the noted author Bohumil Hrabal that appeared at the height of the Czech Prague Spring of 1968. His latest is another Hrabal adapation, and at its best it contains the buoyant humanism of Chaplin and Renoir. It's a Candide-like tale of a diminutive nobody named Jan Díte, a wide-eyed hustler who bounces from job to job, playing tricks with his money and coaxing one lass after another out of her clothes. Still, when nasty Nazis arrive for the third act, we have conflicting responses: First, there is relief, for we realize the whimsy is going to have a point; second, there is weary resignation: Oh no, not the Nazis again. What we have is a mildly amusing comedy in which every female under 30 can be relied upon to disrobe. That may be a harmless enough night out at the movies, but it's surely something less than what Hrabal intended when he was alive and writing under very different circumstances. Rated R.—DF

LAKEVIEW TERRACE—For fun, squint hard and try seeing this as an examination of the disparate viewpoints on Obamamania. In one corner, we have him as GOP bogeyman: an upper-middle-class African-American wielding authority. Across the ring is a lefty, Prius-driving, multi-culti type besieged by society's prejudices and governmental intrusion into their private lives. Trust me, that correlation is not nearly as silly as this ugly, unpleasant thriller about a widowed LAPD cop, Abel Turner (Samuel L. Jackson), who unleashes his anti-miscegenation demons onto an interracial couple (Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington) who move next door. Rated PG-13. —NM

MAMMA MIA!—The film adaptation of the long-running musical, based on ABBA's songbook, is a garish affair that treads the line between show-stopping and surreal. Rated PG-13. —NM

NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST—The feature-length sophomore effort of director Peter Sollett (Raising Victor Vargas) is an eclectic mix tape, intertwining alt-rock edginess with sappy love ballads while elevator music drones incessantly in the background. When the title characters meet-cute, they embark on an all-night odyssey to track down New York City's most popular indie rock band while coming to grips with loves both lost and newly found. Sollett fashions a nocturnal valentine to New York City, particularly its alternative club scene, and fosters a buoyant sense of time and place. Cera successfully reprises his Arrested Development persona, and the film's final half-hour presents a satisfying, Linklater-like apogee of romantic discovery. Unfortunately, the rest of the screenplay and supporting characters are like the single, icky piece of chewing gum that winds its way through the entire evening: flavorless and highly disposable. Rated PG-13. —NM

NIGHTS IN RODANTHE—In this romance based on the novel by New Bern's Nicholas Sparks, we meet Dr. Paul Flanner (Richard Gere) as he sets out for a trip, which ends at an oceanfront B&B on Hatteras Island. Tending the inn is Adrienne (Diane Lane), herself torn over an invitation to reunite with her estranged husband. Gere's presence sates the romantic appetites of the film's target audience. But the actor's feathered coif and trademark twinkle don't suit his character, a man purportedly racked with guilt. Nevertheless, the treacly plot is mere background noise for a distinctly local visual ode. Sparks might peddle in pap, but it's our pap, dagnabit. Rated PG-13. —NM

QUARANTINE—Director John Erick Dowdle and his co-writing brother Drew take a tired stab at re-making the Spanish supernatural thriller Rec (a docu-horror film about zombies). It's an attempt that quickly devolves into a mindless bite-fest. A news crew covering the night shift at a local Los Angeles firehouse is lured into a contaminated apartment building through the intrigue of a 911 call. Once inside, the mostly silent cameraman (Steve Harris) and flirty TV reporter (Jennifer Carpenter) come face to face with a disease-ridden old woman with a taste for human flesh. Here, the film takes a turn towards the familiar, with the viewfinder of the TV news camera becoming the sole storyteller as it captures tenants fighting against a rapidly-evolving disease that causes humans to shift into rabid monsters, resulting in—wait for it—a quarantine. The overplayed cinema verite schtick, lackluster acting and disjointed camera work seals the diagnosis: This film is DOA. Rated R. —KJ

RELIGULOUS—Despite Bill Maher's barely tolerable smarm and consistent celebrity condescension, this send-up of both religious belief and the sociopolitical systems it spawns mostly succeeds as a call for common sense. Maher gathers alternately comical and quizzical interviews with religious scientists, zealots, politicians and truckers (worshiping at a Charlotte Truckers Chapel incorrectly identified in Raleigh). In mash-up fashion, those interviews are spliced by pop culture ephemera—scenes from Superbad and Scarface, for instance—and Maher¹s own monologues. It culminates in a smart, sincere plea for those of little faith to unite and demand that the country be run on logic, not loyalty to god. Maher, of course, mostly ignores the benefits of communities organizing around a cause, one of many reductions that reveals Religulous as a foregone conclusion. It's a Bill Maher film, after all: In his universe, humor and hubris are acceptable substitutes for honesty and fairness. At least he offers enough courage and insight here to make his demands on his world and his audience interesting. Rated R. —DGC
