MovieDescription
ParaNorman 3D
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A kid with paranormal abilities (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) must save his town from a witch's curse. The scenery delights with wonderful details, and the message about bullying is refreshingly complex. (S.R.)

Now Playing? No

Cross-talking chums stumble into tropical intrigue. Fond foolishness from their peak years. (M.W.)
Parental Guidance
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Modern problems collide with old-school parenting methods when a man (Billy Crystal) and his eager-to-please wife (Bette Midler) babysit their three grandchildren. The comedy is nothing special, but the actors deserve credit for their professionalism. (L.C.)
Pariah
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this engaging, wholly original film, a black, lesbian high schooler (Adepero Oduye) is uncomfortable in the bar scene and frustrated at home. It's a coming-out film, but it breaks that mold by being thoroughly unpredictable. (M.B.)
Paris 36
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Amid the social turmoil of 1936 France, the backstage crew tries to reopen a shuttered Paris music hall. The songs are sweet, the nostalgia mawkish. (K.B.)
Paris Belongs to Us

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The UW Cinemathequeâ??s series on French director Jacques Rivette continues with the 1960 story of amateur actors putting on a production of Shakespeareâ??s Pericles.
Paris Does Strange Things (elena et les hommes)
Released: 0000
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Although the English dubbing hurts this film - Jean Renoir himself has said that, in more civilized times, "dubbers" would have been burned at he stake for presuming to put soul of one person into the body of another - it remains a charming, effervescent, thoroughly delightful comedy. It is Renoir's rumination on the notorious "Boulander Affair," that archetypal erotic-political scandal; and it features on of Ingrid Bergman's most sensual and amusingly seductive performances. Here is a comment on "Elena" by the brilliant French critic-director Jean-Luc Godard: "...If Elena' is the French filme par excellence, it is because it is the most intelligent film in the world. Art and at the same time the theory of art. Beauty and at the same time the secret of beauty...'Elena' is Renoir's most Mozartian film. Not so much in its exterior appearance, like "the Rules of the Game," but in its philosophy. The man who finishes 'French Can Can" and prepares for 'Elena' is, morally, a little like the man who completes the Concerto for Clarinet and launches into "The Magic Flute". In substance, the same irony and the same distaste. In form, the same audacity of simplicity. To the question, "What is Cinema?" "Elena" replies: 'More than cinema.'"
Paris Was a Woman

Paris, je t'aime
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Love is the unifying theme in this anthology film, in which 18 teams of filmmakers were assigned to make a five- or six-minute narrative short about a separate Parisian neighborhood. They all go out of their way to avoid cliché, showing the Paris that other movies somehow missed. (K.V.)
Paris, Texas

Parker
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
After being double-crossed, a professional thief (Jason Statham) recruits an unlikely partner (Jennifer Lopez) to hijack his former crew's next big score. The story is an utter snooze, which is the kiss of death for a blood-and-guts action flick. (K.J.)
Parkland
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A variety of events surrounding President John F. Kennedy's assassination are reenacted, including his trip to Dallas' Parkland Hospital. Paul Giamatti is memorable as the man who films the murder, but the narrative doesn't provide enough perspective. (K.B.)

Party Monster

Seth Green and Macaulay Culkin debauch an entire city
Passage To Marseilles
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The escape of five patriotic convicts from Devil's Island, to battle the Nazis and Vichyites. This was a re-union, two years later, of the director, the writer, and much of the cast, of Casablanca; but it pales beside its predecessor -- both because of the incredibly convoluted structure (four flashbacks, all inside each other), and an apparent attempt to copy the poetic French movie fatalism of the late '30s...so reverent an attempt that it dries up all the wisecracks and vernacular. Still, a good, mood drenched WB film noir. (Too "noir", it seems, for its own good...)

Pat and Mike
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A starchy, upper-crust, athletic phenom joins forces with a salty old coach; casting an appraising eye on her form, he remarks: "There isn't much meat on her, but what's here is, is choice." Close to the best of all the Tracy-Hepburn comedies; with a spry, witty script and nimble direction by the great Adam's Rib trio of Ruth Gordon, Garson Kanin and George Cukor.
Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Sam Peckinpah's own favorite among his work was this savage, gloomy retelling of the Billy the Kid legend - perhaps the most tragic of all his films. It's brilliantly cast, graced with an original Bob Dylan score (including "Knockin' on Heaven's Door), and suffused with fatalism. Unfortunately, it only circulates to a variety of butchered, reedited prints: Peckinpah reportedly stole the only complete version of his preferred cut after the studio refused to release it. But Sam was right: it is a great movie.
