The Punisher
Released: 1989
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Purge
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A man (Ethan Hawke) and his family face a daunting test on the one night a year the government sanctions murder. This film dissects the horror genre with its startling satire of America’s relationship with violence. (M.J.)
The Purge: Anarchy
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A group of strangers band together to survive a government-sanctioned night of lawlessness. The victims-to-be could be more endearing, but it's refreshing to see a reliable character actor like Frank Grillo get the spotlight as the film's Punisher-like vigilante. (W.G.)
The Purple Plain
Released: 1955
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Downed pilot in World War II Burma fights the jungles within, the jungles without. "What burst of Buddhist inspiration," Andrew Sarris wondered, "was responsible for such a haunting exception to the unexceptional career" of Robert Parrish? (M.W.)
The Purple Rose of Cairo
Released: 1985
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Unhappily married Depression-era waitress Cecilia (Mia Farrow) earns the money while her inattentive husband, Monk (Danny Aiello), blows their meager income on getting drunk and gambling. To assuage her loneliness, Cecilia escapes to the picture show and becomes transfixed with the movie.
The Pursuit of Happiness
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The vagaries of '60s era American justice, illuminated by the plight of a youth responsible for an accidental death. Done with Robert Mulligan's usual sympathy and warmth.
The Pursuit of Happyness
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Will Smith plays a Chicago investment banker who was homeless while taking care of his son and enduring a six-month, unpaid training program with Dean Witter. Smith does a nice job of turning down the volume on his Hollywood-superstar persona. (K.W.)
The Pursuit of the Graf Spee (The Battle of the River Plate)
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The notorious World War II German pocket battleship run to earth at Montevideo harbor, and a mixture of wild carnival and stiff upper lip gallantry. Last fruit of the brilliant 15-year collaboration of Britisher Michael Powell and Hungarian German Emeric Pressburger; as in Colonel Blimp, they fabricate a strange spiritual kinship between the British and German commanders. (M.W.)
The Pyramid
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A veteran researcher and his daughter begin excavating an Egyptian pyramid but are soon lost and, of course, not alone. This horror flick insists on cramming ancient evil into a newfangled found-footage format. (W.G.)
The Queen
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Stephen Frears' work of speculative history chronicles the private thoughts and conversations that might have occurred around 1997, during some particularly chaotic moments of Queen Elizabeth II's rule. Helen Mirren is magnificent in the title role, and the film is palace intrigue at its finest. The screening kicks off Westgate's Summer Oscar Series, which features 2006's best-picture nominees on Sunday afternoons with reduced ticket prices and a free bag of popcorn. (M.B.)
The Queen of the Damned
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Queen of Versailles
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A wealthy couple builds America’s largest house, then gets burned when the real-estate market tanks. Funny and poignant, the film mocks American materialism without condescending to its subjects. (K.B.)
The Quiet
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Quiet American
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Michael Caine plays a London correspondent in Vietnam during the war

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
John Ford’s 1952 tale of a boxer (John Wayne) who returns to his native Ireland.
The Quiet Ones
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In 1970s England, a professor (Jared Harris) performs an experiment on a young woman who may be possessed by demons (Olivia Cooke). Director John Pogue favors old-fashioned spookiness over blood and guts, which is refreshing in an era of excessive onscreen gore. (M.J.)
The Quillar Memorandum
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Top drawer spy thriller, from a moody, enigmatic Harold Pinter scenario. (M.W.)
The Race to Save 100 Years
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Rage: Carrie 2
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Raid 2

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this Indonesian thriller, a policeman (Iko Uwais) goes undercover to break up a crime syndicate and end corruption in his own organization.
The Raid: Redemption
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Jakarta, Indonesia, cops raid a decrepit apartment building controlled by a drug boss and his minions. The martial-arts fighting is dazzling and inventive, but the film is light on plot and takes itself too seriously. (K.B.)
The Railway Man
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A former soldier (Colin Firth) decides to confront the man responsible for torturing him during World War II. Screenwriters Andy Paterson and Frank Cottrell Boyce adeptly shift the action back and forth between two engrossing storylines, one about the veteran's struggle with PTSD and another about his burgeoning love affair with a stranger (Nicole Kidman). (K.J.)
The Rape of Europa
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This documentary chronicles Adolf Hitler’s attempt to steal or destroy every work of art in his path, then build a citywide shrine to German culture and, of course, himself. This thoroughly researched film neatly catalogues the industrial-scale plundering, and it makes for an amazing story. (K.W.)
The Rare Breed
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jimmy Stewart, in a sort of rocking-chair Western, sings a little bull. (The bull is a prizewinner; the film isn't).
The Rat Race
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Making it - in several senses of the word - in NYC. (M.W.)
The Raven
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The best of all Roger Corman's Edgar Allen Poe adaptations - and the one that owes the least to its original source. A fantastic parody about haunted castles, black magic, and dueling sorcerers.
The Raven
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Baltimore's favorite son gets a revisionist makeover in this frankly dull and frequently off-putting Sherlock Holmes-ian take on the final days of Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, an awful casting choice). It's a mishmash of serial killings based on Poe stories. (M.S.)
The Reader
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Based on Bernhard Schlink’s Oprah-endorsed novel, The Reader wrestles with the notion of Germany’s guilt and responsibility for its war atrocities, and although things doesn’t quite add up, the movie’s beautifully rendered and features wonderful performances by Kate Winslet and David Kross, not to mention a movie-stealing cameo by Lena Olin. Kross is a 15-year-old kid who has an affair with a woman (Winslet) twice his age, only to discover, several years later, that she’d been a guard at Auschwitz. (K.W.)
The Real Cancun
Released: 2003
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A Girls Gone Wild video as cultural anthropology
The Real Dirt on Farmer John
