MovieDescription
Up the Yangtze
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
By focusing on two teenagers employed by a cruise boat that takes Western tourists up and down the Yangtze River near the gargantuan Three Gorges Dam, Chinese-Canadian documentarian Yung Chang shows us what's behind the smile that China has been presenting to the rest of the world. The movie's so beautfilly shot and edited that you wonder whether these are truly candid moments we're seeing, but life on the boat is nevertheless a fascinating East-meets-West crossroads where neither side is clearly understood by the other. (K.W.)

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
All the world's a stage and in Va Savoir, the characters play many parts
Vacancy
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this well-executed exercise in backroads paranoia, a married couple (Luke Wilson, Kate Beckinsale) fear they'll be victims of a snuff film at an isolated motel. The film works best when it slows down to catch its breath. (M.S.)
Vagabond
Released: 1985
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Always a presence in her films, the director appears here in the flesh
Vajra Sky Over Tibet
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
John Bush's documentary celebrates Tibetan Buddhism and bears witness to its gradual destruction due to Chinese repression. Vajra Sky grants us access to rituals rarely seen by Western eyes, though in the end it feels more like a reverential guided tour than a movie. (J.R.)
Valentine
Released: 2001
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Valentine's Day
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A bevy of boldface names (Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, many more) star in Garry Marshall's tale of intertwining relationships in L.A. The movie is aggressively unfunny and unromantic. (K.J.)
Valentino
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Nureyev, who should have played Nijinsky and not Valentino, is a poor actor, but this excessive and outlandish bio does have compensations: namely, another wild display of Ken Russell's unfettered imagination.
Valentino: The Last Emperor
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The legendary fashion designer Valentino emerges as a complex, difficult man in this documentary, which follows him as he prepares for two big shows (and lives in his impossibly lavish homes). The film could do a better job of explaining what good fashion design actually is, but Valentino's relationship with his longtime life and business partner is moving. (K.B.)
Valiant
Released: 2005
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Valkyrie
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Col. Claus von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) plans a suitcase-bomb attack on Hitler. We all know how it ends, and that foreknowledge dooms this much troubled account, which topples beneath the weight of memory, and history. (M.S.)
Vampire Academy
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A half-human, half-vampire teen (Zoey Deutch) must protect a community of gentle, mortal bloodsuckers from a clan of wicked, immortal ones. Though this movie is proof that tweens are still smitten with vampires, it's also a depressingly banal soap opera. (M.S.)
