Wild River
Released: 1960

Now Playing? No
In the Deep South in the 1930s, the Tennessee River overflows its banks, floods farmland, destroys crops and kills people. But the New Deal has a solution: the Tennessee Valley Authority, a series of huge dams that will not only stop the flooding, but provide the valley with cheap power. All the farmers in the area have sold their land to the U.S. except one woman, 70-year-old Ella Garth, Wild River is a great, passionate, powerful film - in my opinion, Elia Kazan's finest work, and one of the five or six finest American sound films. It has a lyricism and compassion that almost break your heart.
Wild Rovers

Tired of his job at a ranch owned by Walter Buckman (Karl Malden), Frank Post (Ryan O'Neal) wants to pull a heist, and when his much older coworker, Ross Bodine (William Holden), sees nothing better on the horizon, the cowboys agree to team up for the crime. After filling their pockets with loot from a local bank, Frank and Ross ride toward what they hope is freedom. But the younger Buckmans, Paul (Joe Don Baker) and John (Tom Skerritt), pursue them over the rough land of the Southwest. (TMS)

"In this world, there are only two tragedies," Oscar Wilde famously wrote. "One is not getting what we want. The other is getting it."
Will Penny
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A highly regarded Western that this reviewer, unfortunately, has never seen. Many people like it - but director Tom Gries' track record is spotty.

A struggling lawyer and high school wrestling coach (Paul Giamatti) defrauds an elderly man with dementia (Burt Young), then takes in the old man's teenage grandson (Alex Shaffer). This enjoyable dramedy, only kinda-sorta a sports movie, works, thanks partly to a great supporting cast. (K.B.)

Winchester 73
Released: 1950
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Prepared by Fritz Lang, who turned over directorial reigns to Mann before production, this is one of the classic Westerns of the '50s: the brisk, violent beautifully landscaped saga of a stolen rifle that passes from hand to hand, with its original owner in hot pursuit.
Wind Across The Everglades
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
It is 1905. Deep in the Florida everglades, a group of wild, raffish swamp tramps - led by the irrepressible "Cottonmouth" - are hunting down and slaughtering flocks of wild egrets, selling the elegant feathers to the ladies of the towns and cities. One man takes exception to the slaughter: a nature studies teacher named Walt Murdock. And he mounts a determined campaign to stop it. But as Murdock and Cottonmouth will both discover, morality can be as fluid and treacherous as the dank, mucky swamp water, and the battle between "civilization" and "wilderness" is never an easy one to call. Nick Ray fell ill before finishing this film, but it's one of his most beautiful, strange and moving works: a savage, despairing poem, and a plea for ecology a decade before its time.

An angel (Bruno Ganz) seeks a way to become human when he falls in love with lonely trapeze artist (Solveig Dommartin).
Winnebago Man
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This glib, unpleasant documentary tracks down Jack Rebney, an unwitting YouTube star on the strength of his obscene tirades in outtakes from a 1980s RV marketing film. The film gestures at insight but mostly just condescends to its subject. (K.B.)
Winnie the Pooh
Released: 2011
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The topic is Eeyore's missing tail, but this pleasantly discursive story flits to and fro, giving each indelible character a moment. The spirit of A.A. Milne's stories and Disney's endearing screen adaptations -- their gentle soul -- has been sweetly preserved. (K.J.)
Winning
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Good, serious drama about an aging race-car driver trying to make sense of his life. Working on this movie, Paul Newman developed the fascination with racing that eventually led him to a new career and,eventually, the U.S.A. championship. (M.W.)

Winter of Frozen Dreams
Released: 2009
Rated: R

A prostitute murders two sad sacks for their insurance money. Based on the Madison-based nonfiction book by Karl Harter, the film comes nowhere near matching the book i neither drama or insight. (B.L.)
Winter Sleepers
Released:
Rated: NR

From German director Tom Tykwer, who brought us that powerful jolt of adrenaline, Run Lola Run.
