A Man Escaped
Released:

A Man For All Seasons
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Robert Bolt's stirring problem play about Thomas More: his crisis of consciences, his clash with Henry VIII, his martyrdom. Tastefully but somewhat lifelessly done, though the actors have a field day.
A Man's Castle
Released: 1933
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this Depression-era drama, the gruff and homeless Bill (Spencer Tracy) decides to help out the beautiful, destitute Trina (Loretta Young). Trina falls for Bill, and they set up house together in a shantytown, but he longs to get out of New York City and hit the open road. When Trina discovers she's pregnant, Bill plans to rob a toy store with a shifty drifter named Bragg (Arthur Hohl) in order to leave her with money. But will the scheme pan out? (TMS)

I'm glad/sad to report that it's neither as bad as I feared nor as good as I hoped.
A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A genuine oddity: the Warner Brothers "stock company," plus Mickey Rooney, in one of legendary German stage director Max Reinhardt's spectacular stage mountings...in this case, of the Bard's gossamer romantic fantasy of Puck and Oberon and Titania and the realms of Peablossom and Mustardseed. It's easy to laugh at the casting: How often can you see the stars of Public Enemy or Golddiggers of 1933 doing Shakespeare? But, in fact, James Cagney is a superb Bottom and Rooney's almost frightening savage Puck - done while he was partially crippled - is a minor revelation. Warners never really followed up this elaborate stab at "culture" - unless you want to count the Paul Muni "biographies" - but their Midsummer Night's Dream remains one of the strangest and most endearing of the numerous Shakespearean films.
A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy
Released: 1981
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Woody Allen's sly, fey little gloss on both Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream and Ingmar Bergman's Smiles Of A Summer Night, with three ineluctably horny couples mating and mismating, tiptoeing down staircases, scaling trellises and hoeing off to the babbling brook for tryst upon tryst. Delightful.
A Mighty Heart
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This docudrama offers a blow-by-blow account of the effort to rescue Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and beheaded by Muslim extremists. Angelina Jolie gives a strong performance as Pearl’s wife, who held both herself and the investigation together. (K.W.)
A Mighty Wind
Released: 2003
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Folkies provide the target this time for Christopher Guest and company
A Million Ways to Die in the West
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Seth MacFarlane plays a cowardly farmer who falls for a gunslinger's wife (Charlize Theron) in this new western comedy he directed, produced and cowrote. The film is jam-packed with jokes, but MacFarlane desperately needs a judicious editor. (M.B.)
A Mirrored Romance
Released: 2002
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A Most Wanted Man
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the leader of a German spy group in this thriller adapted from John Le Carré's 2008 novel. Director Anton Corbijn knows that the threat of violence can jangle the nerves more than onscreen brutality, and Hoffman's performance is nuanced and moving. (K.J.)

A Night At The Opera
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Otis B. Driftwood, Fiorello and Tomasso vs. Puccini, Verdi, Richard Wagner and the hoariest heights of Manhattan culture. Allan Jones has unfortunately replaced Zeppo, but Night At The Opera is loaded with great Marxian bits, including Groucho's sublime recovery when Margaret Dumont catches him two-timing her in a restaurant: "Do you know why I sat with Her? Because she reminded me of you! Of course! That's why I'm sitting here with you - because you remind me of you. Your eyes! Your lips! Everything about you reminds me of you - except you. How do you account for that?" Better than an evening at the Met.
A Night at the Roxbury
Released: 1998
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A Night in Casablanca
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The last "real" Marx Brothers movie - a sendup of the '40s fad for "foreign intrigue" - and, as such, a milestone. They appeared together at least three more times, but not really as a team, and their last time out they were introduced by an affable, beaming G.E. Theater announcer named Ronald Reagan. Sic transit gloria mundi...
A Night of Animated Shorts
Released: 2000

A Night To Remember
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Titanic sinks again. (M.W.)
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Jackie Earle Haley is a slight and pale imitation of Robert Englund as the original Freddy Kreuger in this dull, banal, and oddly uninspired remake of the 1984 film about the dream-stalking murderer. (M.S.)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Released: 1984
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A Patch of Blue
Released: 1965
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A Perfect Couple

Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In Robert Altman’s 1979 comedy, two ordinary types meet through a video dating service.
A Perfect Getaway
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich are newlyweds who wonder if their new hiking buddies are killers. In its own delightfully silly and manipulative way, this is one of the most effective paranoid thrillers of the new millennium. (M.S.)
A Piece of the Action
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Suave con-artists are forced to aid ghetto youth project: An amusing variation on "the Sting". (M.W.)
A Place at the Table
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A documentary following three individuals from different parts of the country who struggle to find adequate nutrition.
A Place Called Chiapas
Released: 1998
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A Place For Lovers
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
De Sica again, with a glossy, and slightly empty romance that is at the furthest remove from his stunning portrayals of poverty, Bicycle Thieves and Shoeshine..(M.W.)
A Place in the Sun
Released: 1951
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A young man named Clyde Griffith's has that most sterling of American virtues - he wants to "make something of himself". Clyde is also a romantic; he's fallen madly in love with a ravishing, voilet-eyed heiress, who reciprocates his affection. Sound promising? Unfortunately, it wasn't Horatio Alger who wrote this story. It was Theodore Dreiser, and like its original title, An American Tragedy, it resonates with doom and fatality.
A Polite Bribe
Released: 2013
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Robert Orlando's documentary about how the apostle Paul used a bribe to preserve the early Christian movement.
