MovieDescription
J. Edgar
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Director Clint Eastwood flashes back to the early days of J. Edgar Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio), through the creation of the FBI and its rise to prominence. The film almost never offers the buzz of discovery, and DiCaprio's performance registers as forced. (S.R.)
J'accuse!
Released: 1919
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Restoration of the original cut of director Abel Gance's anti-war tale of two soldiers -- one married and the other having an affair with the first man's wife -- who meet in the trenches of World War I.
Jack and Jill
Released: 2011
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this awful comedy, Adam Sandler plays both an ad executive and his needy twin sister. The only saving grace is Al Pacino playng a version of himself. (M.S.)
Jack Frost
Released: 1998
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Pillsbury Snowboy at best, a pile of scratchy Styrofoam at worst
Jack Goes Boating
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Friends set up a nebbishy but sweet middle-aged man (Philip Seymore Hoffman) with an equally shy woman (Amy Ryan), and the stage is set for far more than a pleasant evening's repast. Despite a quartet of interesting, if overly familiar, New York characters, Hoffman's first outing behind the lens is a minor work in the career of a major actor. (M.S.)
Jack Reacher
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A former Army investigator (Tom Cruise) and a defense attorney (Rosamund Pike) try to determine if a military sniper is responsible for a deadly shooting in a sleepy town. The story is both dark and humorous, and Cruise’s performance is surprisingly magnetic. (L.B.)
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An undercover CIA analyst (Chris Pine) heads to Russia to investigate a hunch about an impending attack on the U.S. Pine is likable but generic, and the script is way too boring for an action flick. (K.J.)
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit: IMAX
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
While working undercover, a young CIA analyst (Chris Pine) discovers a terrorist plot to attack the U.S. and ruin its economy.

Jack the Ripper and Butterfinger the 13th
Released: 2011

Jackass 3
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Jackass is 10 years old this year, but thankfully the masochistic band of gross-out artists evince no more maturity than when the show first premiered on MTV. The cunning stunt work is slightly less shocking this time out, though several vignettes will still make you hurl. (M.S.)

Jackass: Number Two
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Johnny Knoxville and his band of thrill-seekers continue their quest to create entertainment out of self-immolation. The movie is a collection of absurdist, socially transgressive living-art pieces (for example, diving into the ocean to pass as shark bait), and it's a strangely compelling experience. (J.R.)

Jackass: The Movie
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Jackpot
Released: 2001
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Jackson County Jail
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A chic Los Angeles career woman journeys through the back lands and takes an abrupt plunge from civilization into savagery, from one side of the law to the other after she is falsely arrested and raped by the police in her cell. A genuine modern B-movie classic, directed with relentless pace, tension and drive: a paranoid vision that becomes, as you watch it, eerily convincing, disturbing real. (There was an inferior TV remake, with the same director and star, called Outside Chance.) (M.W.)

Always a presence in her films, the director appears here in the flesh
