MovieDescription
Lonely Hearts
Released: 1981
Rated:
Now Playing? No
At first it may strike you as an Australian Marty - the humane, comically observed romance of two of life's wallflowers (here a schoolteacher and a middle-aged piano tuner and amateur actor) but writer-director Paul Cox has a darker, more psychologically trenchant side, which showed up later in Man Of Flowers and My First Wife and flirts around the edges here. Still, it's warm and witty, one of the more popular of the recent Australian imports. Is should amuse you greatly.

Long Day's Journey Into Night
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The ashen day and increasingly tragic night of the Tyrone family, whose patriarch is a penny-pinching ham actor, whose mother is morphine addicted and close to madness, and whose scions are a self-flagellating drunkard and a tubercular rebel and writer - all of them lost in dreams, lost in the past, lost in an all-encompassing pain and anguish. This is a superb transcription of O'Neill's autobiographical drama, and all the actors are beyond praise. (Spencer Tracy - O'Neills favorite actor and his original choice for Hickey in The Iceman Cometh - made the worst mistake of his career in turning down the role of James Tyrone, Sr., after Hepburn had accepted Mary.) The high points are probably Robards' mad, sobbing alcoholic cadenza, and the final expression on Hepburn's face as she murmurs, "Oh yes; that was the summer I met James Tyrone. And was so happy, for a time..."

Hapless con men in Vegas, from the director of Harold and Maude, Shampoo and The Last Detail. Critically blasted; I haven't seen it.

Looking For Mr. Goodbar
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
By day, Terry Dunn is a schoolteacher for the deaf and disadvantaged. But by night, Terry prowls the singles bars and discos, looking for easy, anonymous sex. Someone's going to kill Terry, but in this cocaine neon twilight, with the crash of rock and roll on a steamy breeze and the sighs of climax splitting the blackness, who can guess the shadowy contours of his face? Le Petit Mort...The Big Sleep...The Perfect Score. This was a controversial film, and a lot of people hated it - including most of Hollywood, where you criticize singles bars and the creed of the Orgy at your own peril - but there's something in Richard Brook's impassioned, intransigent moralism I find appealing. His adaptation of the Judith Rossner novel is shocking and livid and it seethes with energy; and, as Terry, Diane Keaton is devastating.

Looper
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This exhilarating time-travel thriller follows a hit man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who has to track down his 30-years-older self (Bruce Willis). Sharply constructed dialogue and action sequences explore the notion of sacrifice, and the fantastical conceit reveals remarkable ideas about changing the world by changing oneself. (S.R.)
Loose Cannons: The Movie
Released: 2008
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Local filmmaker Andy Schlachtenhaufen created this delightful spoof of Hong Kong action cinema, in which an ROTC-like student group serves and protects the UW campus whether it wants to be served and protected or not. The gunfights and chase scenes are all entirely credible within the film’s comic universe, and Schlachtenhaufen gets totally committed performances from everybody in his large cast. (K.W.)
Lord Jim
Released: 1985
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Joseph Conrad's great novel of cowardice and redemption - of the disgraced British seaman "Tuan Jim," his exile to exotic Patusan and the peculiar vise of tragedy which twice catchs him in its grip - adapted with great lavishness and care by Richard Brooks, who is said to have reread the novel over 50 times while preparing his script. Brooks has a less devious or tortured nature than Conrad, and he loses much of Lord Jim's subtle, many-layered texture - but the movie is a good spectacle-adventure anyway. As the evil "Gentleman Brown," James Mason gives a nearly perfect portrayal of suave, implacable villainy.
Lord Love A Duck
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Very black satire on California adolescence, sex and progressive education; definitely one of a kind. (M.W.)

Lore
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
As Allied forces sweep across Germany, five children embark on a journey that challenges their notions of family, love and friendship. Though some moments of the story aren’t very believable, writer-director Cate Shortland has crated something remarkable by forcing us to sympathize with a would-be Aryan princess. (M.B.)
Lorna's Silence
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In a complicated scheme, an ambivalent Albanian woman (Arta Dobroshi) plots against her husband of convenience (Jérémie Renier), a Belgian junkie. There's no shortage of tough-talking thugs, but the Dardenne brothers' unsettling, very controlled crime movie keeps spilling over, satisfyingly, into melodrama. (K.B.)
