MovieDescription
Mississippi Mermaid
Released: 1969
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Like the Bride Wore Black, another Cornell Woolrich thriller, Gallicized and adapted by Francois Truffaut. Truffaut, of course, focuses more on elements of psychological romance and "love on the run" than on suspense and murder. (M.W.)
Mister Cory
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Glib hustler finds true love. Early Blake Edwards, just finding his style. (M.W.)
Mister Lonely
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Harmony Korine, the former It Boy of off-off-Hollywood filmmaking (Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy), returns to the Cinema du Poète Maudit with this sweetly sad portrait of a colony of celebrity impersonators who'd rather be a fake somebody than a real nobody. Especially given its major subplot about a flock of nuns who jump out of airplanes without parachutes to test their faith, the movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense, except on the metaphysical plane, but Diego Luna and Samantha Morton bring a touching innocence to "Michael Jackson" and "Marilyn Monroe." (K.W.)
Mobsters, Inc.
Released: 2003
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Moby Dick
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Herman Melville was a best-selling novelist when Moby Dick was published in 1851, but this grand, soaring allegory about mad Captain Ahab and the Great White Whale was so poorly received it nearly ruined him. The "respectable" critics hated it; they thought it wild and excessive, which should tell you something about "respectable" critics. John Huston's adaptation of this masterpiece, with a poetic scenario by Ray Bradbury, is good in many respects, but it has a puzzlingly bad piece of casting: Gregory Peck, who should have played Starbuck, is out of his depth as Ahab, a role that would have been perfect for Huston's old friend, Humphrey Bogart.
Mod Fuck Explosion

Model Shop
Released: 1969
Rated: M
Now Playing? No
Jacques Demy's 1969 film about an American man about to be drafted for the Vietnam War (Gary Lockwood) and an exotic woman he meets (Anouk Aimee).
Modern Romance
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Modesty Blaise
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on a popular British comic strip of the day, this film is a vicious send up of the entire James Bond mystique, with Losey pushing everything past parody into vitriolic mockery. Made by a man who obviously hates the Bond films, and regards the as amoral and corrupt, it may be, paradoxically, one of the best of the whole genre. (M.W.)
Moebius

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mogambo
Released: 1953
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ford, uncharacteristically, remakes Victor Fleming's Red Dust - which also starred Gable. Less steam; more salt.
Moliere
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Director Laurent Tirard fills in one of the major blanks in the French playwright's life: the time when he briefly disappeared from sight to forge his artistic soul. The problem is that the movie itself, which sends the young Molière (a miscast Romain Duris) off to the chateau of a wealthy merchant who needs help wooing a mistress, isn't funny. (K.W.)
Moloch
Released: 1999
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The UW Cinametheque begins one of the most demanding series in its illustrious history
Momentos
Released: 1981
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Mommie Dearest
Released: 1981
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hell hath no fury like a daughter scorned - or Mildred Pierced. (M.W.)
Mommy, What's Wrong?
Released: 1997
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Moms' Night Out
Released: 2014
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A mom (Sarah Drew) eager to spend time with her adult friends wonders if her husband can truly handle the kids for a few hours. This movie's heart is in the right place, but aesthetically speaking, it’s not terribly sophisticated. (S.D.)
Mon Oncle
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
More of M. Hulot's endless, losing battles with the modern, mechanized world. This second film in the series won Tati an Oscar for Best Foreign Film; it has much of the seraphic, cracked comic grace of both Mr. Hulot's Holiday and Playtime.
Mon Oncle D'Amerique
Released: 1980
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Another of Alain Resnais' beautiful little cinematic time sculptures; not to be missed.
Mona Lisa Smile
Released: 2003
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Julia Roberts plays a bohemian art teacher at Wellesley in the '50s
Mondays in the Sun

Money Talks

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Moneyball
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Oakland A's' general manager (Brad Pitt) faces a seemingly impossible rebuilding task. Here's a deliciously entertaining baseball movie for people who don't think they like baseball movies. (S.R.)
Mongol
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This Kazakh film spares no expense in dramatizing the early years of Genghis Khan, the warrior who founded the Mongol empire. It focuses too much on a love story, but Tadanobu Asano plays Khan with panache. (M.S.)
Monihara

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Indian director Satyajit Ray’s 1961 film tells the ghostly tale of a rich man and his jewel-obsessed wife.
