MovieDescription
Moonlighting
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jerzy Skolimowski's tense, potent parable of modern alienation, set against the backdrop of the Solidarity revolt and the subsequent imposition of martial law in Poland. Here, those turbulent events manage to strand a crew of workers, who are remodeling a Polish official's home, in London. Desperate, their foreman conceals the truth from them, drives them relentlessly, steals food when the money dries up. Barely speaking the language (his workers don't speak it at all), he is the ultimate alienated figure, separate from everyone around him. Jeremy Irons interprets this role brilliantly; the film itself is a near-masterpiece.

Beautifully photographed impressionistic melodrama of love on the run in the Southern swamps. Poetic, romantic, full of feeling: a real sleeper. (M.W.)

Rated: PG-13

In 1965, a romantic boy at camp (Jared Gilman) runs away with a girl (Kara Hayward) as adults (Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray) make chase. With this tender film, Wes Anderson has crafted an elegant metaphor for adolescence. (K.J.)

Morgan!
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A somewhat crazed Marxist working-class artist goes on a series of wild, imaginative binges - on the eve of his aristocratic ex-wife's wedding to an upper class nerd - climaxing in a gorilla-suit rampage that gets him institutionalized. Very sharp, mordant, skillful comedy; in retrospect, it expresses its era the "mid" mid-'60s, better than most of its contemporaries.
Morituri
Released: 1948
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Morning Glory
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this comedy, a TV producer (Rachel McAdams) coerces a solemn journalist (Harrison Ford) into cohosting a breezy morning news program. There are real problems with the performances and the story, but darn if I didn't laugh a lot anyway. (K.B.)
Morning Light
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A transpacific sailing race is examined in this documentary.
Morocco
Released: 1930
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In 1930, a German movie called The Blue Angel - directed by the American Josef Von Sternberg - had made an international sensation of a disturbingly leggy blonde actress named Marlene Dietrich, a voluptuous siren whose smoky eyes and sultry voice sent out threatening signals of forbidden pleasure and sadomasochistic abandon. Von Sternberg immediately brought his prot�©g�© to Hollywood, and the result was this astonishingly beautiful, perverse, poetic, cynical movie, all about a "kept woman," Amy Jolly, in radiant finery and male drag...falling for Tom Brown, a Foreign Legionnaire with a mocking smile and a flower behind his ear. Morocco is a symphony of light and shade; its monochrome photography by Lee Garmes is a revelation,,,and the oscillations of the plot between romantic absurdity, hard-boiled cynicism and knowing perversity lend an edgy, nervous tension to the glowing imagery. Von Sternberg was the supreme Hollywood esthete. He always disclaimed - ingenuously, of course - any interest in theme or content. But he created his own chiaroscuro psychological landscapes with such intensity that, years later, an official of Morocco could compliment him on his on-location photography - for a movie that had never strayed from the Paramount sound stages. (M.W.)

Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears
Released: 1981
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Oscar winning comedy about love among the little people. Fetching, but kitschy; I liked Moscow's films better in the era of Eisenstein and Dovzhenko, when they did believe in tears.
Moscow On The Hudson
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A sweet-tempered Russian circus saxophonist (Robin Williams, in his best performance) defects, on the spur of the moment, in Manhattan's chi-chi Bloomingdale's. From then on, his story is one of rude shocks and lost illusions, as his paradise of "Take the A Train," easy sex and Calvin Klein jeans turns into a wilderness of crime, humiliation and violence. This is basically a funny-sad story about a man whose kindness and gentle instincts make him a stranger in both strange lands, but it's done with brio, tenderness and high humor.

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In director Joon-Ho Bong's superb, droll thriller, a mentally disabled man (Bin Won) is coerced into confessing he murdered a schoolgirl, and his mother (Hye-ja Kim) looks for the real killer. It's a testament to Kim's skill that her character remains sympathetic even as she makes increasingly appalling choices. (K.B.)

Mothra

Tokyo is menaced by yet another of Inohira Honda's endless collection of huge, radiation-drenched monsters. The cast includes the ineffable Franky Satai, with Yumi and Jelly Itch as delectable twin wizards. (This one should wash the taste of Hitler's Brain out of your mouth.)
