Nora Prentiss
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Doc expires from overdose of oomph. (M.W.)
Norbit
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Once again, Eddie Murphy slaps on the latex to play multiple roles: a nice-guy nerd and his two-tons-of-fun monster of a wife. It's a distinctly un-PC gross-out comedy in which the characters are so rude and crude that we have no emotional stake in anybody. (K.W.)
North by Northwest
Released: 1959
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 classic about an ad man (Cary Grant) mistakenly pursued by spies.
North Country

North Dallas 40
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Extremely cynical look at pro-football from the novel by ex-Michigan State and Dallas Cowboys receiver Pete Gent. Nick Nolte is playing a surrogate for Gent, and the Mac Davis character is pretty obviously Don Meredith. (M.W.)
North Face
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In 1936, a pair of insouciant mountain climbers (Benno Fürmann, Florian Lukas) compete to scale the unconquered north face of a peak in the Alps. The climbing sequences are stunning and devastating, and squalid Nazi politics hang over everything. (K.B.)
North to Alaska
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A sort of Northeastern copy of Rio Bravo, notable for Ernie Kovacs' oily hambone of a villain.

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Made on a shoestring in North Dakota, this beautifully photographed drama of the farm-labor movement circa 1900 was the winner of the Camera d'Or (Best Film by a New Director) at the Cannes Film Festival. Brooding, humane, honest, with a lovely Bermanesque edge to the visuals.
Northern Pursuit
Released: 1943
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Canadian Mounties vs. Nazis: another Raoul Walsh barn-burner. (M.W.)
Northfork
Released: 2003

Northwest Mounted Police
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Laconic Texas Ranger teams up with Mounties on cross-continental manhunt that climaxes in a flabbergasting "last stand." Typical DeMille: overblown, ludicrous, entertaining. (M.W.)
Northwest Passage
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Superb Western from the Kenneth Roberts novel, about the search for a continent spanning American waterway. Picturesque, exciting; an excellent rendering of the fatigue, pressure and terror that beset any explorer. One scene - the deranged ranger with the head in his bag - haunted my nightmares for years. (M.W.)

Not Easily Broken
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The marriage of a struggling contractor and high-end real estate agent grows increasingly troubled. Thinly plotted, the film eventually loosens up into something pleasant -- aside from the offensively paternalistic voiceovers. (T.E.)
Not Fade Away
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In 1960s New Jersey, Doug (John Magaro) drops out of college to devote his energies to the rock band he founded in high school, much to the chagrin of his father (James Gandolfini). When Gene (Jack Huston), the band's lead singer, has a mishap that temporarily knocks him out as frontman, Doug takes over. The band's new sound is a hit with the crowd, leading to Gene's ever-increasing resentment. Meanwhile, Wells (Will Brill), another bandmate, struggles with the group's reach for fame. (TMS)

Notes on a Scandal
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This Hitchcockian character study is a wonderfully nasty piece of work, with Judi Dench starring as a schoolteacher out to destroy a new colleague (Cate Blanchett). Blanchett exudes a pillowly softness, but it's Dench who, given a role she could really sink her teeth into, leaves bite marks all over the screen. (K.W.)
