Ordinary People

Now Playing? No
Suicidal son in an average middle-class suburban home is tortured by his mother's hostility, his father's passivity and the memory of his drowned brother. A kindly, raffish psychiatrist lends a hand - but fresh tragedy is in the wings. Based on Judith Guest's novel; it won Robert Redford an Oscar on his directorial debut. I found it sincere, well-crafted, affecting - but too pat. The background score, almost inevitably is Pachelbel's "Kanon."

Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie star in this lurid melodrama.
Orphan
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A dysfunctional family adopts a Russian child with suspiciously diabolical eyes. The film is too long, but it’s an above-average entry in the hell-spawn genre. (M.S.)
Orphans

Orphans of the Storm
Released: 1922
Rated:
Now Playing? No
D.W. Griffith's super-romantic tale of the French Revolution, with two sisters - one blind, and both separated at birth - adrift in the hurricane of the "Terror." With those transcendent actresses, the Gish sisters, as the heroines; Joseph Schildkraut as Robespierre - whom the florid subtitles keep describing as "The Great Pussyfooter" - and Monte Blue as heroic Danton, roaring and charging through another of Griffith's patented last minute rescues. Historically, of course, this is all highly dubious - never mind the fact that Griffith's view of the Revolution is as passionately overripe and ideologically confusing as Thomas Carlyle's. But his mastery and virtuosity keep crackling through the film like heat lightning; despite everything, swells and soars and sweeps along and thrills you like the climatic movements of a Beethoven Symphony.

Oscar Nominated Shorts: Animated
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Too many of these are too Pixar-derivative, but the Wallace and Gromit one is delightful.
Oscar Nominated Shorts: Live Action
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
These shorts examine solemn issues like violence, slavery and nuclear, but the best is the comic "Instead of Abracadabra," about a hapless Swedish magician.

Oscar Shorts 2010: Animation
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The animation compilation offers the most highlights of the Oscar shorts programs, including the clever faux instructional film Let’s Pollute and the strangely melancholy The Lost Thing. But you also get Pixar's disappointingly preachy Day & Night and the cute but uninvolving adaptation The Gruffalo. (S.R.)
Oscar Shorts 2010: Documentary
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Oscar-nominated docs include Poster Girl, about an Iraq war vet, and Son Come Up, about the effects of climate change in Papua New Guinea.
Oscar Shorts 2010: Live Action
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
There’s one terrific entry in God of Love, about a lovelorn nightclub singer who’s bestowed with the power of Cupid, and Wish 143, which does a few funny things with its promising premise. The rest range from the tense but overly earnest African genocide tale Na Wewe to two dark-humored but disappointing tales of kids and violence, The Confession and The Crush. (S.R.)

Osmosis Jones takes us on a Fantastic Voyage through the body's nether regions.
OSS 117: Cairo Nest of Spies
Released: 2008
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This hilarious French spy spoof features a sexist, chauvinist, colonialist secret agent who doesn't know the first thing about the world outside his Parisian tailor's shop, and who doesn’t care to learn after arriving in Egypt for a mission. The film deliciously evokes the 1960s with cheesy rear-screen projection, tailored JFK suits and trim Jackie dresses. (B.M.)

Othello
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Basically a transcription of the stage play, but since it preserves Laurence Olivier's powerhouse performance as the jealousy-ridden Moor - a real masterpiece of romantic acting - with a superb supporting cast that includes Frank Finlay (a very blunt, pragmatic and "honest" lago), Maggie Smith and Derek Jacobi, why quibble?
