MovieDescription
Same Time, Next Year
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An extramarital affair, which lasts only one weekend out of every year but endures for a quarter-century; an obvious theater piece, done with great warmth and skill. (M.W.)
Samsara
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Two filmmakers travel the globe, recording serene settings (sacred places, natural wonders) and chaotic ones (disaster zones, industrial wastelands). This movie lacks substance but would make a stunning screensaver. (M.B.)
Samson and Delilah
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The biblical perils of amateur hairstyling. This was the first movie ever seen by your reviewer, and at the age of five he was quite impressed. (M.W.)
Sanctuary of Fear
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hapless pilot for a proposed TV series based on Chesterton's amiable but steely-eyed priestly sleuth. Father Brown.
Sanctum
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
James Cameron produced this messy, atrociously written and unevenly acted subterranean adventure, in which spelunkers rappel into a huge cave in Papua New Guinea, then become trapped by storm runoff. It's no Abyss. (M.S.)
Sanctum 3D

Rated: R

Sands of Iwo Jima
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
In the Korean War, "to John Wayne it" was G.I. slang for displays of gung-ho macho, based on Duke's stateside war movies. Sands Of Iwo Jima and The Fighting Seabees are the only good ones.
Sansho the Bailiff
Released: 1954
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In Japanese director Kenji Mizoguchi’s 1954 masterpiece, a family falls apart after the father is exiled by a cruel governor.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Santa Fe Trail
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Rabid Pro-Dixie propaganda by Southerner Robert Buckner submerged in another Flynn-Curtiz swashbuckler as the dashing Jeb Stuart and the dashing George Custer (Ronald Reagan, no less) save the Southland from the crazed John Brown. (M.W.)
Sarah and Son
Released: 1930
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour

A teenager finds evil spirits in a small town.
Sarah's Key
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Two stories from different eras intertwine: one about a girl (Mélusine Mayance) during the Holocaust, the other about a journalist (Kristin Scott Thomas) in modern-day Paris confronting family and professional problems. This difficult balancing act works, thanks to the intelligent, subtle and fully believable performances by Mayance and Thomas. (M.B.)

Sargasso! A Caribbean Love Story
Released: 1990
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Saskatchewan
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Good Western with a Canadian background. Probably as an inside joke, Alan Ladd's Mountie is named "Salty O'Rourke," after the racetrack gambler he played in a 1945 Walsh comedy.
Satan Never Sleeps
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
At the end of his career, comedy genius Leo McCarey became stridently anti-Communist. My Son John was one strange result; here is another, happy-go-lucky priests battling the Chinese Reds. (M.W.)
Satantango
Released: 1994
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Béla Tarrâ??s seven-hour film from 1994 portrays villagers in post-Communist Hungary who wait for the Messiah.
Satin Rouge
Released: 2002
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Arthur, a rebellious, young lathe operator and amateur Don Juan, takes us on a hair-raising weekend bender through the seedier sights of industrial Nottingham. Brilliantly adapted by Karel Reisz (his festure debut) and Alan Sillitoe from Sillitoe's novel; this was the archetypical film - and the best - of Britain's proletarian "New Wave" of the early '60s. Surging with life, energy and an undertone of nearly psychotic anarchy.
Saturday Night Fever
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Saturday Night Fever
Released: 1977
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The 1977 film starring John Travolta as a competitive disco dancer.
Sauve qui peut (la vie)
Released: 1980
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Jean-Luc Godard's film entwines the story of a prostitute and a couple breaking up.
Savage Grace
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
You can almost smell the desperation in the twisted psychosexuality of this film, purportedly based on the true story of a mother-son relationship that went tragically wrong. Julianne Moore seems stumped in her performance as the manipulative but unstable mom; you get the impression she’s grappling to make some sense of a situation that seemingly defies rational explanation. (S.D.)
Savages
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Oliver Stone’s dizzying crime thriller, California marijuana farmers (Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively) go to war against a Mexican cartel demanding a piece of the action. The young leads are less than scintillating, but Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek and John Travolta offer spectacularly outrageous turns. (M.B.)
Save the Last Dance
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Save The Tiger
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
This script about a harrowing day in the life of a middle-aged garment manufacturer, keeps veering between honest sentiment and maudlin bathos - but Lemmon, who acts his guts out, keeps it on an even keel. (M.W.)
Saved!
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A rather standard teen flick set in the wacky world of evangelical Christianity
Saving Face
Released: 2004
Rated: R
