MovieDescription
Svengali
Released: 1931
Rated:
Now Playing? No
George DuMaurier's classic of artistic obsession, tyranny and mad love turned into a wild, scenery-chewing showcase for Barrymore. The bizarre, skewed Anton Grot sets almost upstage him.
Swades: We, the People
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A NASA scientist returns to India in this Bollywood film.
Swamp Water
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An unfairly neglected American masterpiece. Renoir made it only two years after The Rules of The Game; Swamp Water came out the same year as Citizen Kane, and in some ways, it's just as much of an esthetic milestone. The lyrical evocation of primitivism among the rural "poor whites" of the South has the simplicity and charm of a folk ballad.
Swansong: Story of Occi Byrne
Released: 2009
Rated: NR

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Tim Burton's blood-splattered adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical, Johnny Depp plays the vengeful barber who delivers especially close shaves, and Helena Bonham Carter the amoral baker who detects a solution to her meat-shortage problem. The singing throughout may be okay at best, but Burton has created a gothic melodrama that's both rich and mysterious. (K.W.)

Sweet Charity
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Fellini's Nights of Cabiria, Broadway- musicalized by Neil Simon, Fields & Coleman, with Shirley MacLaine in perhaps her ultimate "hooker" role, following in the tawdry-poignant, aching heel footsteps of Guilleta Masina. This was the first feature Bob Fosse directed and though he's gone a bit '60s wild with the camera and cutting, every musical number is a knockout. (Indeed the choreography on "Hey Big Spender" is as good as he's ever done.) Sweet Charity flopped, but its possible in some ways to prefer it to Fosse's second movie, Cabaret. I do, and not just because of Shirley, who, admittedly, pushes a bit hard.
Sweet Home Alabama

Sweet Land
Released: 2005
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Regional filmmaking at its best, Ali Selimâ??s love story is about a German mail-order bride (Elizabeth Reaser) who has trouble assimilating into a southern Minnesota farming community after World War I. Selim transports us to a time when love, like that yearâ??s crop, took time to germinate. (K.W.)
Sweet Mud
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Sweet November
Released: 2001
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Reeves gives a bona fide performance.
Sweet Smell of Success
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An extraordinarily bitter vicious look at the world of Broadway gossip columnists, as a scabrous little tipster named Sidney Falso scurries around on the errands of columnist J.J. Hunseker. Hunseker is a barbed portrait of Walter Winchell and this movie is as rough and honest as a '50s Hollywood product ever got.
Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song
Released: 1971
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Sweetgrass
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This documentary about sheep and their herders in Montana blends scenes of breathtaking beauty (a field of sheep amid light falling snow) and casual brutality (the animals are brusquely sheared, their newborns harshly tossed). Completely shears away the romance of sheep ranching, and exposes the humans as the most miserable creatures it depicts. (B.L.)

Swing Vote
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Thanks to an electronic voting-machine glitch, presidential candidates (Kelsey Grammer, Dennis Hopper) bring their campaigns to the only voter who now matters, an affable New Mexico drunk (Kevin Costner). Costner easily plays the ne'er-do-well, but the character and the film never develop any forward momentum. (M.B.)
Sword of Sherwood Forest
Released: 1961
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Merry men foil dastardly plot against the Archbishop of Canterbury. A continuation of the '50s British TV series, which was a haven for blacklisted (and pseudonymous) American screenwriters.
Sword of the Stranger
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Animated pic about a reluctant samurai.
Swordfish
Released: 2001
Rated: R

Sydney White
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This update of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs follows a college outcast (Amanda Bynes) who battles a mean sorority queen and wins the heart of the campus prince. The dwarf stand-ins—-seven nerds—-are entertaining, but they can’t distract from the watered-down script and cringe-worthy love story. (T.B.)
Sylvia
Released: 2003
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Sylvia Scarlett
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An unclassifiable little jeu d'esprit about a family of con men and swindlers, and the games of artifice and love they play with the British bourgeoisie. Hepburn spends much of the film disguised as a boy; when Brian Aherne, as a artist-roue, begins falling in love with her, he rolls his eyes and remarks: "Something very queer is going on here." Very wittily written by John Collier: if it resembles anything at all, it resembles classic French farce or the comedia dell'arte, magically updated.

Synecdoche, New York
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this deeply dark comedy, Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a theater director who tries to create a work of art that will encompass his whole sorry life, including the fact that he's trying to create a work of art that will encompass his whole sorry life, and the result is one of those Moëbius-strip narratives that writer and now director Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich) is famous for. The movie's quite convoluted and amazingly discouraging about the ability of art to lift our spirits, but it’s also brilliant and strangely moving, especially if you've ever laid in bed late at night and wondered whether life’s worth living. (K.W.)
