MovieDescription
The Connection
Released: 1961
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In a cramped and dirty apartment, eight junkies variously goof off, chat and play jazz music while waiting for their heroin connection to show up. They've also struck a deal with documentary filmmaker Jim Dunn (William Redfield) : They'll let him film them provided he pays for their drugs. When the dealer, Cowboy (Carl Lee), arrives, he's suspicious of the filmmaker and his camera, enough so that Dunn considers trying heroin himself to prove he's no narc and to better understand his subjects. (TMS)
The Conqueror Worm
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A genuine oddity; a literate, terrifying, violent period horror thriller heavily influenced by Ingmar Bergman, written and directed by the mysterious prodigy Michael Reeves. Reeves was 24 when he made Witchfinder General, considered his best film. A year later he committed suicide. (M.W.)

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A young Washington, D.C. lawyer (James McIvoy) reluctantly agrees to defend a woman (Robin Wright) implicated in Abraham Lincoln's death, then faces a government effort to convict her, even if she's innocent. Robert Redford's period drama has chilling contemporary resonances. (K.B.)

Director Jon Amiel throws scientific credibility and restraint out the window with this ecological disaster flick
The Corn Is Green
Released: 1945
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Emlyn Williams' chronicle of his Welsh boyhood, an idealized tribute to the teacher who saved him from the mines. Bright moments sunk in a swamp of Irving Rapper direction; I prefer the Cukor-Hepburn remake.
The Corn Is Green
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Emlyn Williams' touching semi-autobiographical tale of a talented lower class Welsh youth, and his determined schoolteacher - refashioned into a valedictory for that most venerable and brilliant of actress-director combinations, Katharine Hepburn and George Cukor. It was Cukor, of course, who was at the helm when Hepburn made her astonishing debut, in 1932's A Bill Of Divorcement. Age cannot wither, nor custom stale, this pair's infinite variety.
The Corporation
Released: 2003
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A documentary asking if the modern corporation is rotten to the core
The Corruptor
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Counselor
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A greedy attorney (Michael Fassbender) faces trouble when he gets tangled in a drug-trafficking operation. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Cormac McCarthy, this is an anti-noir filled with dirty deeds and wonderful cinematography. (M.S.)
The Count of Monte Cristo

Now Playing? No
The Alexandre Duma classic is revived by Waterworld's director
The Counterfeit Traitor

Bill Holden impersonates a Nazi sympathizer for God and Country. Standard W.W.II spy stuff, based on fact. (M.W.)
The Counterfeiters
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The winner of this year's Oscar for Best Foreign Film is about a concentration camp prisoner (Karl Markovics) whom the Nazis tap to make counterfeit currency. It’s a powerful story that emphasizes personal moral choices rather than the horror of the camps. (M.B.)
The Country Bears
Released: 2002
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The Courageous Mr. Penn
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A stiff British look at the colonies they lost. (M.W.)
The Court Jester
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Amiable nitwit is plunged into an Arthurian world of romance, intrigue,swords and sorceries. The best spoof ever made on the Flynn-Fairbanks medieval swashbucklers, which were a little spoofy to begin with. (M.W.)
The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell
Released: 1955
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Otto Preminger celebrates another outsider - this time, the intransigent General who predicted, in vain, America's need for increased air power before World War II. The court martial itself is a rip-snorter.
The Cove
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This marvelously made documentary is a call to action to protect dolphins from mass slaughter. It covertly films a Japanese town’s brutal dolphin hunt, where tens of thousands are slaughtered like roadkill. (M.B.)
The Covenant
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A sleek yet empty picture about four high school seniors who possess supernatural powers and impossibly chiseled stomachs. The Covenant is from the modern blockbuster school of filmmaking, in which second-rate special effects cover for the lack of a credible story. (J.R.)

The Coward and the Holy Man
Released: 1965
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Cowboy And The Lady
Released: 1938
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The credits read "Based on an idea by Leo McCarey and thereby hangs a tale." McCarey, desperate for cash improvises the rather ??? plot of this movie to Sam Goldwyn at one of his story conferences. McCarey was a master raconteur; Goldwyn, entranced, bought the story for $50,000, bailing the director out of his debts. Then, after setting up the entire project, Goldwyn offered him the chance to direct it. McCarey's legendary response "What makes you think I would want to spend my valuable time on a piece of crap like The Cowboy and The Lady? "
The Crazies
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this remake of George Romero's 1973 film, an experimental bio-weapon lands in a rural town’s water supply and infects the residents. It's a solid thriller, though there's precious little here that hasn't been seen countless times before. (M.S.)
The Crazies (1973)
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A small Pennsylvania city is accidentally hit by biological warfare - a chemical that progressively turns the entire population into homicidal maniacs. Ultra-cheapo horror, sick, violent - but George Romero (Night Of The Living Dead) still knows his stuff, and a lot of the movie is genuinely terrifying. (M.W.)
