The Disappearance of Alice Creed
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This English film about a kidnapping gone awry is a beautiful piece of ghastliness. Director J. Blakeson has crafted a genre masterpiece that ratchets up the emotional suspense to mind-frying proportions. (M.S.)

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Julian Schnabel charmingly adapts the 1997 memoir by Jean-Dominique Bauby, the French Elle editor who, as a result of a massive stroke, was left paralyzed from head to toe. Using only his left eyelid, Bauby managed to make contact with the outside world, and thanks to the daring cinematic techniques Schnabel employs, his book has been lovingly, beautifully translated to the screen. (K.W.)

The Domino Principle
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Stanley Kramer tries a full-blown '70s style anti-CIA paranoid thriller (with Gene Hackman as an Archie Bunker-style hit man) and comes up with something closer to a neurotic snoozer.

Reviewed this issue.
The Double Hour
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A hotel chambermaid and an ex-cop begin dating at the promising beginning of this Italian romantic thriller, and then supernatural stuff starts happening after a violent heist. But halfway through, there's a storytelling switcheroo that negates much of what has happened and more or less demolishes the film. (K.B.)
The Dream Catcher
Released: 1999
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Dreamers
Released: 2003
Rated: NC-17
Now Playing? No
Bernardo Bertolucci's film is for cinephiles, about cinephiles and by cinephiles
The Dreamlife of Angels
Released: 1998
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Dresser
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The volatile, symbolic relationship between an aging, raging Shakespearean ham (modeled on Sit Donald Wolfit) and his fussy, epicene dresser as they tour the British provincial theaters in wartime. Adapted by Ronald Harwood from his play, this is a real actors' showcase. It's admired by many, but I find the acting of both Courtenay (re-creating his stage role) and Finney a little forced. (It's a pity that, for whatever reason, Laurence Olivier didn''t play Sir.)
The Driver
Released: 1978
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
All action, little talk in an "existential parable" about a superb getaway driver pitted against a ruthless cop who wants nothing more than to bring the "cowboy desperado" to heel. The chase scenes are exciting; but the terse, "Hemingwayesque" dialogue verges on self-parody.(M.W.)
The Duchess
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this incredibly opulent costume/historical drama, Keira Knightley stars as Georgiana Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire, who ruled over late-18th-century English social life with her wit, charm, beauty and sense of fashion but was treated like a glorified sperm receptacle by her dullard of a husband (Ralph Fiennes). That’s certainly a paradox worth building a movie around, but The Duchess is only partially successful at doing so, reducing this most accomplished and complex woman to a long-suffering martyr. (K.W.)
The Dukes of Hazzard
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Dull Ice Flower
Released: 1989
Rated: NR

Robbie, a 14-year-old, dreams of having a stable family as his falls apart. (TMS)
The Eagle
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A Roman general (Channing Tatum) arrives in Caledonia to solve the mystery of his father, who commanded a legion of centurions who disappeared there along with their totemic medal eagle. Not much vitality in this old-fashioned boys' adventure tale. (M.B.)
The Eagle Has Landed
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
John Sturges does what almost seems a weird variation on his best movie, The Great Escape. This time a group of Nazi commandos are trying to break into Britain, to kidnap Churchill. Exciting, in a vacuous, boy's-adventure way.
The Earrings of Madame de...
Released: 1953
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Max Ophuls’ 1953 classic finds a general’s wife selling the earrings he gave her to pay off gambling debts.
The East
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
While working to infiltrate an ecoterrorism cell, an undercover agent (Brit Marling) wins over the leader (Alexander Skarsgård) but makes another member (Ellen Page) suspicious. The cinematography looks sharp, but the radical characters seem interchangeable. (M.B.)
