The Devil's Rejects
Released: 2005
Rated: R

The Diary Of Anne Frank
Released: 1959
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of the most devastating documents of the Holocaust; the dairy of a teenage Jewish girl, forced - with her family and friends - to hide in a small Amsterdam attic. Powerful, searing, compassionate ... It just misses the spiritual and emotional majesty it so obviously tries for. (M.W.)
The Dictator
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A reviled North African despot (Sacha Baron Cohen) wanders the wilds of New York in a comedy that's more conventional than Cohen's anarchic Borat. Characteristically, Cohen refuses to find anything sacred, and it's hard to resist the film's goofy brilliance. (S.R.)
The Died With Their Boots On
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
If you can overlook the historical absurdities - in this movie, Custer loves Indians and rides into the Little Big Horn as a protest against the mistreatment - this is one of the lustiest and most arousing of all the cavalry epics, and an interesting companion piece to Arthur Penn's Little Big Man.
The Dilemma
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Two couples lead a seemingly charmed life until one man (Kevin James) sees the wife (Winona Ryder) of his best friend (Vince Vaughn) with someone else. Ron Howard's surprisingly honest comedy-melodrama is considerably more than what it appears to be. (M.S.)
The Dinner Game
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Dion Brothers
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jocular crime in the American Southeast (Burt Reynolds territory). (M.W.)
The Disappearance of Aimee 1976
Released: 0000
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Aimee Semple McPherson, the vanishing evangelist, lives again courtesy of a high-octane cast and Katie Hepburn's current favorite director, Anthony Harvey (The Lion In Winter, The Glass Menagerie).
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.)
The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie
Released: 1972
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Disenchanted Forest

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Released: 2007
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 Divorce Of Lady X
Released: 1938
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Innocent reality and illicit appearances as a barrister is named correspondent in a sensational divorce. Imitation Noel Coward - with a topflight cast. (M.W.)
The Docks of New York
Released: 1928
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A steamship stoker falls for a dance hall girl in Joseph von Sternberg's silent classic.
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.
The Door in the Floor

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Jeff Bridges plays a beloved childrenâ??s writer who has gone to seed
The Doors
Released: 1991

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 Drop
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? Yes
When a bartender (Tom Hardy) is robbed, a righteous Catholic detective (John Ortiz) shows up to investigate. The film falls just shy of genuine neo-noir nastiness, but the performances are strong, particularly James Gandolfini as the bar’s Mob-plagued owner. (M.S.)
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
