A black prizefighter wrongly convicted of murdering three white people in a bar.
The Hurt Locker
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An elite bomb-dismantling squad winds down a tour of duty in Iraq. The film mostly restricts its focus to dramatizing the dirty work of a war zone, and that it does brilliantly. (K.J.)
The Hustler
Released: 1961
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Ice Harvest
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Iceman
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A pornographic film-lab worker (Michael Shannon) evolves into a cold-blooded hit man yet manages to keep his professional identity a secret from his wife (Winona Ryder). There’s some wonderful acting and cinematography in this steamy, atmospheric film, but the plot is trite at best. (L.B.)
The Ides of March
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A presidential candidate (George Clooney) faces a crucial primary, and his calculating media consultant (Ryan Gosling) attends to the details. The film moves fast enough to avoid losing viewers in wonky chatter, but it's unclear what's at stake besides a cynical look at the petty dramas that could help determine who we choose as our leader. (S.R.)
The Illusionist
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this sad animated film based on a Jacques Tati script, a down-on-his-luck Parisian magician travels to Scotland, where he befriends a young woman. Pleasant enough, but I'd rather watch a real Tati film. (K.B.)
The Illusionist (2006)
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Edward Norton stars as a magician who, because of his apparent supernatural powers, becomes a threat to the Hapsburg empire in fin-de-siÚcle Vienna. The movie's a love triangle that's supposed to stir our passions, but it doesn't quite get the job done, partly because Norton lacks hypnotic appeal. (K.W.)

The Illustrated Man
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The tattooed man whose illustrations come to deadly life; based, with intermittent success, on the short stories of Ray Bradbury. (M.W.)
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A shambling old mystic (Christopher Plummer) is joined by a dashing mystery man (Heath Ledger) in a struggle for souls with the devil (Tom Waits). Director Terry Gilliam's design is typically dazzling, his storytelling typically chaotic. (K.B.)
The Immigrant
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A man claiming to work for an immigrant aid society (Joaquin Phoenix) tries to push a young Polish woman (Marion Cotillard) into burlesque dancing and prostitution in 1920s New York. Cotillard is devastating in the title role, and Phoenix slowly transforms a monster of a character into a man. (K.J.)
The Importance of Being Earnest
Released: 2002
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Oliver Parker's movie adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play is a veritable disaster
The Impossible
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A vacationing couple (Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor) and their three sons get separated when a tsunami strikes Thailand. The film's first hour is viscerally enthralling, and Tom Holland is terrific as a child weighing the risks and rewards of helping someone else when his own survival is in question. (S.R.)
The Imposter
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Frédéric Bourdin, a 34-year-old Frenchman, convinces a Texas family he's their missing teenage son. Documentarian Bart Layton creates the wrong tone by using reenactments to tell this tragic story. (K.B.)
The Impostors

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A cutting-edge illusionist (Jim Carrey) drives a wedge between two friends turned superstar magicians (Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi). There are several on-target gags during the first hour of this comedy, before it morphs into an unsatisfying redemption story. (S.R.)
The Incredible Hulk
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This screen version of the Marvel comic is vastly more entertaining than the last one, thanks to Edward Norton’s performance as the scientist who tries to repress the beast within. The film never stops moving, and suddenly the Hulk feels really, truly incredible. (M.S.)
The incredible Two-Headed Transplant
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Reckless of the consequences, a mad scientist unwisely grafts the head of a homicidal maniac onto the body of an idiot. If you ever want to thoroughly enrage Bruce Dern, just walk up to him and remark, "Say weren't you in The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant?" He'll probably deck you.
The Incredibles

The Infidel
Released: 2010
Rated: NR

The Informant!
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Matt Damon turns in a solid performance as a scientist who blows the whistle on price-fixing in international agribusiness. The film represents director Steven Soderbergh’s return to audience-friendly fare after recent forays into theoretical filmmaking. (M.B.)
The Informer
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Fog covers Dublin like a graveyard shroud, and in that black, pitiless night - that night punctuated by screams, gunfire and drunken revelry - walks a great brute of a man named Gypo Nolan. Around him is pitched warfare between the IRA and the Black-and-Tans, but to Gypo, only two things matter: his dream of passion and the gold in his pocket. This is the film that made John Ford's reputation and won his first Oscar. Based on the powerful novel by Liam O'Flaherty, it is a raw, emotional, expressionistic look at loyalty, cowardice, revolution and death. It is slightly crippled - just as Gypo is - by sentimentality, but at its best, it makes you feel the anguish of betrayal, the agony of the hunted, and the pain and beauty of redemption.
