The Leopard
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A sumptuous adaptation of Guiseppe de Lampedusa's great novel: a study of the decaying fortunes of a family of Sicilian aristocrats. No one is better at this kind of subject than Luchino Visconti - an aristocrat himself, a Marxist, and the possessor of the kind of full blown operatic sensibility that seems to belong to a vanished epoch.
The Leopard
Released: 1963
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No

The Liberation of Lord Byron Jones
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
William Wyler's last film: a dark, pessimistic study of racial relations in the South, with an extremely bitter climax. Like all Wyler's work, well-cast, handsomely mounted, smoothly done with the polish of the technique reflecting oddly on the despairing subject.
The Libertine
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Lieutenant Wore Skirts
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A crazed couple pursue each other through the WAC's. Jean-Luc Godard says of it: "No comedy could be more devastating, more bitter in its humor, more brackish...with the uneasy spectator seized in a pitiless mesh of imbecility's and ending by roaring with laughter because it isn't funny at all." Amen.
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
Released: 1943
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Writer-directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger recount the career arc of a military man who can't get behind the modern concept of warfare.
The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg
Released:
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Engaging offbeat, gaudily exaggerated fantasy - taking off from the character Walter Brennan created for "The Westerner": Judge Roy Bean, "The Law West of the Pecos." Bean is no longer a charming villain - as Brennan made him - but an anarchistic, anti-technological saint. The thesis may be a little far out, but the movie is fun. (M.W.)
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Released: 2004
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Bill Murray and Owen Wilson star in Wes Anderson's latest giddy spectacle
The Life Before Her Eyes
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Uma Thurman suffers from survivor’s guilt after having lived through a Columbine-like rampage as a teenager. She and Evan Rachel Wood (as her high school self) give strong performances, but the film feels pat and contrived. (M.B.)
The Life of David Gale
Released: 2003
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Kevin Space is a death-row inmate telling his tale
The Life of Emile Zola
Released: 1937
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Dreyfus Affair, in which the French officer class, anxious to protect one of their own by falsely convicting a young Jewish captain of espionage, ran up against truth and justice (which didn't bother them) and an aging novelist named Emile Zola (who did). The most passionate of all the Muni-Dieterle social-historical dramas; it can still make your blood rush with anger.
The Life of Oharu
Released: 1952
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Japanese director Kenji Mizoguchi’s 1952 film traces the fall of a court woman who loves someone below her class.
The Life of Reilly
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This moving documentary suggests that there was more than met the eye to Charles Nelson Reilly, the TV-game-show personality who screamed so loudly from the closet that he might as well have gone ahead and come out. We learn about his traumatic childhood and a distinguished career that might have been even more distinguished if Reilly had arrived on the scene after Will and Grace. (K.W.)
The Lifestyle
Released: 1999
Rated: NR

The Limey

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Lincoln Lawyer
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this effective legal thriller, Matthew McConaughey plays a cynical defense attorney in unfamiliar territory with a client (Ryan Phillippe) who may actually be innocent. McConaughey is one-dimensional, but a terrific supporting cast (William H. Macy, Marisa Tomei, Bryan Cranston) keeps the energy level popping. (S.R.)
The Lion King
Released: 1994
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Disney's 1994 animated smash is back, this time with depth.
The Lion King 3D
Released: 1994
Rated: G

Disney's 1994 blockbuster is back, this time with depth.
The List Of Adrian Messenger
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Intricate, literate murder mystery based on the Phillip MacDonald thriller, with an urbane sleuth trying to crack the riddle of serial murders among a group of old acquaintances in England and Ireland. Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum, Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas - in an inside gimmick - all appear as extravagantly disguised guest stars. Low-pressure Huston, but amusing. (M.W.)
The Little Foxes
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Powerful study of a Southern family devouring each other in their pursuit of wealth and status. It's a great melodrama, and Bette Davis is a magnificent Regina Giddens.
The Little Giant
Released: 1933
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A Chicago bootlegger (Edward G. Robinson) goes west after Prohibition and mixes with the horsy set. (TMS)
The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jodie Foster is menaced by a crazed child-molester. At least John Hinckley may enjoy it. (M.W.)
