MovieDescription
The Loneliest Planet
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An incident on the trail tests two lovers' (Gael García Bernal, Hani Furstenberg) relationship as they take a guided hiking tour through the Caucasus Mountains. (TMS)
The Long Day Closes
Released: 1992
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A shy youngster copes with the pressures of school and home life in 1950s Britain via the local movie theater. (TMS)
The Long Good-bye
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A peculiar, off-color but richly imaginative and quirky adaptation of one of Raymond Chandler's Phillip Marlowe novels. The time has been updated to 1973; and Marlowe - portrayed by Elliot Gould as a sort of scruffy Jewish na�¯f and pseudo-hipster - has become almost totally anachronistic. The screenplay, by Leigh Brackett, who also adapted, "The Big Sleep" for Howard Hawks, is faithful to the book - in its fashion - but Altman adroitly sketches in the sunny, fumey, blitzed-out world of modern Southern California, a place whose crackpot ambiance Chandler could only have guessed at around the edges. "The Long Good-bye" is both very funny, and a film of incongruous power and strange beauty. Altman, when undertaking the project, may have set out to destroy the youth of the Private Eye; actually he produced one of Hollywood's best private eye movies.
The Long Gray Line
Released: 1955
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The 50-year career of West Point athletic trainer Marty Maher. There are some places where it is difficult to follow John Ford - and one is the arena of militaristic sentimentality he opens up here. (M.W.)
The Long Riders
Released: 1980
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A downbeat, macho, violent Western in the Sam Peckinpah vein, in which Walter Hill (and star scenarist James Keach) try an intriguing and mostly successful stunt: The Keach Brothers (James and Stacy) play the James Brothers, the three Carradine's play the Youngers, the Quaids play the Millers, and the Guests play the Fords. The movie is good, though one wishes Peckinpah himself had done it.
The Long Way Home

Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Long, Hot Summer
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Rather outrageously adapted from William Faulkner's The Hamlet, but, however compromised, it's a salty, racy, entertaining story with a great cast, and in the ashes of Newman's barn-burning Ben, one can see his later Hud Bannon.
The Longest Day
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Darryl Zanuck restages D-Day, and the invasion of Normandy - possibly at greater expertise then the original. (M.W.)
The Longest Nite
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Longest Yard
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The cons vs. the guards in a slam-bang prison football game, with Eddie Albert as a scurrilous warden with an uncanny resemblance to Nelson Rockefeller. A real rouser, and the best of all the Burt Reynolds vehicles; if it doesn't get your blood pumping, nothing will.
The Longshots
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A former high school star (Ice Cube) cultivates the football talent of his niece (Keke Palmer). Director Fred Durst isn’t half bad at making movies -- there is maturity and restraint I didn’t think the mind behind rap-metal anthem "Nookie" was capable of. (J.R.)
The Lookout
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This pleasantly low-key, offbeat thriller stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a brain-damaged young man who gets lured into a small-town bank heist, and writer-director Scott Frank uses the short-term memory problems to play around with the narrative. Within its modest parameters, the movie packs a nice little punch. (K.W.)
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King: Extended Edition Event
Released: 2011
Rated: NR

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: Extended Edition Event

The Lords Of Discipline
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Secret codes and mental warfare at a Southern military academy; End As A Man-style expose from the director of the excellent Quadrophenia. (M.W.)
The Lords of Salem
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A radio DJ (Sheri Moon Zombie) in Salem, Mass., is plagued by nightmarish visions of vengeful witches after she plays a record by a mysterious group known only as (TMS)
The Losers
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Highly skilled U.S. military operatives try to clear their names after being set up for a crime they didn’t commit. Energetic performances from Jason Patric and Chris Evans help distract from the generic action nonsense. (S.R.)
The Loss of Sexual Innocence
Released: 1999
Rated: R

The Lost Boys

The Lost City
Released: 2005

The Lost Film Fest
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Lost Man
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Carol Reed's Odd Man Out updated to the urban black "revolution" of the '60s; good only fitfully.
The Lost One
Released: 1951
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Peter Lorre wrote and directed this 1951 film about a Nazi scientist.
The Lost Patrol
Released: 1934
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A British patrol in the Mesopotamian desert, cut off from their regiment surrounded by scorching sands - and by a ring of unseen Arab ambushers, who are killing them off one by one. A great "last stand" movie, and a perfect illustration of John Ford's most habitual plot device: "the situation...the tragic moment (which) forces men to reveal themselves, to become aware of what they truly are..."
The Lost Weekend
Released: 1945
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An alcoholic writer, his weekend binge, his steady descent into degradation and terror. Full of cruelly exact observations of the seedy edges of the city, it denizens, and the drunkard's desperate stratagems to stay afloat and stoned.
The Lottery
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Love Bug
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Robert Stevenson isn't a name most of you will immediately recall; but, in fact, he is the most consistently popular director in the history of movies, as a quick look at Variety's all-time box-office list will immediately show. All Stevenson's "winners" were made under the aegis of Walt Disney Studios and The Love Bug, with its winsome, anthropomorphic little Volkswagen, Herbie, is the second biggest grosser in his oeuvre.
The Love Guru
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
There are some funny ideas at play in this Bollywood-style comedy, in which Mike Myers plays a guru-to-the-stars whose main goal in life is to become bigger than Deepak Chopra. But it’s hard to get a bead on the character, and the movie never gets any traction. (K.W.)
