MovieDescription
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.)
The Love Letter
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Lovely Bones
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A 14-year-old girl (Saoirse Ronan) is murdered by a serial killer, and her corporeal presence lingers in the in-between world, observing her family. Director Peter Jackson devotes all his energies to the altera-world images -- the performances fail to connect. (M.B.)
The Lover
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Loves of Carmen
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The stars and director of 1946's minor classic maudit, Gilda, reunite for a go at Bizet's Carmen - minus the music. It can't be as bad as it sounds.
The Lucky One
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
After a Marine (Zac Efron) in Iraq finds a photograph of a gorgeous girl (Taylor Schilling), he locates her in her peaceful Louisiana parish. The cast is fine, but the movie is ploddingly predictable. (M.S.)
The Lucky Ones
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Just arrived in New York from Iraq, three soldiers (Rachel McAdams, Tim Robbins, Michael Peña) rent a car and head west. In many ways this is a universal story about rudderless Americans, not just these particular veterans, yet the story contains too many coincidences and convergences to wholly ring true. (M.B.)
The Lunchbox
Released: 2013
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
An Indian woman (Nimrat Kaur) eager to spice up her marriage prepares a special lunch for her husband, which is mistakenly delivered to his lonely coworker (Irrfan Khan). Unlike Bollywood’s masala movies packed with singing, dancing, action, romance and comedy, this film offers an appealing naturalistic glimpse of middle-class life in modern Mumbai. (M.B.)
The Lusty Men
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of Nick Ray's best. A moody "triangle drama" with a poetically observed, richly detailed rodeo background. The participants: a failing champ, his nervy prot�©g�©e and the new rider's gutsy wife.
The Luzhin Defence
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
John Turturroâ??s Alexander Luzhin is like Harpo Marx...without the laughs.
The Machinist
Released: 2004
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Macomber Affair
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Deadly triangle on an African safari, a white hunter, a a rich weakling and his bitchy wife. Based on Hemingway's "The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber," some observers consider it the screen's most successful attempt.
The Mad Magician
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Horrific Houdini cavorts cruelly and gets just comeuppance. (M.W.)
The Magdalene Sisters
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Maggie
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Spry little seagoing comedy by the director of Sweet Smell Of Success and The Ladykillers. (M.W.)
The Magic Christian
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Constantly surprising audacious satire adapted from Terry Southern's acerbic portrait of Guy Grand and his adopted son, Youngman, who set out to prove through a series of elaborate practical ????is every bit as avaricious depraved and idiotic as we've always thought. Some of the movie's gags are by Chapman and Cleese of Monty Python.
The Magificent Andersons
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Magnificent Ambersons
Released: 1942
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Magnificent Matador
Released: 1955
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ex-toreador Budd Boetticher casts a cool eye and a crisp cape at the world of the bullring. The script is formula; the handling, for aficionados. (M.W.)
The Maid
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
An intriguing psychological study about a sullen, middle-aged maid who sabotages a family’s efforts to hire additional help. Catalina Saavedra renders the title character thoroughly human. (M.B.)
The Maids
Released: 1975
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jean Genet's play, based on fact, about two maids who descend into perversity and madness, and slaughter their employer. An American Film Theater production - and not to be confused with the French adaptation which moved Sartre to such rapture.
The Main Event
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An attempt to rekindle the fire of What's Up, Doc?, with its screwball pairing and magic. The Main Event has only a sporadic glitter: A luckless boxer and his lady boss fall in love amid much mugging and shrieking.
The Majestic
Released: 2001
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Mom-and-apple-pie are played straight in The Majestic
The Makioka Sisters
Released: 1983
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The once-prominent Makioka family undergoes a decline over the years, partially as a result of the Allied Occupation during the '40s. But no matter what fortune has in store, the four sisters always gather in Kyoto, Japan, to view the cherry blossoms, the ritual marking the changes in their lives from year to year. Right now the major crisis for them is finding a husband for Yukiko (Sayuri Yoshinaga), the third eldest, so that the youngest sibling, Taeko (Yûko Kotegawa), can get married herself. (TMS)
