The title of this well-made documentary comes from Henry Kissinger's assessment of former defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg, who in 1971 leaked Pentagon documents revealing the lies undergirding the war in Vietnam. Ellsberg's action was heroic; it was also the right thing to do. (B.L.)

The Muppets
Released: 2011
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No

Rated:

A very chi-chi adaptation of the Poe Thriller, complete with mad scientists, murderous apes and echoes of the 1920s Parisian avant-garde. It has some odd period charm. (M.W.)

Simmons, Cara Seymour) turns up mentally impaired, and a therapist (Julia Ormond) discovers that the 1960s music of his youth snaps him into lucidity. Based on an Oliver Sacks essay, this film has poignant, funny things to say about music's strange power. (K.B.)

The Naked and the Dead
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Norman Mailer's existential war novel done in Raoul Walsh's muscle-flexing Objective Burma style. Needless to say, a mismatch which pleased neither writer nor director. "When Warner Brothers and the censors got through with this, Walsh moaned, "they took out all the Naked and just left the Dead!"
The Naked City
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A model police-procedural thriller using a citywide manhunt for a B-girl's killer as the framework for a neo-realists study of '40s Manhattan flavored with little discreet Marzism. (Or perhaps not so discreet: both director Jules Dassin and writer Albert Maltz were on the blacklist within two years.) Terse, evocative; the location cinematography by William Daniels (an MGM wheelhorse, and Garbo's most frequent cameraman) is noteworthy.
The Naked Dawn
Released: 1955
Rated: NR
Now Playing? Yes
In this cult favorite, director Edgar Ulmer takes a crack at the Western genre, casting Arthur Kennedy as a drifter who convinces a poor farmer (Eugene Iglesias) to participate in a train robbery.
