MovieDescription
The Quiet Ones
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In 1970s England, a professor (Jared Harris) performs an experiment on a young woman who may be possessed by demons (Olivia Cooke). Director John Pogue favors old-fashioned spookiness over blood and guts, which is refreshing in an era of excessive onscreen gore. (M.J.)
The Quillar Memorandum
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Top drawer spy thriller, from a moody, enigmatic Harold Pinter scenario. (M.W.)
The Race to Save 100 Years
Released: 1998

The Raid 2
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this Indonesian thriller, a policeman (Iko Uwais) goes undercover to break up a crime syndicate and end corruption in his own organization.
The Raid: Redemption
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Jakarta, Indonesia, cops raid a decrepit apartment building controlled by a drug boss and his minions. The martial-arts fighting is dazzling and inventive, but the film is light on plot and takes itself too seriously. (K.B.)
The Railway Man
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A former soldier (Colin Firth) decides to confront the man responsible for torturing him during World War II. Screenwriters Andy Paterson and Frank Cottrell Boyce adeptly shift the action back and forth between two engrossing storylines, one about the veteran's struggle with PTSD and another about his burgeoning love affair with a stranger (Nicole Kidman). (K.J.)
The Rape of Europa
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This documentary chronicles Adolf Hitler’s attempt to steal or destroy every work of art in his path, then build a citywide shrine to German culture and, of course, himself. This thoroughly researched film neatly catalogues the industrial-scale plundering, and it makes for an amazing story. (K.W.)
The Rare Breed
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jimmy Stewart, in a sort of rocking-chair Western, sings a little bull. (The bull is a prizewinner; the film isn't).
The Rat Race
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Making it - in several senses of the word - in NYC. (M.W.)
The Raven
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The best of all Roger Corman's Edgar Allen Poe adaptations - and the one that owes the least to its original source. A fantastic parody about haunted castles, black magic, and dueling sorcerers.
The Raven
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Baltimore's favorite son gets a revisionist makeover in this frankly dull and frequently off-putting Sherlock Holmes-ian take on the final days of Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, an awful casting choice). It's a mishmash of serial killings based on Poe stories. (M.S.)
The Reader
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Based on Bernhard Schlink’s Oprah-endorsed novel, The Reader wrestles with the notion of Germany’s guilt and responsibility for its war atrocities, and although things doesn’t quite add up, the movie’s beautifully rendered and features wonderful performances by Kate Winslet and David Kross, not to mention a movie-stealing cameo by Lena Olin. Kross is a 15-year-old kid who has an affair with a woman (Winslet) twice his age, only to discover, several years later, that she’d been a guard at Auschwitz. (K.W.)
The Real Cancun
Released: 2003
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A Girls Gone Wild video as cultural anthropology
The Real Dirt on Farmer John
Released: 2005
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Real Glory
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Guts and glory - racy, if not too real - in the Philippines. (M.W.)
The Real Neighborhood

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Real World of New Zealand with Rick Howard
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Reaping
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Hilary Swank plays a biologist who investigates what appear to be a series of biblical plagues in the Louisiana bayou. Swank once again distinguishes herself as a beacon of authenticity, but the script is full of pointless back story and convoluted flashbacks. (M.I.)
The Rebellion
Released: 1993
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Michael Haneke's tale of a veteran returning to post-World War I Vienna.
The Reckless Moment
Released: 1949
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Max Ophuls’ excellent 1949 melodrama about a woman who discovers the dead body of her daughter's lover. (M.W.)
The Reckoning
Released: 2004
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Record of a Tenement Gentleman
Released: 1947
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Recruit
Released: 2003
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Al Pacino and Colin Farrell star in this game of cat-and-mouse in which neither the cat nor the mouse seems to know who's who
The Red & the White

Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Red Badge of Courage
Released: 1951
Rated:
Now Playing? No
John Huston's excellent (but ruinously cut) adaptation of Stephen Cranes' classic account of cowardice and redemption during the Civil War. The casting of Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of W.W.II, as the "coward" was a intentional irony, but the movie is historically significant for other reasons. It was the subject of Lillian Ross' famous book of reportage. Picture and its production stimulated a furious battle at MGM, which finally resulted in the ouster of Louis B. Mayer as studio head. (For that alone, all true movie lovers will remain in Badge's debt forever.)
The Red Balloon
Released: 1955
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A superb children's film by Albert Lamorisse that wistfully centers on the dream of flying. It's a simple story about a young boy (Lamorisse's son Pascal) and his balloon, a little bladder of air that seems suddenly conscious, suddenly alive, and that follows him everywhere until the world, jealous and ugly, intervenes. Cinematographer Edmond Sechan's photography of the Parisian streets is truly revelatory - as luminous as Eugene Atget's old daguerreotypes - and the film itself is both sophisticated and naive, childlike and artistically mature. It's Lamorisse's masterpiece, and it's an unalloyed joy.
The Red Balloon/White Mane (Double Feature)
Released: 0000
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Two classic 1950s shorts by France’s Albert Lamorisse. In “The Red Balloon,” a lonely boy befriends a red balloon that seems to have a mind of its own. “White Mane” is about a boy and a wild horse trying to elude a wrangler.
The Red Pony
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Pleasant version of one of John Steinbeck's bucolic parables, about a boy and his horse. The score is an original by Aaron Copland.

Rated: NR
