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 Return
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
After having nightmares of a murder, a woman (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is drawn to the old farmhouse where it occurred. The film is confusing and occasionally hokey, but itâ??s still better than most of what passes for horror these days. (S.D.)
The Return of Frank James
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A sequel to Henry King's Jesse James, with Fonda, Carradine and Hull repeating their roles; handled in stark, paranoid style by Fritz Lang - who considered movie Westerns the "nibelungen" Saga of America.

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Plucky lass becomes convinced that a race horse named October is the reincarnation of her dead uncle; her friends and relatives are perturbed. (Bob Hope gagmen Panama & Frank dreamed this one up.)(M.W.)

Rated:
Now Playing? No
You can't keep a good man down - courtesy of Hammer Films and their main man, Terence Fisher.
The Revenge of The Pink Panther
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Peter Sellers imperturbably inept Inspector Clouseau, one of the screen's great comic characters, in another display of spastic deduction, ably abetted by the twitching , giggling, beside-himself Inspector Dreyfus, and that whippet-swift, choppy-socky majordomo, Cato. Of all the Clouseau, this is the one that works best as a pure thriller. The plot features heroin smuggling, the Mafia and a little tai kwon do; parts of it might come from a straight Siegel or Frankenheimer auctioneer. But the centerpiece, of course, is Clouseau himself - eternal romantic, bumbling Lecoq, who grandly and indifferently leaves a trail of explosions, disasters, gutted houses and howling victims behind him.
The Revengers
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Obsessed rancher enlists posse of maniacs to aid in his vendetta. Tepid Wild Bunch-Dirty Dozen rip-off (it might better be called The Tame Bunch) by a one-time specialist in serious drama. Daniel Mann (Come Back, Little Sheba, The Rose Tattoo). (M.W.)

Rated: PG-13

Amlan Ganguly empowers slum children to become agents of change. (TMS)
The Right Stuff
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Phil Kaufman turns Tom Wolfe's reportorial saga of the Mercury astronauts (and the rough-riding test pilots who preceeded them, and were swallowed up in their glory) into an irreverent, swashbuckling, hip comic epic. The cinematography, by Caleb (The Black Stallion) Deschanel, is fantastically beautiful, and the whole movie has a roaring, tongue-in-cheek adolescent air; it's a find tweak at grandeur and heroism.
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Xanadu's poet laureate, struggles with inspiration and opium. A rare chance to see one of the BBC docu-dramas that launched enfant terrible Ken Russell; some Russell fans prefer these films to anything he made subsequently.

The Rite
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13

Anthony Hopkins stars in the latest Exorcist knockoff about an exorcist plying his trade in Rome. It delivers sinister atmosphere but few shocks and no characters to root for. (M.B.)
