The Sound and The Fury
Released: 1959
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Faulkner's incandescent novel of the damned, doomed Compsons; stripped by the scenarist of its poetry and radical narrative experiments, however, it nearly becomes a tale told by an idiot, signifying nothing.

The Southerner
Released: 1945
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A simple chronicle of a poor white Texas family and the year they spend struggling (against their neighbors, the elements and themselves) to establish their own farm - made luminous, moving and unforgettable by the magically human touch of Jean Renoir. One of his uncredited collaborators on the script was William Faulkner; together, they created the kind of "poetry of the commonplace" later made famous in the neo-realists films of De Sica and Rossellini. The movie breathes with sunlight, fog and possum hunts at nightfall, the restlessly flowing river, the earth itself. It's an American masterpiece.

Piracy with a high sheen; hackwork from one of the screen's great romantics, Frank Borzage.

The Spiderwick Chronicles
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Siblings discover an alternate world after moving into a rundown estate. The film is full of entertaining CGI creations, but the full-throttle narrative never gives those creations -- or the human characters about whom we're supposed to care -- any time to breathe. (S.R.)

The Spiral Staircase
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Gothic mansion shrouded in the night and lashed by furious gusts, the elderly invalid, her mind a cavern of sinister secrets, asleep in the grand bedroom; the terrified mute servant girl moving through the shadowy corridors and the twisting staircases, hearing in every crackle, every scuring noise, a premonition of horror; and, somewhere in the night, a psychotic killer who strikes without warning, deadly, implacable, consumed with bloodlust, a killer whose targets are young women, who believes that the maimed, the halt and the "defective" should be done away with. Now, it is the darkest hour of the night; now the wind screams with a redoubled fury; now the candles gutter and blink, and what is that creaking slow footstep? There it is: closer and closer now, treading calmly and steadily up the spiral staircase..Robert Slodmak's famous melodrama, drenched in Teutonic atmosphere, is the paradigmatic lady-in-distress thriller. Try not to see it alone at night, particularity if the weather is bad...
The Spirit
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Frank Miller's big-screen adaptation of Will Eisner's comic-book crime fighter has plenty of spirit but no soul at all. A long, incoherent mess of a film. (M.S.)

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Spoilers
Released: 1942
Rated:

Rex Beach's oft-filmed saga of perfidy in the Yukon, with its legendary slam-bang barroom brawl.

The Spy Next Door
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Jackie Chan plays a CIA spy forced to look after his girlfriend’s kids. It’s painful to see a comic and physical genius like Chan reduced to moth-eaten pratfalls. (M.S.)

Rated:
Now Playing? No
From John le Carre's first novel, a gray bitter, clear-eyed look at international espionage.
The Spy Who Loved Me
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Sur-prisingly enough, this is the best of all the James Bond movies - despite the fact that stolid Roger Moore is no match for Sean Connery. Just what the series was always supposed to have been - full of spectacular action, location photography, glossy eroticism, and tongue-in-cheek humor - and, with a few exceptions, like "Goldfinger," frequently wasn't.
The Square
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This impressive Australian suspense movie involves a construction worker’s lust for a neighbor’s wife and a satchel full of ill-gotten cash. It’s a blazingly feel-bad slice of neo-noir played out with grueling attention to detail and tone. (M.S.)
The Squid and the Whale
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre
Released: 1967
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A little Prohibition unpleasantness between Alphonse Capone and "Bugsy" Moran, done by Corman as a cross between early Warners and late "Untouchables."
