A lonely, depressed, dope-dealing kid (Josh Peck) on Manhattan's Upper East Side can't quite lift himself out of his high school funk. His relationship with his dope-fiend psychiatrist (Ben Kingsley) is one of the great odd-couple pairings, each of them the other's client. (K.W.)
The Wagons Roll At Night
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A remake of Warner Brothers paradigmatic boxing melodrama, Kid Galahad; The boxing background was jettisoned, and the basic story transferred to a circus (the hero himself becomes a lion tamer). Pretty good. (M.W.)

After a murder, a high-society gay man (Woody Harrelson) gets in the crosshairs of a conservative Justice Department lawyer (William Hope). Writer-director Paul Schrader means to excoriate George W. Bush’s Washington, D.C., but the dull script doesn’t do justice to the juicy subject matter. (J.R.)

The Warrior's Way
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An overwrought pseudo-epic about an assassin (Jang Dong-gun) forced into exile in the old American West when he refuses to kill his rival clan's only surviving member. It’s a not-quite-successful but visually entertaining attempt to merge the tropes of the classic Western with those of the sword-wielding chopsocky genre. (M.S.)
The Warriors
Released: 1979
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
New York street gangs run amok in Walter Hill's intense 1979 film.

The Watch
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this ripping yarn, a young Scottish dreamer (Alex Etel) finds an egg that hatches into the Loch Ness Monster. It’s a family film in the best sense, with excellent CGI effects and an expressive performance by Etel. (M.S.)
The Waterboy
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Way
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An optometrist (Martin Sheen) travels to Europe to claim the ashes of his estranged son, who died in a freak accident during a religious pilgrimage. The film never arrives anywhere you couldn't see coming a mile away, but it does so with such empathy that it feels comforting rather than overly predictable. (K.J.)
The Way
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An American father travels to France to get the body of his estranged son. (TMS)
The Way Back

The Way Way Back
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
After his mother's lover (Steve Carell) belittles him, a boy (Liam James) befriends a water-park employee (Sam Rockwell) who helps him emerge from his shell. Carell's role is thankless and one-dimensional, but Toni Collette is wonderful as his girlfriend, conveying how loneliness and fear can create blind us to the truth. (S.D.)
The Way We Were
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The opening and closing of this bittersweet Rich Blond Wasp-Jewish Socialist romance are quite touching, but in-between writer Arthur Laurents keeps losing his grip. Example: Streisand's Katie, as an identifiable collegiate communist, would not have been crusading as a Eleanor Roosevelt liberal for the "rights of the accused" in the HUAC years. She would have been blacklisted herself. Despite such lapses, an effective soaper.
The Weather Man

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Nicolas Cage is a Chicago weather man caught up in a life-long funk
The Weather Underground
Released: 2002
Rated: NR
