The Artist
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this irresistible comic gem, a silent film star (Jean Dujardin) resists talkies in 1927. The movie is mostly silent itself, featuring an endless parade of creative gags. (M.S.)

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
As outlaw James, Brad Pitt casually dominates every scene he’s in. But it’s Casey Affleck, as Ford, who slinks off with the movie, deftly revealing the contradictory thoughts floating through a celebrity stalker’s mind. (K.W.)

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Assassination Of Trotsky
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Leon Trotsky's last days in Mexico, pursued by an implacable Stalinist assassin. Intelligent, unusual: done in Losey's usual style of cryptic, oblique, off-the-edges menace.
The Astronaut Farmer
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this Disney-ish triumph-of-the-human-spirit movie, Billy Bob Thornton plays a Texas cattle rancher/astronautical engineer who builds a rocket in his barn. Thornton has laced his performance with a shot of vinegar, but the movie itself goes down a little too smoothly. (K.W.)
The Astronaut's Wife
Released: 1999
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Aura
Released: 2005
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Director Fabián Bielinsky spins an enjoyable web of intrigue in this tale of an epileptic taxidermist (Ricardo Darín) who becomes involved in a heist while on a hunting trip. The movie succeeds as a thriller about an ordinary guy in over his head, and itâ??s a sure winner for audiences enamored of the new Argentine cinema. (M.I.)
The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One woman's life - from slavery through the civil-rights struggles of the '60s - becomes a microcosm of the experience of all southern blacks. A moving little film with a powerful climax.

The Aviator's Wife

The first in Eric Rohmer's new film series, "Comedies and Proverbs" (following the series of " Six Moral Tales," which preoccupied him for most of the '60s and '70s). Four hapless lovers - a 15-year-old girl, a 20-year-old boy, his 25-year-old mistress, and her 30 year-old lover - enact an interlocking "roundelay" of pursuit an desire. Intelligent, effervescent, austere - a real delight.

Now Playing? No
The Babe Ruth Story

Now Playing? No
Del Ruth whiffs for the Bambino(M.W.)

The Bachelor Party
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Paddy Chayefsky's and Delbert Mann's follow-up to Marty. The bittersweet view of blue-collar courting rituals is replaced by a sour look at white-collar wedding rites.
The Back-Up Plan
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This is the kind of cookie-cutter romantic comedy that gives the genre a bad name. Jennifer Lopez stars as a giddy Manhattan pet-store owner who has herself artificially inseminated and then promptly meets the man of her dreams. (M.S.)
The Bad And The Beautiful
Released: 1952
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A ruthless, arrogant movie producer, said by some to resemble David O. Selznick, as seen by the director, writer and actress who are among his colleagues and patsies. Stylish, cynical, glamorous, one of the better "inside Hollywood" movies.(M.W.)
The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In post-Katrina New Orleans, a corrupt cop (Nicolas Cage) investigates a horrific crime and, meanwhile, steals, takes drugs, and bets on football. Werner Herzog's nightmarish vision either is highly entertaining camp or it is exquisitely bad, or both. (K.B.)
The Bad News Bears
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A drunken coach, a girl pitcher, a juvenile-delinquent superstar and the most foul-mouthed and inept collection of Little Leaguers this side of Taiwan drive relentlessly for the Thrill of Victory, the Agony of Defeat, and their Moment of Glory. Hilarious, and, in its way, one of the movies' most trenchant and unsparing looks at American sports.
The Bad Seed
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The ultimate in suburban paranoia: a 10-year-old angel in pigtails, beneath whose pinafore beats the heart of a murderess. From Maxwell Anderson's play (and William March;s novel); LeRoy directs it with an incongruous slam-bang cheeriness, and the cast plays to several miles beyond the footlights - but the idea has an odd power. Henry Jones, as an evil handyman, and Eileen Heckart as a murder wictim's distraught mother, contribute some classy, overwrought hamming.
The Bad Sleep Well
Released: 1960
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A young man searches for his father's killer in this 1960 Akira Kurosawa film.
