Awake, Things We Lost in the Fire
Released this week: Into the Wild, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, My Kid Could Paint That.

Awake: In this passably enjoyable medical thriller, Hayden Christensen is a man who remains fully awake, albeit paralyzed, during open-heart surgery; to make matters worse, the doctors may be botching the operation on purpose. Jessica Alba plays Christensen's love interest, and as the absurdities pile up you can keep yourself awake by ogling the drop-dead gorgeous leads.
-KENT WILLIAMS

Things We Lost in the Fire: In Susanne Bier's impeccably constructed drama, a recent widow (Halle Berry) invites her husband's junkie friend (Benicio Del Toro) to live with her family. Del Toro offers the most intricately mapped depiction of addiction and strained humanity ever put on screen.
