Coriolanus: Ralph Fiennes directs and stars in Shakespeare's tale of a war hero turned politician. It's an immensely entertaining adaptation in modern dress, chock-full of gore.

We Need to Talk About Kevin: Parents (John C. Reilly, Tilda Swinton) raise a rotten, violent kid in this film, which has horror elements but is mainly an indie drama that's not as nuanced as it pretends to be. Teasing flashbacks build cheap suspense.
