Insidious: A family battles a malevolent force that has lured its son into a supernatural coma. The movie feels like a lamest-hits reel from the horror genre.

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives: This moving, challenging film mainly concerns a Thai farmer (Thanapat Saisaymar) with a kidney disorder, but some of the long, mysterious scenes don't seem directly connected to the others. Writer and director Apichatpong Weerasethakul touches on grand themes - religion, politics - and lets viewers sort out what it all means.
