  • Germany Year 90 Nine Zero

    Jean-Luc Godard's devastating 1991 film about the collapse of the Berlin wall is probably the most underrated and neglected of his major late films, perhaps because its 62-minute running time makes it difficult to program theatrically. more...
  • Germany, Year Zero

    Roberto Rossellini followed Open City and Paisan with this film, the final chapter in what's come to be known as his “War Trilogy.” Filmed in the bombed-out Berlin of 1947, it deals with the aftermath of the war, a pervading moral crisis, and the fate of a young German boy. more...
  • Gertrud

  • Get Him to the Greek (R)

    When your parents saw this movie, it was called My Favorite Year (1982) and concerned a young TV writer in the 1950s who's ordered to chaperone a drunken, washed-up matinee idol (Peter O'Toole) through the rehearsal and live broadcast of a prime-time variety show. more...

    The ivory-billed woodpecker was thought to be extinct since the 1920s, so when sightings of the bird were reported in eastern Arkansas in 2004 and verified by the ornithology lab at Cornell University, environmentalists responded with something approaching ecstasy. more...
  • Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

    Jim Jarmusch's seventh narrative feature (1999) focuses on a solitary inner-city maverick and hit man (Forest Whitaker) who lives on a rooftop with pigeons and has trained himself as a samurai according to the 18th-century book Hagakure: The Way of the Samurai, pledging loyalty to a New Jersey gangster (John Tormey) who once saved his life, whom he communicates with mainly by carrier pigeon. more...
  • The Ghost Goes West

    French director Rene Clair made his English-language debut with this 1936 Alexander Korda production, about an American millionaire (Eugene Pallette) who ships an old Scottish castle to his estate in Florida for reassembly and finds that he's acquired the family ghost (Robert Donat) along with the family home. more...
  • Ghost Town

    Directed by Zhao Dayong, this 2008 documentary presents Zhizilou, a small town in Yunan province, as evidence that the Chinese economic miracle has eroded once-thriving rural cultures by drawing villagers to large cities. more...
  • Ghost World (R)

    Terry Zwigoff (Crumb) brilliantly negotiates the shift to fiction filmmaking in a very personal adaptation of the Daniel Clowes comic book, which either captures with uncanny precision what it's like to be a teenage girl in this country or fooled me utterly into thinking it does. more...
