  • Inside Deep Throat

    Produced by Ron Howard's longtime collaborator Brian Grazer, this entertaining documentary recounts the production of the notorious adult film Deep Throat (1972) and the free-speech battle that enveloped it. more...
  • Inside Llewyn Davis (R)

    From a distance, this feature by Joel and Ethan Coen might resemble the brothers' 1991 farce Barton Fink: like the earlier movie, it evokes a specific showbiz milieu (Greenwich Village in the early 60s) as it follows an aspiring artist (a down-and-out folkie played by Oscar Isaac) who's based on a real-life figure (singer-guitarist Dave Van Ronk). more...
  • Inside Man

    “We've all seen Dog Day Afternoon,” hostage negotiator Denzel Washington tells bank robber Clive Owen in this wily thriller, which revitalizes a familiar premise by turning it inside out. more...
  • Interkosmos

    Poker-faced, often hilarious, and endlessly inventive, this minimalist mockumentary by Chicago filmmaker Jim Finn uses a few established facts to invent a wild narrative about an international communist project to establish colonies on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. more...
  • Intermission

    Critics in the UK have compared this ensemble comedy to Magnolia, Short Cuts, and Amores perros, but that's a clear case of oversell: at 105 minutes, it operates on a much smaller scale than any of those ubernarratives. more...
  • (Inter)National Commodities

    The talking-head shots of Cambodian survivors of sexual slavery in Sonya Shah's Something Between Her Hands (2003) demonstrate that sometimes the best choice a filmmaker can make is to dispense with artifice entirely. more...
  • International House

    An extremely bizarre film from 1933, which has something to do with a trans-Siberian race between Stuart Erwin and W.C. Fields, ending up at a Chinese hotel staffed by Franklin Pangborn, George Burns, and Gracie Allen, where a mysterious Chinese doctor is demonstrating his latest invention—television—by tuning in (live!) more...
  • The Interrupters (NR)

    Director Steve James (Hoop Dreams, Stevie) and longtime friend Alex Kotlowitz (author of the best seller There Are No Children Here) produced this stirring documentary about CeaseFire, an organization founded by epidemiologist Dr. Gary Slutkin. more...
  • Interview

    This 2003 drama from the Netherlands exploits both our worship of celebrity and our distrust of the media, as an angry political reporter (Pierre Bokma), traumatized by a tour of duty in Bosnia, is assigned to write a puff piece about a stunning young film and TV star (Katja Schuurman, playing a version of herself) who's hostile toward the press. more...
  • Into Eternity (NR)

    Danish artist Michael Madsen directed and narrates this chilling video documentary about the construction of a nuclear waste storage facility in Finland that must remain closed for 100,000 years. more...
  • Into Great Silence

    German filmmaker Philip Gröning spent six months filming inside the Grande Chartreuse monastery in the French Alps, and at 162 minutes his pictorial study of the Carthusian monks' still, quiet, deeply spiritual existence gradually enveloped me. Shot in natural light, the meditative images range from endless stone corridors cloaked in shadow to glittering snow-covered mountains, and the sequences of anonymous monks going silently about their work are dramatically punctuated by prolonged close-ups of the men, their faces shaded by the wisdom of their years and the power of their devotion. more...
  • Into the Abyss (PG-13)

    The title of this Werner Herzog documentary may suggest another expedition to the ends of the earth, but what concerns him here is the moral abyss of capital punishment and the metaphysical abyss of death itself. more...
  • Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport (R)

    An excellent documentary by Mark Jonathan Harris (2000), narrated by Judi Dench, that chronicles the experiences of a few members of the Kindertransport—about 10,000 children from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia, most of them Jewish, who were saved from the Holocaust by parents who packed them off to England in the late 30s. more...
