  • The Shawshank Redemption (R)

    A 21-year friendship between a lifer (Morgan Freeman) and a New England banker convicted of murder (Tim Robbins) is the focus of this gripping 1994 prison drama, capably directed and adapted by Frank Darabont from Stephen King's short novel Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. more...

  • She's Funny That Way (R)

    Backed by executive producers Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, Peter Bogdanovich tries to revive the screwball comedy of What's Up, Doc? more...
  • She's Out of My League (R)

    A nebbish who searches suitcases at the Philadelphia airport (Jay Baruchel) stumbles into a serious commitment with a hot chick (Alice Eve), though his buddies are quick to point out that she’s way more attractive than he is. Lord knows the shoe-sniffing, armpit-patting, body-scanning Transportation Security Authority is a ripe target for sexual satire, but screenwriters Sean Anders and John Morris are less interested in this idea than in the whining bromanticism of their young bucks as they expose their innermost feelings about love and loneliness. more...

  • Shutter Island (R)

    Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo star as federal marshals summoned to an island hospital for the criminally insane; a patient has gone missing, but the more they question the doctors and staff, the more they suspect something fishy is going on. more...
  • Shuttle (R)

    First-time director Edward Anderson uses a mundane situation--two women friends, returning home from a brief vacation, board a late-night shuttle bus with two men they've met in the airport--to launch a terrifying chain of events. more...
  • Sicario
  • Sicario (R)

    American action movies about the drug cartels (David Ayer's Sabotage, Oliver Stone's Savages) have a high bar to clear: unless they bring some greater understanding of the crisis, their portrayal of the cartels' barbarism seems like crass exploitation. more...
  • Sid and Nancy (R)

    For all the furious acting out on view, Alex Cox's 1986 feature about rock-scene burnouts Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen (Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb) seems a study in contemporary asceticism; their lacerating pursuit of subcultural purity couldn't be more thorough if undertaken in a monk's cell. more...
  • Side Effects (R)

    This neatly executed mystery is just the sort of thing Hollywood craves from Steven Soderbergh: genre entertainment as cool, clean, and impersonal as a Formica countertop. more...
