  • The Theory of Everything (PG-13)

    A largely emotional portrait of a formidably cerebral figure, this biopic of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking focuses on his 30-year marriage to Jane Wilde and his struggle to live life to the fullest despite the relentless wasting effects of motor neuron disease. more...
  • There Was a Father

    A quietly moving 1942 Japanse feature by Yasujiro Ozu chronicling the mutual devotion of a father (Chishu Ryu, in another of his exquisite, subtle performances) and his son over a 13-year period—from the father's resignation from teaching to his peaceful, triumphant death and the son's subsequent marriage. more...

  • Therese

    Therese Martin died of neglect and consumption in a Carmelite convent at the age of 25, leaving behind little more than a slim volume of memoirs and a reputation for piety and self-mortification. more...

    This 1940 feature begins as a fast, growly proletarian drama of an independent trucker (George Raft) fighting to build his business, but breaks midway and becomes a high bourgeois melodrama about an ambitious woman (Ida Lupino) on trial for killing her husband. more...
  • They Live by Night

    A key film noir of the 40s, this was Nicholas Ray's first film as a director (1949), and the freshness of his expressionist-documentary style is still apparent and gripping. more...
  • They Were Expendable

    John Ford poured his accumulated emotions about World War II, a combination of personal bitterness and benign acceptance of duty, into this moving account of the fortunes of a PT-boat squadron as its ranks are thinned out up to the retreat from the Philippines. more...
  • Thieves' Highway

    Perhaps the most unjustly neglected of Jules Dassin's preblacklist Hollywood pictures, and one of the best noirs ever made, this 1949 release is a terrific, fast-moving thriller about the corruption of the California fruit market business. more...
  • The Thin Man

    It took 16 days to film in 1934, but W.S. Van Dyke's version of Dashiell Hammett's novel proved to be one of the most popular comedies ever made. more...
