  • 12 Monkeys (R)

    Following a global epidemic that has eradicated most of humanity, time travel becomes the only hope of mankind's survival; a volunteer (Bruce Willis) returns to 1990s Philadelphia to find the source of the epidemic, but he's promptly locked away as a madman. more...
  • A.I. Artificial Intelligence (PG-13)

    A collaboration between the living Steven Spielberg and the late Stanley Kubrick seems appropriate to a project that reflects profoundly on the differences between life and nonlife. more...
  • A Lawyer Walks Into a Bar . . .

    Too slick and sound-bitey for its own good, this documentary about U.S. lawyers aims for the smart-aleck tone of its title while throwing out punchy statistics as if it were a PowerPoint presentation. more...
  • A nous la liberte

    Rene Clair's 1931 satire on industrialization was overshadowed for many years by Chaplin's Modern Times and then forgotten, though its recent release on DVD has given it a second—and well-deserved—lease on life. more...
  • Aaltra

    Benoit Delepine and Gustave de Kervern's 2004 Belgian comedy in black-and-white 'Scope follows a couple of feuding farmers paralyzed in a tractor accident who travel together to confront the company that built the machine. more...
  • ABC Africa

    The most accessible film to date by Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami, though some have been scared away (unwarrantedly, in my opinion) by its subject matter: the many Ugandan children orphaned by AIDS. more...
  • Abigail's Party

    A videotaped version of a Mike Leigh stage play (1977) that is one of his most scathing and extreme works, aptly described by one commentator as a “cocktail party from hell.” A highly insensitive, aggressive, and garish housewife (Alison Steadman) “entertains” three neighbors (Janine Duvitsky, John Salthouse, Harriet Reynolds) while bickering with her uptight husband (Tim Stern). more...
  • About Baghdad

    Shot in July 2003, this collectively made video documentary is by far the most comprehensive account I've seen of how Iraqis view the U.S. war and occupation. more...
  • About Schmidt

    I was so offended by the cynicism and class condescension of Citizen Ruth, Alexander Payne's first feature, that I've remained suspicious of his work even as he's emerged as a more skillful director in Election and this still more ambitious and accomplished film. more...
  • Above and Beyond

    A sober and dutiful black-and-white biopic (1952) starring Robert Taylor as the pilot who dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. more...
  • Absolute Beginners

    A fascinating attempt by rock video director Julien Temple to do several things at once—adapt a Colin MacInnes novel, show the London youth scene in 1958 (while dealing at length with the racial tensions of the period), build on some of the stylistic innovations of Frank Tashlin, Vincente Minnelli, and Orson Welles, and put to best use a fascinating score by Gil Evans that adapts everything from Charles Mingus to Miles Davis. more...
  • Absolute Power

    Clint Eastwood as producer-director-star strikes out in a rather slack thriller that oddly recalls a couple of Hitchcock's lesser movies, To Catch a Thief and Topaz. more...
