  • Night Bus

    Shot in stark black and white, this Iranian feature revisits the Iran-Iraq war from the perspective of three Iranians—a hotheaded 18-year-old soldier, an older officer, and a grizzled driver—as they transport a busload of captured Iraqis through a no-man's-land. more...

  • Night Moves (R)

    In the acclaimed Wendy and Lucy (2008), writer-director Kelly Reichardt and screenwriter Jon Raymond submerged their anger over America’s fraying social safety net in a simple story of a homeless young woman and her dog; this excellent drama is more explicit politically but marries the rhetoric to a slow-burning suspense story that won't let go. more...

    Two Asian women who are best friends and a little boy, all realistically established characters, travel by train at night, disembarking at each stop to encounter enigmatic and highly unrealistic events. more...
  • The Night Runner

    Argentine actor Leonardo Sbaraglia is a near-ringer for Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti on The Sopranos) and brings similar resources of vacillation, guilt, and rage to his role as Eduardo, a young Buenos Aires insurance exec alienated from both his high-pressure career and the emotional demands of his pretty wife (Erica Rivas) and two perfect children. more...
