  • Water

    I haven't seen Fire (1996) or Earth (1998), the first two installments of Deepa Mehta's “elemental trilogy.” But this heartbreaking 2005 feature about the plight of Hindu widows is a potent feminist protest—all the more so because some of the laws depicted are still in force. more...

  • Watermark (PG)

    This 1937 western comedy may not be Laurel and Hardy’s funniest feature (I’d pick Blockheads or Sons of the Desert), but it’s their most accomplished entertainment, a simple story that keeps them center stage for 65 minutes and allows for plenty of dancing, music, and surefire gags. more...
  • The Way South

    This 1981 study of the third world, which takes us from Amsterdam down to the Nile, poses no overarching thesis—filmmaker Johan van der Keuken discards the colonial assumption that he understands the world, focusing as much on his own efforts to see as on his apparent subjects. more...
  • We Are the Night (NR)

    Three lesbian vampires inhabiting a hyperstylized Berlin initiate a feisty new recruit who's ambivalent about the idea of killing to survive. more...
