    A star vehicle, not only because its leads were two of the hottest stars in Hong Kong cinema (Tony Leung and the late Leslie Cheung) and a Taiwanese pop star (Chang Chen, who played the 14-year-old hero of Edward Yang's A Brighter Summer Day), but also because writer-director Wong Kar-wai is something of a star himself. more...

    This fascinating British documentary by Gary Hustwit uses the 50th anniversary of the Swiss typeface Helvetica to consider a half century of graphic design, exploring the tension between the orderly postwar modernists and the individualists who came after them. more...
  • Hedwig and the Angry Inch (R)

    Hedwig (John Cameron Mitchell), whose halfhearted, half-assed sex change at least got her out of Berlin, fronts the Angry Inch, an obscure rock band playing gigs in small clubs while the rock superstar who dumped Hedwig years earlier plays the stadiums next door. more...
  • High Fidelity (R)

    If you can put up with all the archness and self-consciousness—there's quite a bit of both—this is an enjoyable romantic comedy (2000) about a pop music junkie (John Cusack) in Wicker Park who runs an old-fashioned record store and can't seem to sustain a long-term relationship. more...
