    The Keeper of Lost Causes

    The Dept. Q Trilogy, based on three best-selling crime novels by Danish writer Jussi Adler-Olsen, draws comparisons with Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo franchise: set in Scandinavia and featuring a sullen male protagonist, it's violent, hard-boiled, and psychologically disturbing. more...
  • Kill the Irishman (R)

    Jonathan Hensleigh directed this story of a Cleveland gangster (Ray Stevenson) engaged in a power struggle with the Mafia. more...
  • The Killer (R)

    A lot of claims have been made for this campy bloodbath concerto (1989) by Hong Kong director John Woo, and I must admit that he's even better than Brian De Palma at delivering emotional and visceral excess with staccato relentlessness. more...
  • The Killer Inside Me (R)

    Shape-shifting British director Michael Winterbottom—whose filmography ranges from rock comedy (24 Hour Party People) to harsh social drama (In This World) to literary postmodernism (Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story) to sexual rhapsody (9 Songs)—takes on the uniquely searching and sinister pulp fiction of Jim Thompson. more...
  • Killer Joe (NC-17)

    William Friedkin directed this adaptation of Tracy Letts's play about a sadistic Dallas cop (Matthew McConaughey) who moonlights as a hit man.

    Arguably Stanley Kubrick's most perfectly conceived and executed film, this 1956 noirish thriller utilizes an intricate overlapping time structure to depict the planning and execution of a plot to steal $2 million from a racetrack. more...
  • Killing Them Softly (R)

    Producer Brad Pitt and writer-director Andrew Dominik team up again after their critically acclaimed The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007), switching genres from western to crime—their source material is George V. Higgins's 1974 novel Cogan's Trade—but focusing again on the talk of hardened men. more...

  • King Cobra

    IFC Films is distributing this lurid true-crime drama under its "IFC Midnight" brand, but the movie is more like something you'd stumble across on cable at 4 AM before giving up on the day. more...
  • A King in New York (R)

    This is one of the few Chaplin films that needs a defense: for many people, it's mawkish and shapeless, yet that same mawkishness and shapelessness are also signs of freedom and directness, qualities that recall the wonderfully casual Chaplin of the early Keystone shorts. more...
