  • Dallas Buyers Club (R)

    Matthew McConaughey, looking like a waxen Marlboro Man, stars as Ron Woodroof, a real-life Texan who was infected with AIDS in the mid-80s and defied his doctors' death sentence by smuggling great quantities of unlicensed pharmaceuticals into the U.S. Critics are praising this drama for its flashy performances by McConaughey, whose homophobic character is softened by his experience, and Jared Leto, as a transgender man who becomes first his antagonist and then his ally; like the Tom Hanks-Denzel Washington relationship in Philadelphia (1993), their growing fellowship is supposed to provide an entry point for socially conservative viewers, though one wonders if that's really necessary at this point. more...
  • Dance of the Dead (R)

    A 2008 horror-comedy by Gregg Bishop about a zombie-besieged prom that can only be saved by the losers who didn't go. more...
  • A Dangerous Method (R)

    John Kerr's nonfiction book A Most Dangerous Method details the scintillating but ultimately fractious professional friendship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, as well as the torrid affair between Jung and one of his patients that threatened to destroy the burgeoning psychoanalytic movement. more...

  • The Danish Girl (R)

    Director Tom Hooper, a tedious exemplar of the British tradition of quality (The King's Speech), hops on the recent bandwagon for transgender stories with this Oscar-bait adaptation of David Ebershoff's 2000 novel about Lili Elbe, one of the first people to undergo sex-reassignment surgery. more...

  • Danny Collins (R)

    In 1971, John Lennon read an interview with up-and-coming English folksinger Steve Tilston in which Tilston worried that success would inhibit him creatively; the former Beatle dashed off a letter to Tilston protesting that this wasn't so, but Tilston never saw the letter until 2005. more...
  • The Darjeeling Limited (R)

    In its story line, this wacky tale (2007) from Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums) about estranged wealthy brothers (Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, cowriter Jason Schwartzman) reunited for a strained spiritual journey through India is pretty unconvincing as character development. more...
  • The Dark Horse (R)

    The plot of this New Zealand feature (2014) sticks to the template for inspirational-coach dramas, but the genre outlines tend to fade away thanks to the grungy locations, the actors' evident sincerity, and a magnetic performance from Cliff Curtis (Whale Rider) as the troubled hero. more...
  • Dark Places (R)

  • Days of Glory (R)

    Rachid Bouchareb's stirring war movie does for the North Africans what Ousmane Sembene and Thierno Faty Sow's Camp Thiaroye (1987) did for the Senegalese: it acknowledges the important role they played fighting alongside the French in World War II and reveals the harsh and dismissive treatment of them that followed, a result of persistent colonialist attitudes. more...
  • Dazed and Confused (R)

    Belonging to an international trend that might be called the plotless examination of bored teenagers, Richard Linklater's third feature (1993) begins right after the end of spring term in 1976; a lot of the stupidity it lingers over and criticizes (though nostalgia a la American Graffiti threatens to overwhelm the critique) has to do with the brutal hazing of junior high school kids by juniors and seniors. more...
  • D.C. Cab (R)

    Adam Baldwin arrives in Washington and tries to reinvigorate the down-and-out employees of a local taxicab company. more...

  • The Dead Girl (R)

    Unrelievedly grim, this searing second feature by TV actress Karen Moncrieff (Blue Car) guides an unusually able cast through a five-part feature that's closer to a collection of interconnected short stories than to a novel. more...
