  • Nuts!

    I can't imagine anyone believing that goat glands transplanted into human reproductive organs could cure impotence, but as this lively, offbeat documentary proves, plenty of Americans did—enough to make medical charlatan John R. Brinkley a millionaire during the 1920s and '30s. more...

  • Nasty Baby (R)

    Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva is well versed in the easy indolence and fragile well-being of the upper-middle class: his acclaimed 2009 drama The Maid slyly satirized a rich family's emotional exploitation of their longtime domestic servant, and this U.S. production unfolds among the comfortable bohemians of Fort Greene, Brooklyn. more...

  • Non-Stop (PG-13)

    Director Jaume Collet-Serra and cinematographer Flavio Labiano are both Spanish, which might explain why Non-Stop, the new Liam Neeson thriller, feels more like recent genre entertainment from Spain than from Hollywood: the filmmaking is playful without feeling jokey, the narrative stuffed with fun complications. more...

    Hal Hartley was one of the most celebrated young indie filmmakers in America when he released Henry Fool (1997); by the time of its sequel Fay Grim (2006), he was one of the most unjustly neglected. more...

    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...

  • No No: A Dockumentary

    Dock Ellis will go down in history as the man who pitched a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1970 while tripping on LSD, though by the time he died of cirrhosis in 2008, he'd long since retired from baseball, sworn off drugs and alcohol, and become a substance abuse counselor. more...

    All the Oscar buzz is for Bruce Dern as a grizzled old coot sliding into dementia, but the most impressive performance in this poignant black-and-white comedy comes from Will Forte as the man's long-suffering son, who wearily humors his dad's conviction that he's won a million dollars on one of those sweepstakes offers that come in the mail. more...

    The American regional-cinema movement got a boost from overseas when this 1978 drama, shot in black-and-white by writer-directors John Hanson and Rob Nilsson, won the Camera d'Or (for best debut feature) at the Cannes film festival. more...
