  • Hadewijch

    Patrick Dempsey and Helen Slater play college freshmen who become lovers after accidentally wind up as roommates. more...
  • Happy Together

    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...

  • Happy-Go-Lucky

    A new drama by British director Mike Leigh is always cause for celebration, though if you saw his last two—All or Nothing (2002), about a modern working-class family coming apart at the seams, and Vera Drake (2004), about a good-hearted 1950s matriarch who performs back-alley abortions—you may not have been in a mood to celebrate afterward. more...
  • Harvard Beats Yale 29-29

    Documentary maker Kevin Rafferty revisits the legendary November 1968 football game between the Yale Bulldogs and the Harvard Crimson, interviewing 37 former players to record not only what transpired on the gridiron but the ideological tensions of the day as campus resistance to the Vietnam war reached a fever pitch. more...
  • Heathers

    Michael Lehmann's first film as a director and Daniel Waters's first film as a screenwriter, this misanthropic 1989 black comedy about the cruelty of high school teenagers succeeds at least in being offbeat, but its inanities and glib pretensions are so thick that it mainly comes across as tacky and contrived. 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...
  • Helvetica (NR)

    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...
  • Hemel

    The title of this Danish drama translates as "Heaven," the given--and ultimately ironic--name of its bewitching protagonist (Hannah Hoekstra). more...

  • Hero (R)

    On the eve of China's first dynasty, a mysterious man (Jet Li) explains to a warlord how he eliminated three assassins, but his story keeps changing as the warlord questions him; each version of the events is signified visually by a dominant color. more...
  • High Art

    As storytelling it isn't always as clean as it might be, but this 1998 first feature by writer-director Lisa Cholodenko is an interesting debut for its nuanced sense of character and its terrific sex scenes—scenes that actually serve character development for a change. 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...
