  • Facing Windows

  • Family Portrait in Black and White

    At first this Canadian-produced documentary suggests a blandly uplifting human-interest story, introducing a Ukrainian woman who raises almost two dozen foster children of various races, but it soon expands to consider a number of tough issues, including pandemic racism in eastern Europe and the challenge of living strictly by one's moral convictions. more...

    This aquatic joyride from Pixar Animation Studios follows the adventures of a young clownfish who swims beyond his coral-reef colony and gets captured by divers; trapped in an aquarium inside a dentist's office in Sydney, he and his tankmates plot their escape, while his cowardly father (the voice of Albert Brooks) tries to find him with the help of a neurotic and forgetful regal blue tang (Ellen DeGeneres in her best role to date). more...

    In the comedy empire of producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up), many of the breaks have gone to people who toughed it out on his unsuccessful TV series Undeclared and Freaks and Geeks: Seth Rogen, who played one of the stoners on the latter show, has become Apatow's lieutenant and most interesting find, and now Jason Segel, who played another of them, scripted and stars in this solidly funny romantic comedy. more...
  • The Fountainhead (NR)

    King Vidor turned Ayn Rand's preposterous “philosophical” novel into one of his finest and most personal films (1949), mainly by pushing the phallic imagery so hard that it surpasses Rand's rightist diatribes and even camp (“I wish I'd never seen your skyscraper!”), entering some uncharted dimension where melodrama and metaphysics exist side by side. more...

  • Full Metal Jacket (R)

    Stanley Kubrick shares with Orson Welles and Carl Dreyer the role of the Great Confounder—remaining supremely himself while frustrating every attempt to anticipate his next move or to categorize it once it registers. more...
