  • Pan's Labyrinth (R)

    A Mexican-Spanish coproduction by the talented Guillermo del Toro (Cronos), this nightmarish fairy tale for grown-ups takes place in Spain after the civil war, when the Republicans were still counting on help from the Allies that would never come. more...
  • The Paperboy (R)

    A strange hybrid of southern gothic literature and 70s drive-in cinema, this drama centers on a young man in south Florida (Zac Efron) whose older brother (Matthew McConaughey), a reporter for a Miami daily, returns to town hoping to exonerate a worthless swamp rat (John Cusack) for the murder of a local sheriff. more...

  • Parents (R)

    The first feature directed by actor Bob Balaban (1989) brings back the late 50s in the form of a highly original comic nightmare. more...
  • Paterson
  • Paterson (R)

    The eponymous New Jersey town proves to be a hotbed of poetry and art in this comedy from writer-director Jim Jarmusch, thanks to his beautifully loony conceit that all ordinary Americans are closet poets and artists of one kind or another (even if they don't always know it). more...
  • The Patience Stone (R)

    In an unnamed Middle Eastern country in the throes of civil war, a woman (Golshifteh Farahani) struggles to protect her young children and comatose husband, a well-known jihadist a few decades her senior; with no one else to protect her, this docile wife and mother belatedly comes into her own. more...
  • Paul (R)

    Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the inspired British duo who spoofed horror movies in Shaun of the Dead and cop thrillers in Hot Fuzz, star as sci-fi fanboys who arrive in the U.S. for a comic-book convention and, piloting their RV through Area 51, pick up an escaped space alien with the voice of Seth Rogen. more...
  • Pauline at the Beach (R)

    The third entry in Eric Rohmer's "Comedies and Proverbs" series (1983) takes a further step in exteriority over the intimacy of the “Six Moral Tales,” borrowing a mistaken-identity plot that embroils the six major characters in the cold machinations of a conventional sex farce. more...
  • Personal Shopper
  • Personal Shopper (R)

    Thematically this is Olivier Assayas's darkest feature since Boarding Gate (2007), though it's much better, owing largely to Kristen Stewart's mesmeric performance as a young Parisian who works as personal shopper to a jet-set model and, in her spare time, communicates with the dead. more...
  • The Pianist (R)

    Roman Polanski's 2002 film about classical pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman (Adrien Brody), a Polish Jew who managed to survive the Warsaw ghetto, won the top prize at Cannes and an Oscar for best director, and it's easy to understand why: Polanski, himself a survivor of the Krakow ghetto, is so authoritative in showing us what life there was like that this film makes more conventional heart tuggers like Schindler's List shrivel to insignificance. more...
  • Platoon (R)

    Oliver Stone's fictionalized memoir of the Vietnam war (1986) attempts to re-create, as viscerally as possible, the harrowing realities of combat—blood and guts and traumatized emotions splayed out like freshly exploded corpses in a minefield. more...

  • Please Give (R)

    The witty and perceptive writer-director Nicole Holofcener (Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing, Friends With Money) delivers her best feature yet, a sharp-elbowed philosophical comedy that ponders why people find it so hard to be generous with one another. more...
  • Poison (R)

    This 1991 avant-garde shocker by Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) freely cuts between three supposedly separate stories, each in a different style and set in a different period: a 40s tale of homoerotic passion in a prison that's loosely derived from Jean Genet, a black-and-white 50s SF-horror melodrama about a leprous sex criminal, and an 80s TV exposé about a victimized seven-year-old boy who murders his father. more...
