  • Danny Says

    Once you get used to Brendan Toller's scattershot direction, this profile of Danny Fields—the editor, publicist, and manager who helped launch the Stooges and the Ramones—is a compelling look at the New York underground of the late 60s and early 70s. 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 first images in Betzy Bromberg's 16-millimeter experimental feature are scallop-edged photographs of a damaged car parked in a field; one shows a child peering inquisitively through the passenger window. more...
  • Darkon

    “I care a lot about this country,” says one subject of this 2006 documentary, but he's talking about Mordomia, the medieval fantasyland he defends every other weekend as part of a live-action role-playing game. more...
  • Daughters, Wives and a Mother

    The vibrant color photography of this Japanese domestic drama (1960) frequently evokes MGM musicals, which seems ironic given Mikio Naruse’s characteristically bitter story of middle-class unhappiness. more...
