    This intriguing 2008 documentary on life in communist East Germany rambles a bit, but its focus on state surveillance is all too relevant today. more...
  • Dead Alive

    Peter Jackson charts new highs (or lows) in free-flowing gore and nonstop, torrential splatter with this modestly budgeted comic horror extravaganza (1993), originally—and more appropriately—known as Braindead. more...
  • Dead Man Walking (R)

    Tim Robbins's second feature as a writer-director (1995), adapted from Sister Helen Prejean's autobiographical book of the same title, has its awkward and square moments directorially, but it's also uncommonly honest and serious—rare enough qualities these days—and its two powerful lead performances (Susan Sarandon as Prejean and Sean Penn as a rapist and killer she's trying to save in more ways than one) are ample reason to see the picture. more...

  • Dead of Night

    When writer-director Bob Clark died, he was eulogized mainly for his nostalgic comedy A Christmas Story (1984), but he got his start with a string of eerily effective horror flicks like this 1974 feature (also known as Deathdream and The Night Andy Came Home). more...

    With a mercilessness that suggests Todd Solondz, writer-director Bryan Poyser tackles our modern obsession with sex, as a horny teenage boy bonds with a gay neighbor who writes porn for a living. more...
  • Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father

    After Pennsylvania physician Andrew Bagby was found murdered in November 2001, Shirley Turner—his ex-girlfriend and the prime suspect in the case—fled to her native Newfoundland, where she gave birth to Bagby's son, Zachary, and fought extradition to the U.S. For several months she and Bagby's parents tensely shared custody, but when the legal situation began to shift against Turner in August 2003, she killed the baby and herself. more...
  • Death by Hanging

    One of Nagisa Oshima's very best, this 1968 Japanese feature is concerned with the death penalty and the public understanding of a rape and murder committed by a Korean youth. more...
