  • Savages (R)

    A brutal Mexican drug cartel tries to muscle in on the booming pot business of two Laguna Beach dudes (Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson), whose partnership includes a laid-back menage-a-trois with a bronzed So-Cal beauty (Blake Lively); when the Americans refuse to cooperate, the Mexicans kidnap the woman and threaten to behead her. more...
  • Scarface (R)

    Brian De Palma dedicates this 1983 feature to Howard Hawks and Ben Hecht, authors of the 1932 original, though I doubt they would find much honor in his gory inflation of their crisp, 90-minute comic nightmare into a lumbering, self-important, arrhythmic downer of nearly three hours. more...
  • Scarlet Street

    Fritz Lang's most harrowing study of guilt and damnation, this 1945 feature is a remake of Jean Renoir's La Chienne, with Edward G. Robinson as a quietly suffering bookkeeper who encounters fate in the form of a calculating prostitute (Joan Bennett) and her pimp (Dan Duryea). more...

  • Serpico

    A virtuoso performance by Al Pacino and some expert location work by Sidney Lumet add up to a tour de force genre piece (1973) that transcends the supercop conventions to create a moving, engrossing portrait of Frank Serpico—a literate, sensitive, honest cop who tried to come to terms with society and the policeman's place in it, and was crucified by a police department too corrupt to want any part of the real world. more...
  • Seven (R)

    Who would have guessed that a grisly and upsetting serial-killer police procedural (1995) costarring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman as detectives, written by a Tower Records cashier (Andrew Kevin Walker), and directed by David Fincher (Alien) would bear a startling resemblance to a serious work of art? more...
  • Seven Little Killers
  • Seven Little Killers

    Teenagers in an Italian village are questioned by police about the death of a local vagrant, last seen in a field where the kids like to hang out; thirty years later a new police chief, reviewing the old case file, makes a discovery that prompts him to reopen the case and subpoena the now-grown witnesses. more...
