    If the men's movement ever bankrolled a midnight movie, it might turn out like this UK horror comedy by Jake West (Razor Blade Smile). more...

  • Dolores (NR)

    Hagiographic but still lively and informative, this documentary by Peter Bratt shines a spotlight on a historic, relatively overlooked figure: Dolores Huerta, who cofounded the National Farmworkers Association (eventually the United Farm Workers) with Cesar Chavez in the early 60s. more...

  • The Double Hour (NR)

    The neatest thing about Giuseppe Capotondi's debut feature is how it reverses the mechanics of most crime movies: the criminal activity (which includes murder, robbery, and identity forging) is presented coldly and matter-of-factly, while the mundane moments are made to seem tense with possibility. more...
  • Dough (NR)

    This John Goldschmidt-directed comedy follows the high jinks of an old Jewish baker and his Muslim apprentice after the boy's marijuana stash falls into the dough. more...
  • Downloading Nancy (NR)

    Maria Bello’s performance in this dank psychodrama (2008) has been hailed as “fearless” and “courageous,” critical code for “degrading situations” and “lots of skin.” The story involves a nihilistic survivor of childhood sexual abuse (Bello) who skips out on her pallid, golf-obsessed hubby (Rufus Sewell) for an S-M fling with an Internet lover (Jason Patric) that she hopes will end in her own death. more...

  • Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (NR)

    One of the earliest adaptations of Stevenson's story, although it was at least the sixth, with John Barrymore managing the Jekyll-Hyde transformation without recourse to trick photography. more...
