    Errol Morris must have needed a break from life's misery after taking on capital punishment (Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A.

  • Take Me Home Tonight (R)

  • Take This Waltz (R)

    Sarah Polley, whose stunning drama Away From Her (2006) chronicled the separation of a husband and wife in their 60s, turns her attention to a married couple in their 20s (Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams) and the woman's wrenching love affair with their neighbor across the street (Luke Kirby). more...

  • Tank Girl (R)

    Lori Petty does a nice job in the title role of this enjoyable 1995 feature based on the postapocalyptic SF comic book and set in the year 2033; it's basically aimed at teenagers, though it's a lot more feminist than what usually passes for adult fare. more...
  • Tape (R)

    Made over five years, this video by Chinese performance artist Li Ning presents his efforts to create guerrilla street theater even as his marriage dissolves and his finances dwindle. more...

  • Taxi Driver (R)

    Martin Scorsese put all the city dweller's irrational, guilty fears into this 1976 story of a New York taxi driver (Robert De Niro) on a one-man rampage against the "scum"—pimps, whores, muggers, junkies, and politicians. more...
