  • Kin (PG-13)

    This stylish debut feature by directors Jonathan Baker and his twin Josh Baker mashes up genres like a Cuisinart, and their hybrid of family drama, sci-fi action, crime thriller, coming-of-age story, and road movie mostly works, despite some occasionally thudding B-movie dialogue. more...

  • King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (PG-13)

    Peter Jackson's gripping 2005 remake rethinks the characters from the 1933 original, turning its stark Jungian fantasy into a soulless but skillful set of kinetic and emotional effects. more...
  • King of the Hill (PG-13)

    A lovely piece of work, this 1993 adaptation of A.E. Hotchner's childhood memoirs takes place in Saint Louis in 1933, roughly three decades before director Steven Soderbergh was born, but its portrait of life during the Depression is pungent and wholly believable. more...
