Movie Times Search


Recommended Movies

  • Drama
    Intelligently scripted by Audrey Wells and sensitively directed by George Tillman Jr.
  • Romantic comedy
    Knockout visuals, a winning cast, and an irrepressibly feel-good vibe make this
  • Comedy/Film noir/Mystery
    Probably the Coen brothers' most enjoyable movie—glittering with imagination, cleverness, and filmmaking
  • Action
    Walter Hill's existential action piece (1979), rendered in a complete stylistic abstraction

From the Archive

  • The ditzy pinup girl in The Notorious Bettie Page and the brainy predator in Basic Instinct 2 are two sides of the same coin.
  • The least-known Cahiers critic who became a filmmaker is also the funniest.
