Opening This Week

DAN IN REAL LIFE—Hollywood loves to neuter its comedians for the sake of playing artsy over archetype, and with Steve Carell, it started either with Little Miss Sunshine or when they marketed Evan Almighty to evangelical groups. His slow ascent over the shark tank continues with this cloying, derivative dramedy in which he plays Dan, a writer and widower rearing three young daughters. Together they travel to his extended family's annual fall get-together in Rhode Island for a flannel-clad weekend of word games, living room talent shows and pancake breakfasts. Home for the Holidays quickly transitions to The Family Stone when Dan falls for his brother's new girlfriend (Juliette Binoche). The script is insipid and the actors are miscast and/or misused, especially Emily Blunt, wasted in a throwaway role. Here's betting it is just a matter of time before we see Stephen Colbert starring in a Nora Ephron romantic-comedy. Rated PG-13. —NM

Wes Anderson on the set of The Darjeeling Limited, which opens in select theaters Friday.
  • Wes Anderson on the set of The Darjeeling Limited, which opens in select theaters Friday.
THE DARJEELING LIMITED—Years after the death of their father, Francis Whitman (Owen Wilson) invites his brothers (Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman) for a voyage across India, embarking on a self-described "spiritual journey." This film might well be viewed as the anchor leg to Anderson's unofficial Daddy trilogy, steeped in the paradox that while family is ostensibly the strongest of bonds, it is the one human relationship not formed by free association or commonality of personality. This is Anderson's most accessible, poetic and poignant to date. Read our full review. Rated R. —NM

GYPSY CARAVAN—A concert documentary plus, Gypsy Caravan gathers Romany bands from across the globe for a six week US concert tour.  Musicians include Taraf de Haidouks from Rumania (a highlight of the splendid Latcho Drom), Antonio's blazing flamenco dancing inspired by the throaty moan of Antonio El Pipa from Spain, Macedonia's flirtatious Esma Redzepova, the "Queen of the Gypsies" and Maharaja from Rajasthan, India, starring a young man performing a traditional Sufi inspired dance in women's dress—on his knees. Director Jasmine Dellal has overstuffed her movie with both music and talk, with the help of a crew helmed by veteran cinematographer Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens). At first, it's irritating when the camera cuts away during the songs, but the interviews with the musicians illuminate the sources—often tragic—of their passionate performances. By the end, Roma from across the gypsy diaspora have clasped one another into a joyous, melodious embrace. Not rated. —LB

LARS AND THE REAL GIRL—Ryan Gosling is a long way from his romantic turn in The Notebook as Lars, a painfully repressed young man who orders a "RealDoll" off the Internet and talks to it as though she's real, forcing his small town to cater to his delusion. The film avoids all sexual angles, instead veering between a sitcom update of Harvey and a darker character study of Lars' pain. It could be this fall's Little Miss Sunshine—take that as you will. Rated PG-13. —ZS

JAB WE MET (WHEN WE MET)—A chance encounter, a missed train connection, and love blooms between Aditya (Shahid Kapoor) and Geet (Kareena Kapoor) as road movie and romantic comedy blend in picturesque Northern India. Shahid and Kareena, who are no relation, were a real-life romantic couple until recently, and their split jeopardizes all the lovey-dovey publicity. Not rated. —LB

SAW IVIt's the fourth go-round, and it seems that there's more cutting to do. With Donnie Wahlberg. Rated R.

Current Releases

3:10 TO YUMAWalk the Line director James Mangold helms a spirited remake of Delmer Daves' 1957 Western, in which a financially strapped rancher (Christian Bale) joins a posse attempting to deliver a captured outlaw (Russell Crowe) to the train to prison. Compared to the sleek original, the new movie is bigger, noisier, more violent and longer. But at a time when Westerns are rare, it's a pleasure to see one done with this film's energy and conviction; it brims with the genre's traditional satisfactions, and Crowe's subtle, commanding performance ranks with his best. Rated R. —GC

30 DAYS OF NIGHT—Perhaps the best thing going for director David Slade's adaptation of Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith's creepy comic series is its vampires: a rag-tag team of dark-eyed, saw-toothed flesh fiends who scream with otherworldly falsettos and circle their prey before picking at them with fingernails and teeth. Withdraw these thrills and we have a film that relies too much on a Hollywood Western's cowboy vs. bad guy gumption and sappy reconciled romance to achieve anything close to scary. If the high gloss of fancy camerawork and editing tricks chill your blood then this film's for you. If you're into Hitchcockian slow-burn suspense then go rent Nosferatu. Josh Harnett revives his wooden acting skills as the town's stoic sheriff and Melissa George plays his thick-lipped estranged wife. Rated R. —KJ

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE—Director Julie Taymor (The Lion King, Frida) attempts to take the decade of the 1960s, fold it flat and slide it into the record sleeve of a Beatles LP. Lucy (sort-of-from-Raleigh Evan Rachel Wood) and Jude (Jim Sturgess) conduct a slow burning romance that mirrors the decade's turbulence. Dinner-table squabbles about long hair and the Vietnam war spawn the counterculture, and Taymor scores the zeitgeist to 33 Beatles songs we all know by heart. Rated PG-13. —LB

THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD—With a bleak visual poetry worthy of Terrence Malick, deliberate pacing and fastidiously oblique dialogue, writer-director Andrew Dominick traces Jesse James' final days as a haggard celebrity bandito; Brad Pitt delivers a subtle, weary performance in the lead role and is matched by Casey Affleck as his young fan-cohort-killer. Though the 2 hr. 40 min. film is admirably uncompromising and brilliant in many moments, its final section proves overlong and unfocused; mainstream audiences will undoubtedly find the whole slow and ponderous. Rated R. —GC

BHOOL BHULAIYAA (LABYRINTH)—Newlyweds Shiney Ahuja and Vidya Balan move into his family's sprawling ancestral mansion despite dire warnings, and unlock a door that should never have been opened. The couple summon American psychiatrist Akshay Kumar to be their ghostbuster in this haunted-house comedy helmed by current laugh raja Priyadarshan. Not rated. —LB

THE COMEBACKS—In this parody of sports movies, a loser coach coaxes athletic accomplishments out of losers. Although there is no "I" in team, there are three "I"s in "Isn't there anything else playing?" Rated PG-13.

ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE—Director Shekhar Kapur's sequel to his 1998 hit tracks the middle years of Elizabeth's reign, a period that saw the Anglo-Spanish War and the beheading of Mary, Queen of Scots (Samantha Morton). The director attempts to deconstruct the Virgin Queen through a bloated costume melodrama that feels drawn from the same cinematic playbook as Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Reprising her role as the title character, Cate Blanchett chews the scenery in a futile attempt to prop up this royal mess. Rated PG-13. —NM

GONE BABY GONE—For his directorial debut, Ben Affleck and first-time screenwriter Aaron Stockard co-adapt author Dennis Lehane's novel about the search for a kidnapped four-year-old girl living in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood. Tension flows from the combustible ethnic, political, and socio-economic forces at work, from the lumpen local hoi polloi to the seemly underbelly of the Bostonian drug trade to the simultaneous dedication and duplicity of the police. The finished product is taut, thought-provoking, and one of this year's best. Rated R. —NM

THE HEARTBREAK KID—Ben Stiller's Eddie Cantrow is a commitment-phobic sporting goods salesman who marries his bombshell girlfriend (Cameron Diaz clone Malin Akerman), only to find she's not the woman of his dreams in a hilarious sequence of turn-offs (among them are her deviated septum, penchant for rough sex and broadcasting of bodily functions). When things take a turn for the worse on this honeymoon from hell, Cantrow discovers another lady on a Mexican beach. But the Farrellys' gross-out fuel only takes the film to the halfway mark, leaving its audience stalled. Rated R. —KJ

INTO THE WILD—Sean Penn delivers the finest film of his directorial career in telling the fascinating true story of Chris McCandless, a young man who, after graduating college in 1990, spends two years bumming around America before disappearing into the Alaskan wilderness. Evoking everything from The Odyssey to Easy Rider, this tale of a self-imposed initiatory ordeal will split viewers according to whether the main character is found sympathetic or not. But it asks all the right questions, and Penn's energetic direction is constantly inventive. Emile Hirsch gives a brave, ambitious performance as Chris. Rated R. —GC

THE JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB—Four romantically challenged women and one man form a club to read and discuss the six novels of Jane Austen; thereby begins a group excursion into the seriocomic realm of self-discovery disguised as literary analysis. The premise may sound more suitable for a book (like Karen Joy Fowler's bestseller on which this film is based), yet director Robin Swicord's screen adaptation is admirably fluid and engrossing, a delightful entertainment enlivened by fine work from actors including Maria Bello, Kathy Baker, Amy Brenneman and Hugh Dancy. Rated PG-13. —GC

THE KINGDOM—Director Peter Berg takes a venerable genre—the murder mystery—and infuses it with relevant, revelatory political and cultural import. An FBI team led by a hotshot agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) navigates a bureaucratic and diplomatic labyrinth to access to the site of a brutal attack on American civilians living in the heart of Saudi Arabia. Beyond its taut tableau, the film's lessons are more thought-provoking than didactic. Rated R —NM

MICHAEL CLAYTON—Playing a bottom-drawer Manhattan lawyer sucked into a web of corporate corruption, George Clooney gives a dead-on performance that may well be what gets this riveting, downbeat thriller to the Oscars. Yet the film's most striking virtue is Tony Gilroy's inventive script, which withholds just enough information to leave the viewer both off-center and thoroughly absorbed. Rated R. —GC

RENDITION—Hollywood tackles the ongoing human rights scandal of extraordinary rendition, with Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal headlining. Rated R.

SUPERBAD—This teen comedy, co-written by Knocked Up star Seth Rogen, tells of a couple of misfits (Jonah Hill and Michael Cera) out to get booze to help them hook up at a wild party. The language is unrelentingly foul, but there's a good, sweet movie about friendship underneath the dirty words. Rated R. —ZS

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS—This animated family film promises Jewish myth with Ben Kingsley narrating, Christian Slater as Moses and, best of all, Elliot Gould as the voice of God. Rated PG.

THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE—Danish director Susanne Bier, making her English-language debut, can shoot a hundred extreme close-ups of eyes, ears, lips and sundry other body parts—oh, wait, she does—but it still does not mask a storyline that considers itself more important than it actually is. Audrey (Halle Berry) is a recent widow who invites her late husband's drug-addict best friend (Benicio Del Toro, natch) to live with her and her two children. In her urge to create an art film, Bier never allows the audience to fully invest in the characters, which makes the overwrought emotions appear almost comical. Indeed, at times this melodramatic mishmash is reminiscent of the Lifetime movie Audrey is caught weeping over at one point. Berry is in way over her head and the weight on Del Toro to carry the film on his back causes his otherwise solid performance to occasionally drift toward high camp. Rated R. —NM

TYLER PERRY'S WHY DID I GET MARRIED?—Tyler Perry sticks to the tried and true formula of placing humor alongside tidbits of spirituality in his latest film. Here, four couples head for an annual Rocky Mountain retreat where they attempt to transform their marital squabbles into honeymoon bliss. Despite Perry's ability to pull together a A-list cast (Janet Jackson, Malik Yoba, Jill Scott), create Afro-centric characters and devise palpable emotional conflicts between husbands and wives, he is unable censor his own evangelical and misogynistic chirping. Much of what Perry deems wrong with marriage has to do with powerful women who speak their minds and clock in too many hours in the office—and never mind the men who cheat on their women or demand an open and available womb. Rated PG-13. —KJ

WE OWN THE NIGHT—Look simply to the presence of ol' Robert Duvall as a ramrod police chief-cum-crotchety dad for a whiff of the solid, yet unremarkable air to this cops-and-gangsters flick, which evokes everything from 1970s police dramas to The Departed to writer-director James Gray's own Little Odessa. Rated R. —NM
