Opening This Week

BURN AFTER READING—A CIA agent abruptly dumped from the Balkans desk (John Malkovich) fumes that the agency is all bureaucracy and no mission. Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt, a couple of clueless personal trainers, stumble onto a computer disc of his bitter, rambling autobiography, which they fancy they can turn into ready cash—somehow. Burn After Reading depicts an irritable society where everyone is going ballistic, shrieking "What the f---?" at the telephone, at the boss, at the traffic, at their spouses and sex partners and futilely at the whole world. People exercise and hydrate frantically, joylessly, the same way they have sex, and blather about "reinvention." Like an intricate musical contraption, the people surveilling, stalking and intriguing will cross paths in writer/ directors Joel and Ethan Coen's signature style of bizarre characters and slashing humor. A phone call, a car, a gun or a hatchet will be wielded as paranoia inevitably intersects with delusion. Rated R. —LB

THE EDGE OF HEAVEN—After the punkish energies of his acclaimed 2004 breakthrough film, Head-On, young Turkish-German director Fatih Akin adapts a more nuanced, novelistic approach in this brooding drama about the intersecting lives of several Germans and Turks. Centered on Nejat (a charismatic performance by Baki Davrak), a young German literature professor of Turkish extraction, the story contains tragic deaths and illicit love affairs, but its main thrust is to contemplate the convergence of the West and Islam, and its conclusion are surprisingly, if very guardedly, optimistic. Intelligent and exactingly crafted, it features R.W. Fassbinder's great star Hanna Schygulla in a supporting role. Not rated. Read our review.GC

KABLUEY—In this ode to emotional isolation, underachiever Salman (Scott Prendergast) takes a humiliating job as a blue-suited corporate spokesman to help make ends meet for the family of his brother. Rated PG-13.

RIGHTEOUS KILL—Evoking the macabre, uneasy collaborations between Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi during the latter days of their careers, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino share the screen as aging NYPD cops-on-the-edge. They're on the trail of a serial killer exacting vigilante justice on rapists, pedophile priests and drug dealers (including rap impresario Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson) who managed to beat their raps. The first and by no means only problem with the ponderous screenplay by Russell Gewirtz (Inside Man) is that it forecasts the identity of the purported killer up front, ensuring that either the rest of the film is a gigantic waste of time or that there is going to be a twist ending you can see coming a mile away—and the film will still be a gigantic waste of time. Director Jon Avnet helms this police procedural with the dexterity of a lumberjack as one half-baked, implausible scene after another is strung together to form a head-scratching, tedious saunter through Madame Tussaud's. The only extraordinary sights to behold are Pacino's efforts to still tease up his increasing thinning bangs and De Niro laboring to propel his expanding girth against the Earth's gravitational pull. Rated R. —NM

TROUBLE THE WATER—For anyone who thinks they've seen all they need or want to see about Hurricane Katrina (that would include most of us, presumably), think again: This terrific, engrossing documentary offers a revelatory first-person view of the epochal disaster and its aftermath. Using home-video footage taken by a poor inhabitant of the Ninth Ward, plucky aspiring rapper Kimberly Rivers Roberts, filmmakers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal follow the inundation as a gripping drama. What's most striking are not the political implications of all this (though they are plentiful) but the character, resourcefulness and spirit of those afflicted. Seldom has a film done so much to humanize a large-scale tragedy. Not rated. —GC

TYLER PERRY'S THE FAMILY THAT PREYS—Wealthy socialites go on a road trip to discover themselves and escape the self-centered schemes and affairs of their children. Then they all learn a valuable lesson. Rated PG-13.

THE WOMEN—In this remake of the 1939 George Cukor adaptation of Claire Booth Luce's play of the same name, Meg Ryan, Annette Bening and friends talk about their relationships. Rated PG-13.

Current Releases

BANGKOK DANGEROUS—No. 1 in America, with a bullet. Rated R.

BRIDESHEAD REVISITED—Adapting Evelyn Waugh's celebrated novel about a young painter who, in the England of the 1920s and '30s, becomes embroiled with an aristocratic family through an infatuation with its troubled younger son, director Julian Jarrold turns out a plush, tasteful movie that's far less adventurous than the landmark TV adaptation of 1981. Rated PG-13. —GC

THE DARK KNIGHTWhile terrific, Christopher Nolan's latest Batman tale is not the masterpiece many would proclaim. The storyline is at times bloated and meandering, but the late Heath Ledger's performance is so mesmerizing that it transcends the real-life tragedy surrounding his final bow: He emotes equal parts menace, humor, eeriness, melancholy and even charisma. Rated PG-13. —NM

DEATH RACE—Bereft of a sensible plot, two-dimensional characters or any glint of eight decades of cinematic evolution, this is a testosterone geyser full of muscles, cars and just enough slow-motion T&A to tide you over between explosions. Rated R. —NM

ELEGY—Adapted from Philip Roth's The Dying Animal, Elegy stars Ben Kingsley as David Kepesh, a Columbia professor and aging ladies' man, and Penélope Cruz as Consuela, the beautiful young student with whom he falls in love. Although acutely intelligent, this isn't for everyone; its restricted point of view tends to deny Consuela a voice of her own. Rated R. —DF

FROZEN RIVER—This low-budget first film by writer-director Courtney Hunt is an extraordinarily accomplished debut that, in the spirit of Neorealism, combines piercing social observation with impassioned storytelling. Inspired by news stories of women who engage in smuggling operations across the frozen St. Lawrence River to support their kids, the film follows Eddy (Melissa Leo), a strapped, hard-bitten mother of two who forms an uneasy partnership with Native American Lila (Misty Upham) to ferry illegal immigrants from Canada to the U.S. Rated R. —GC

THE HOUSE BUNNY—Anna Faris is a Playboy bunny who gets kicked out of Hef's mansion and becomes house mother to a sorority of misfits. When the Taliban holds their next recruitment drive, this film will be their most valuable tool. Rated PG-13. —NM

MAMMA MIA!—The film adaptation of the long-running musical, based on ABBA's songbook, is a garish affair that uneasily treads the line between show-stopping and surreal. Most of the film is histrionics and caterwauling—I'd rather hear a Ringo Starr revue than one more note from Pierce Brosnan. Rated PG-13. —NM

MAN ON WIRE—Both a tribute to human audacity and a nostalgic valentine to the Twin Towers, Man on Wire tells the story of Philippe Petit, a hyperactive, attention-seeking acrobat who, before the Towers were even built, decided he would erect a tightrope between them and walk on it. The film's appeal comes from a remarkable wealth of archival footage that captures the manic group in the 1970s, from the rehearsals in a French field to preliminary stunts over the Notre Dame cathedral and Sydney Harbour to the glorious day in New York. Rated PG-13. —DF

MIRRORS—A remake of the little-known South Korean flick Into the Mirror, Alexandre Aja's retelling, filmed in Romania, splits his tale between suspense, gore and soft-core porn. Rated R. —KJ

OUTSOURCED—The delightful Outsourced is the year's best romantic comedy by far. A manufacturer of "kitsch for rednecks" outsources catalogue sales to an Indian call center, and sends Todd (Josh Hamilton), the American supervisor, abroad to train his replacement. Writer-director John Jeffcoat must write from bemused experience, as he shows Todd's initial alarm at chaos and poverty dissolving as he understands the vibrant social connectedness that makes his American wealth, computer solitaire games and estrangement from his parents seem meaningless compared to India's occasionally baffling, but enfolding embrace. Rated PG-13. —LB

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS—The principal miracle of this superb stoner comedy is that erstwhile indie director David Gordon Green manages to sustain, even elevate, the Judd Apatow brand without compromising his filmmaking style. Rated R. —NM

ROCK ON!!! —Rock and roll melodrama becomes the latest Western export, as the band Magik's riches to rags to riches story unfolds. Indian music has zestfully absorbed American pop since the rumba, and composers Shankar Ehsaan Loy nail the boy band sound with Magik's catchy hits. Farhan, an accomplished director,makes his on-screen debut, and he's not bad, and Arjun's sulky sex appeal has a George Harrison vibe. American movie audiences may be jaded, but it's refreshing to see this familiar arc played as if it's being invented, and for Magik's audience, it is. Not rated. —LB

TELL NO ONE—While the first half of this French thriller is plausible and well-crafted enough to hold our interest, the film's resolution is a pile-up of contrivance, culminating in a set of explanations and horse-jumping characters that haven't been in fashion since Murder, She Wrote. Not rated. —DF

TRAITOR—Sprung from a prison for terrorists in Yemen, an American-educated Muslim named Samir (Don Cheadle) joins a group aiming to wage jihad against Europe and then America. But is he a sincere warrior or a double (or triple) agent? A geopolitical thriller in the now heavily populated Three Days of the Condor tradition, Jeffrey Rachmanoff's film delivers the action and suspense as effectively as any Jason Bourne caper. Rated PG-13. —GC

TROPIC THUNDER—A wildly funny film about the making of a Platoon-style war movie in Southeast Asia, this Ben Stiller-directed "action comedy" also has the distinction of being the sharpest satire of Hollywood since Altman's The Player. The main satiric target here is not any particular war movie but current Hollywood's central power dynamic, which pits narcissistic stars like those hilariously played by Stiller, Robert Downey, Jr. and Jack Black against avaricious moguls such as the type-A screamer here brought to astonishing life by Tom Cruise in a fat suit.. Rated R. —GC

VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA—Woody Allen takes his droll romantic pessimism to Spain, following two young Americans on a summer abroad. The film jumps to life when two Spaniards, Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, are on screen, suggesting another, better movie for Woody to make in future. This one is pleasant and diverting enough, but hardly ranks with his best; its use of Barcelona and environs is strictly of the tourist-brochure variety. PG-13. —GC
