M 1981
Released: 0000
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Through the shadowy concrete streets of Berlin - on the eye of Hitler's last putsch - runs a fat, perspiring little man in the grip of horrifying compulsion. He murders small children. Hunting him are the city's outraged citizenry, the police, and an even more merciless foe: the criminal underworld, which has vowed he will not live out the night when he falls into their hands. As the desperate little man, Peter Lorre - who modeled his role after the real-life Dusseldorf Strangler - creates an unforgettable archetype of psycho pathology: brutal, terrified, childlike, swinging wildly between remorse and sadism, and finally, screaming for his life, before a kangaroo court of thieves and murderers that seems an eerie prototype of the Nazi regime; "I can't help myself! I can't stop!" "M" is Fritz Lang's finest achievement, and a matchless classic of pure, paranoid suspense.

Robert Altman's 1970 masterpiece about hipster combat surgeons in a Korean War medical unit creates a painful, hilarious contrast between bloody warfare and the wacked-out sensibility the surgeons develop to deal with it. (M.W.)

Macao
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Nearly the last gasp of Josef Von Sternberg's glowing, lustrous elegantly perverse and immaculate romanticism, which cast its strange sheen over what might have been a middling intriguer about a sleepy eyed adventurer and a sloe-eyed temptress in steamy Macao - the kind of stuff studio head Howard Hughes loved. Nicholas Ray directed, uncredited, about a third of the movie (one of the favorite parlor sports of auteurist critics has been trying to guess which director was responsible for what), trying, he says, to "keep the faith with Joe's style." Sternberg sourly commented: "Instead of fingers in the pie, half a dozen clowns inserted various portions of their anatomy" into the movie. I've always liked Macao, though it's certainly a mess - a film, perhaps, only for insomniacs, Mitchum fans, devotees of fancy trash and rarefied cinematic estheticians who haven't been seduced by semiotics.
MacArthur
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Old soldiers never die. They just get 10 million production packages from Charlie Bludhorn. (M.W.)
Macbeth
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The oddest of all Shakespearean films, shot on a shoestring with borrowed costumes, on old Republic Western sets (rumor has it that Welles put masks on the back of his extras' heads so he could shoot the battle scenes simultaneously from two directions), with the actors speaking in a weird Scottish burr. It's also one of the greatest. Welles' vision is primitive, horrific, wildly inventive, enacted in a barbaric, bloody world made of pasteboard and shadows; it's the most poetic of all the screen Macbeths.
MacGruber
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A feature-length version of the Saturday Night Live sketch about an ineffectual action hero (Will Forte) trying to dismantle a ticking bomb. It goes by in a wash of uninspired action and unmemorable comedy. (K.J.)
Machete
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A violent badass (Danny Trejo) witnesses the murder of his family in Mexico, then winds up a day laborer in Texas, where the anti-immigration movement is in full flourish. The entertaining characters -- and the self-awareness -- keep Robert Rodriguez' "Mexploitation" film fresh. (M.B.)
Machete Kills
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
When a madman in Mexico (Demian Bichir) threatens to launch a missile at the U.S., a detective turned spy (Danny Trejo) must stop him. Director Robert Rodriguez uses '70s film gimmicks in smart, funny ways, particularly to underscore the problems today’s movies often have with treating women as disposable props. (M.J.)
Mad City Chickens
Released: 2008
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Mad Hot Ballroom
Released: 2005
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
New York City kids compete in a city-wide ballroom dance competition in this documentary
Mad Max
Released: 1979
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Cops and robbers in a motorized dance of death on the Aussie highways. A little more slapdash and less slam-bang than George Miller's next film, The Road Warrior. Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is the latest in the series.
Mad Money
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Queen Latifah, Diane Keaton and Katie Holmes star in a lightweight comedy about women who plot to steal Federal Reserve money that’s about to be destroyed. It’s an advertisement for unfettered capitalism, with heroes who covet and take without shame. (J.R.)
Mad Wednesday
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Harold Lloyd's last film, a neglected little comedy gem in which Preston Sturges tries, with great success, to revive the bric and lighthearted thrust of silent comedy. The film begins with a wonderful reel from Lloyd's The Freshman, then abruptly skips to the same character 20 years later: a middle-aged, nondescript office worker, his buoyancy and optimism drained, who's about to face catastrophe. But luck, love, lions and a very mad Wednesday all intervene. A delight.
Madagascar
Released: 2005
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this terrifically silly cartoon, a group of animals (voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith and David Schwimmer) escape the Central Park zoo and try to adapt to life in the wild. The film's lunatic pace, left-field pop-culture reference and physics-defying comedy are worthy of classic Looney Tunes. (K.J.)

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In the latest animated installment, the homesick animal foursome wreak havoc in a Monte Carlo casino and take cover with a traveling circus. Low on originality, but amusing. (M.B.)

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The sequel explores kid-friendly lessons about individuality versus fitting in, as the four citified animal friends crash land in east Africa and find a land teeming with others like themselves. More quirkiness would help adult viewers, but young children will enjoy this piece of sweet cartoon candy. (T.E.)

Madame Rosa
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A Parisian death camp survivor - once beautiful, now gone to elegant seed - and her favorite "son": a quick-witted Arab boy named Momo. Sensitive, low-key, poignant - with a magnificent performance by Simone Signoret as Madame Rosa. (M.W.)
Madame Sata

Rated: NR

Madame X
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Umpteenth remake of the soaper where a brilliant lawyer defends his own mother (unbeknownst) at a murder trial. The movie was offered to Douglas Sirk, but was directed by David Lowell Rich (who went on to make Airport '79) - which is going from the sublime to the ridiculous.
