MovieDescription
Miss Potter
Released: 2006
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this delightful movie, Renee Zellweger plays Beatrix Potter, the author of The Tale of Peter the Rabbit and other children's stories that have continued to enchant us for over 100 years. Although Potter's life wasn't exactly packed with drama, it had its moments, all of them infused with storybook charm by the filmmakers. (K.W.)
Miss Representation
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An exploration of women in America shows their underrepresentation in positions of power.
Miss Sadie Thompson
Released: 1955
Rated:
Now Playing? No
More Rainfall, from the ragged edge of Somerset Maugham. (M.W.)
Missing
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Costa-Gavras (Z, State of Siege) brings his genius for vigorous, pungent, political melodrama to bear on the disappearance of a young American, Charlie Horman, during the overthrow of the Allende regime in Chile. Fast, hair-raising, played with burning conviction by the entire cast, this film is a more-than-convincing indictment of American power politics, of the crushing of the innocent in the vise of history. (M.W.)
Mission to Mars
Released:
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The movie is consistently entertaining and sometimes captivating. Who could ask for anything more?
Mission to Moscow
Released: 1943
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The UW's Cinematheque's summer series
Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this installment, Tom Cruise’s agent is tasked with penetrating the Kremlin and preventing World War III. The brilliantly constructed film is the best of the franchise thus far, stretching itself in ways that only new director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) might have thought of. (M.S.)
Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this installment, Tom Cruise’s agent is tasked with penetrating the Kremlin and preventing World War III. The brilliantly constructed film is the best of the franchise thus far, stretching itself in ways that only new director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) might have thought of. (M.S.)
Mission: Impossible 2
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Like James Bond, he's a thrill-seeker and a skirt-chaser.
Mission: Impossible III
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Mississippi
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of those movies where the parts are greater than the sum of the whole: a youthful Harry Lillis Crosby, a god score, and Fields' infamous rigged poker game.
Mississippi Mermaid
Released: 1969
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Like the Bride Wore Black, another Cornell Woolrich thriller, Gallicized and adapted by Francois Truffaut. Truffaut, of course, focuses more on elements of psychological romance and "love on the run" than on suspense and murder. (M.W.)
Mister Cory
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Glib hustler finds true love. Early Blake Edwards, just finding his style. (M.W.)
Mister Lonely
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Harmony Korine, the former It Boy of off-off-Hollywood filmmaking (Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy), returns to the Cinema du Poète Maudit with this sweetly sad portrait of a colony of celebrity impersonators who'd rather be a fake somebody than a real nobody. Especially given its major subplot about a flock of nuns who jump out of airplanes without parachutes to test their faith, the movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense, except on the metaphysical plane, but Diego Luna and Samantha Morton bring a touching innocence to "Michael Jackson" and "Marilyn Monroe." (K.W.)
Mobsters, Inc.
Released: 2003
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Moby Dick
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Herman Melville was a best-selling novelist when Moby Dick was published in 1851, but this grand, soaring allegory about mad Captain Ahab and the Great White Whale was so poorly received it nearly ruined him. The "respectable" critics hated it; they thought it wild and excessive, which should tell you something about "respectable" critics. John Huston's adaptation of this masterpiece, with a poetic scenario by Ray Bradbury, is good in many respects, but it has a puzzlingly bad piece of casting: Gregory Peck, who should have played Starbuck, is out of his depth as Ahab, a role that would have been perfect for Huston's old friend, Humphrey Bogart.
Mod Fuck Explosion
Released: 2002
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Model Shop
Released: 1969
Rated: M
Now Playing? Yes
Jacques Demy's 1969 film about an American man about to be drafted for the Vietnam War (Gary Lockwood) and an exotic woman he meets (Anouk Aimee).
Modern Romance
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Modesty Blaise
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on a popular British comic strip of the day, this film is a vicious send up of the entire James Bond mystique, with Losey pushing everything past parody into vitriolic mockery. Made by a man who obviously hates the Bond films, and regards the as amoral and corrupt, it may be, paradoxically, one of the best of the whole genre. (M.W.)
Moebius
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mogambo
Released: 1953
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ford, uncharacteristically, remakes Victor Fleming's Red Dust - which also starred Gable. Less steam; more salt.
Moliere
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Director Laurent Tirard fills in one of the major blanks in the French playwright's life: the time when he briefly disappeared from sight to forge his artistic soul. The problem is that the movie itself, which sends the young Molière (a miscast Romain Duris) off to the chateau of a wealthy merchant who needs help wooing a mistress, isn't funny. (K.W.)
Moloch
Released: 1999
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The UW Cinametheque begins one of the most demanding series in its illustrious history
Momentos
Released: 1981
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Mommie Dearest
Released: 1981
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hell hath no fury like a daughter scorned - or Mildred Pierced. (M.W.)
Mommy, What's Wrong?
Released: 1997
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mon Oncle
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
More of M. Hulot's endless, losing battles with the modern, mechanized world. This second film in the series won Tati an Oscar for Best Foreign Film; it has much of the seraphic, cracked comic grace of both Mr. Hulot's Holiday and Playtime.
Mon Oncle D'Amerique
Released: 1980
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Another of Alain Resnais' beautiful little cinematic time sculptures; not to be missed.
Mona Lisa Smile
Released: 2003
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Julia Roberts plays a bohemian art teacher at Wellesley in the '50s
