MovieDescription
Sleuth
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Kenneth Branagh’s misguided remake, an aging cuckold (Michael Caine) invites his wife’s young lover (Jude Law) to his mansion for a murderous battle of wits. Branagh’s camera stunts and manic energy suggest that he doesn’t trust his audience to sit still for a conversation. (J.R.)
Sliding Doors
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were running late one morning and you missed the bus?
Slightly Scarlet
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
I have a real soft spot for Allan Dwan - a talented director who, for years, had to work with the worst junk imaginable. This is one of his better pieces of material - an adaptation of James M. Cain's "Love's Lovely Counterfiet" - but it was also, in Dwan's words, a "handcuff job," with the censors perverting many of the scenes in the name of "decency"

Slow Burn
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A district attorney (Ray Liotta) has a problem when an assistant confesses to killing a man. Itâ??s one of those movies that are so bad theyâ??re almost entertaining. Almost. (T.B.)
Slumdog Millionaire
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A young Mumbai striver (Dev Patel) survives the crushing poverty and daily tragedies of his birthplace and lands himself on the Hindi version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Like Mumbai, the mad, thrilling, perversely luminous Slumdog pulses and throbs with raw, unadulterated life. (M.S.)
Small Change
Released: 0000
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A gentle, multifaceted portrait of childhood by Francois Truffaut - not quite a return to the mood of The 400 Blows (it lacks some of the earlier film's tough, bittersweet qualities), but often reminiscent of it.
Small Screen Documentaries
Released: 0000
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Three 1960s American TV documentaries: The Scientist, Three Men on a Raft and Westerns European Style.
Small Soldiers

Boys and (increasingly) girls have become masters of their own universes, doling out death and destruction to their hearts' content.
Small Time Crooks
Released:
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Small Voices
Released: 2002
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This string-puller wonders if you can sing your way out of poverty
Smart Money
Released: 1931
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Edward G. Robinson and James Cagney star in the 1931 tale of gambling racketeers.
Smart People
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A widowed professor (Dennis Quaid) finds a new love (Sarah Jessica Parker) and deals with his dysfunctional family. The performances are good, but the film fails to get a fire going among its characters. (M.B.)
Smashing Pumpkins: If All Goes Wrong
Released: 2008
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Smashup
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Alcoholism and failed marriage in show business - a microcosm of Capitalist decay. Scriptwriter John Howard Lawson pours on the dialectics; Susan Hayward pours on the sudsy emoting. The soap wins in a walk. (M.W.)
Smile
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Smiles of A Summer's Night
Released: 1955
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of the great erotic comedies involving a worldly actress, her inept lawyer-lover, his overly romantic son and impressionable young wife, a lusty servant girl, a jaded Don Juan and a fierce countess. Along with The Magic Flute, this is the most engaging and amusing of Bergman's films. But although it strives for the later film's Mozartian lightness and sublety, Smiles Of A Summer Night has an inner blackness, a bitterness, a caustic moralism that gives it a haunting intensity. It's as if a Fench boudoir farce by Feydeau had somehow been filtered through the sensibility of a Kierkegaard . Audiences at the time, however, didn't notice the dark undertones; they reveled in the sex and the laughs, and it was this film that first made Bergman an international success.

Smoke Signals

Smokey and the Bandit
Released: 1977
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The comedy about two rich Texans who hire a truck driver (Burt Reynolds) to haul a huge shipment of Coors beer from Texas to Georgia, which was prohibited when the film was released in 1977.
Smokin' Aces
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A mafioso (Jeremy Piven) is marked for death after striking a prosecution deal; enter the federal agents (Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta), the bail bondsmen (Ben Affleck), the attorneys (Jason Bateman) and myriad assassins. This Tarantino-style action film is partly plodding procedural fare, but the other part is enjoyably weird. (M.I.)

Snake Eyes
Released: 1998
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
De Palma's voyeuristic gifts are abundantly clear right from the start of his stunning new movie.

Snitch
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A man (Dwayne Johnson) tries to get a drug dealer arrested after his son (Rafi Gavron) receives a 10-year prison sentence for a minor offense. The cast is excellent, but the film can’t decide if it’s an action flick or an ideological drama. (L.B.)
Snow Angels
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A teenager (Michael Angarano) deals with both romance and his parents’ breakup in another singular movie by David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls). Despite a few slips into melodrama, Green’s feel for the fumbling ambivalence of human conversation is a wonder to behold. (J.R.)
