MovieDescription
The Miracle Worker
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Helen Keller, blind and deaf, sealed into a world of terrors and confusion it seems no one can penetrate; Annie Sullivan, her strong-willed, ruthless, passionately determined teacher. Films on subjects like this tend to be saccharine, false; in contrast, The Miracle Worker is a powerhouse -- so strong and vivid, it actually does inspire you. (M.W.)
The Mirror
Released: 2002
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Mirror Crack'd
Released: 1980
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A murder in movieland is cracked by the intrepid spinster-sleuth, Miss Marple (here played - in perhaps a dry run for "Murder, She Wrote" - by Angela Lansbury). The fun is supposedly in the self-parodying presence of actual '50s superstars (Taylor, Hudson, Novak, Curtis); the script is by Barry Sandler (Making Love, Crimes of Passion).
The Misfits
Released: 1961
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Arthur Miller intended this screenplay - a fable of love, the pursuit of wild horses, alienation and the preciousness of life - as a love offering for his then-wife, Marilyn Monroe. Her role, a divorcee who falls among a band of Reno cowboys, was intended to incarnate the life force, beauty, Nature itself. But while the cameras rolled, Marilyn was destroying herself with pills, Clark Gable was edging nearer his fatal heart attack and Monty Clift was preparing his own last plunge down the cliffs of self-abuse. The misfits now seems haunted with death. (M.W.)

After a botched assassination nearly takes his life, he orders his right-hand man to recruit a group of expert bodyguards (Anthony Wong, Francis Ng, Roy Cheung, Lam Suet, Jackie Lui) to protect him from any further attacks. The hired gunmen quickly form a brotherhood, but their loyalty is tested when Lung discovers that one of them is having an affair with his wife, and he orders the others to kill him.
The Mist
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this Stephen King tale, a freak storm unleashes bloodthirsty creatures on a small Maine town. It’s an old-fashioned scary movie that, when not too preachy, features magnificent scenes with the stunningly crafted beasties. (M.B.)

Ninotchka's scenarist (minus Billy Wilder) hand George Cukor another of the 1948-1954 cycle of Manhattan romantic comedies which probably (with his '30s literary and stage adaptations) comprise his best work.

The Monte Carlo Story
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The casino courtship, in glittering Monte Carlo, of two compulsive gamblers. Interestingly, Vittorio DeSica was a compulsive gambler off screen as well, and he blamed his gambling and consequent debts for his paucity of films in the Shoestring Bicycle Thieves mode. (M.W.)
The Monuments Men
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A motley group of World War II soldiers (George Clooney, Bill Murray, Matt Damon) must rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves. The movie's loaded with great scenes, terrific performances and a nice blend of suspense and comedy, but it feels like a set of vignettes rather than a cohesive story. (L.B.)

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No

The title of this well-made documentary comes from Henry Kissinger's assessment of former defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg, who in 1971 leaked Pentagon documents revealing the lies undergirding the war in Vietnam. Ellsberg's action was heroic; it was also the right thing to do. (B.L.)
