In Francisco Vargas’ dramatic thriller, set amid the peasant uprisings of the 1970s, Angel Tavira plays a musician/farmer who comes up with his own plan for liberating a munitions supply hidden in a cornfield. The movie may be a little too arty for its subject, but Tavira gives his character just the right amount of stoic wisdom. (K.W.)
The Virgin Spring
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
14th Century Sweden: In a fairy tale atmosphere of glistening forests whose pockets of shadow seethe with hidden monsters, Bergman spins out a somber and frightening tale of rape, murder, and revenge. Based on the ancient ballad, "Tores dotteri Vange," and shot in a style fairly obviously inspired by Kurosawa's "Rashomon." One of Bergman's most violent and picturesque films - and also the first of his movies on which his great collaborator, Sven Nykvist, served as head cameramen.

The Visitor
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A hard-hearted economics prof (Richard Jenkins) reclaims his soul through his interaction with two illegal Muslim immigrants he finds squatting in his apartment. The film is a study in understatement, often communicating powerfully through the absence of words or actions. (M.B.)
The Voice of the Turtle (One for the Book)

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Courtesy of John Van Druten's stage play, our 40th President tries his hand at sophisticated sex comedy. Never let it be said the fellow isn't game.

Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A lonely, depressed, dope-dealing kid (Josh Peck) on Manhattan's Upper East Side can't quite lift himself out of his high school funk. His relationship with his dope-fiend psychiatrist (Ben Kingsley) is one of the great odd-couple pairings, each of them the other's client. (K.W.)
The Wagons Roll At Night
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A remake of Warner Brothers paradigmatic boxing melodrama, Kid Galahad; The boxing background was jettisoned, and the basic story transferred to a circus (the hero himself becomes a lion tamer). Pretty good. (M.W.)

The War Between Men and Women

Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An overwrought pseudo-epic about an assassin (Jang Dong-gun) forced into exile in the old American West when he refuses to kill his rival clan's only surviving member. It’s a not-quite-successful but visually entertaining attempt to merge the tropes of the classic Western with those of the sword-wielding chopsocky genre. (M.S.)
The Warriors
Released: 1979
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
New York street gangs run amok in Walter Hill's intense 1979 film.

Now Playing? No
The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this ripping yarn, a young Scottish dreamer (Alex Etel) finds an egg that hatches into the Loch Ness Monster. It’s a family film in the best sense, with excellent CGI effects and an expressive performance by Etel. (M.S.)
