The Railway Man

The Railway Man

"[Firth's] modesty prevents The Railway Man from turning mawkishly sentimental once Lomax embraces the concept of forgiveness, and you can believe it's possible." (Stephen Holden, NY Times)

The extraordinary true story of Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labor camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax discovers that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.

Jonathan Teplitzky. 2013. 116 m. R. UK/Australia. The Weinstein Company.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel

"An exquisitely calibrated, deadpan-comic miniature that expands in the mind and becomes richer and more tragic." (David Edelstein,

The star-studded latest from the quirky and talented Wes Anderson recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (newcomer Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

Wes Anderson. 2014. 100 m. R. Germany/UK, English/French. Fox Searchlight.

Under the Skin

Under the Skin

"...come in with no preconceptions, no expectations, and just give yourself over to the primal ooze of the experience filmmaker Jonathan Glazer has created and Scarlett Johansson has made brilliantly, unnervingly real." (Betsy Sharkey, LA Times)

The latest from Jonathan Glazer (Birth, Sexy Beast) stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien seductress who is as hot as she is cold. Under the Skin, referred to as "artisanal science fiction" by Grantland's Wesley Morris, has many critics comparing Glazer to Roeg, Kubrick and other masters of the craft.

Jonathan Glazer. 2013. 108 m. R. UK. A24 Films.

Jodorowsky's Dune

Jodorowsky's Dune

"We get an idea of what could have been via the colossal illustrated screenplay still lovingly held by Jodorowsky, who is every bit the dreamer in his 80s that he was in his youth." (Peter Howell, Toronto Star)

In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo and The Holy Mountain) began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12 year old son alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, Jodorowsky's adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel Dune was poised to change cinema forever. This is the story of the film that might have been.

Frank Pavich. 2013. 85 m. PG-13. USA, Various languages with subtitles. Sony Pictures Classics.

Fading Gigolo

Fading Gigolo

"What puts Fading Gigolo over the top is the presence of Allen, who's just the sort of earthy, fast-talking foil the moony Turturro needs." (David Edelstein, Vulture)

Fioravante (John Turturro) decides to become a professional Don Juan as a way of making money to help his cash-strapped friend, Murray (Woody Allen). Soon the duo quickly finds themselves caught up in the crosscurrents of love and money.

John Turturro. 2014. 98 m. R. USA. Millenium Entertainment.
