  • The Mothman Prophecies

    Based on John Keel's personal account of paranormal events that occurred in Point Pleasant, W.Va. in the late ’60s, director Mark Pellington's jarring artistic vision is "submitted for your approval" in a beautifully horrific way — with Richard Gere, Debra Messing and Laura Linney.
  • ABC Africa

    Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami’s documentary on the plight of millions of Ugandan children orphaned by AIDS focuses on everyday life — children in school, young mothers getting nutritional instructions — eliciting a sadness much deeper than a series of more grisly sequences would.
  • La Cienaga

    Argentine director Lucretia Martel's feature debut (which translates as "the swamp") takes place during an oppressively hot and humid summer as an extended family slogs its way through the disruptions of soggy passion and the heated spasms of existential defeat.
  • Lantana

    Directed by Ray Lawrence (Bliss), this Australian film is a modern-day, stylistically pleasing film noir with solid acting and an intense depiction of the very serious repercussions of fear — with Barbara Hershey and Geoffrey Rush.
  • Rock the Parti
  • Rock the Parti

    Gold Chains — it's anything but Chain Reaction-inspired laptopology ... A great evening at the Necto with Traxx & Twonz ... & Porter Street welcomes new residents Heckle & Jeckle on Thursday nights.
  • I Am Sam

    Sean Penn, who puts his whole psyche and soul into a role, plays a man the intellectual age of a 7 year old who moves through the world riding on Beatles analogies. Though it has a slightly Hollywood-formulaic aura, this film is a labor of love on all levels — with Michelle Pfeiffer and precocious Dakota Fanning.
