    JULY 27 & 28 (6:45 & 9:10)

    SSTTAATTEE OOFF PPLLAAYYKevin MacDonald (USA, 2009, 127 mins; PG)

    Cast: Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, RobinWright Penn, Jason Bateman, Jeff Daniels, and Helen Mirren

    A CRACKERJACK POLITICAL THRILLER! Baltimore Sun

    AN INTELLIGENT ADULT THRILLER ABOUT THE DEATH OFNEWSPAPERS. Salon.com

    ! State of Play borrows from several sources besides the2003 British miniseries its based on, including All the PresidentsMen and The Wire. It stars Russell Crowe as an old-school reporterwho teams up with newbie blogger Rachel McAdams to find outwho killed the mistress of a congressman who was also his collegeroommate (Ben Affleck). Director Macdonald breaks no new sus-pense-flick ground: dark shadows, dangerous parking lot, ominousmusic, check. But the writers, including current master of malfea-sance Tony Gilroy, and the set designer clearly know newspapers,down to the squalid workstations and ancient computers. Detailslike these, along with the editing, which is quick-paced withoutbeing frenetic, and the strong cast raise the game of an otherwisestraightforward thriller. Now Magazine

    JULY 29 & 30 (6:45 & 9:15)

    DDEEPPAARRTTUURREESSDirector: Yojiro Takita (Japan, 2008, 131 mins; Japanese with subtitles; rated G)

    ACADEMY AWARD WINNER! BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM!

    ! A jobless classical musician takes job in encoffinment, the Japanese ritual preparation of the dead. The film is lovely,moving and wise, and the actors embody their rolesthe young man, his fond wife, his wise boss, and the bosss encouraging, qui-etly sad assistant. Roger Ebert

    The brainchild of its leading actor,onetime boy-band member MasahiroMotoki, Departures turns out to be adelightful surprise, at once an engag-ing dramedy and an eloquent socialstatement. The stylized ceremonies all performed with grieving rela-tives in attendance turn out torequire nearly as much delicacy asplaying a cello. The rituals have a realbeauty to them. This lovely, senti-mental film will absolutely delight theart-house crowd. Multiplexes will becrowded with noisy summer films,from which Departures will representa sophisticated and elegant depar-ture. NPR

    AUG 2, 3, 4 (7:00 only)

    eeaarrtthhAlastair Fothergill & Mark Linfield (UK/Germany, 2009, 90 minutes; rated G) narrated by James Earl Jones

    GORGEOUSLY PHOTOGRAPHED! Washington Post

    IT SHOULDNT BE MISSED. Los Angeles Times

    THE SPECTACLE IS STIRRING. The Wall Street Journal

    A RAVISHING DISTILLATION OF THE SERIES PLANET EARTH Variety

    With its cozy references to animal moms and dads and its delicate avoidance of disturbing imagery in the depiction oflife and death in the wild, this super-duper deluxe nature documentary (the first title from the new Disneynature label ofenvironmentally conscious crowd-pleasers) clearly aims to recruit young viewers as conservationists. The pitch works foradults, too. Earth, a showpiece from the BBC team that made Planet Earth, is spectacularly photographed, gracefully edit-ed, and effectively matter-of-fact in demonstrating the effects of climate change. James Earl Jones narrates with the author-ity of Adam naming the animals. Entertainment Weekly

    AUG 5 & 6 (7:00 & 9:15)TTOOKKYYOO!!Directors: Michel Gondry, Leos Carax, Bong Joon-ho(France/Japan/South Korea, 2008, 112 mins; Japanese with subtitles)

    A STRANGE, DIVERTING PLEASURE. Philadelphia Inquirer

    A fun jaunt around the city by three leading directors?Now theres a bargain. Los Angeles Times

    Gathering a bunch of top-flight directors to make a collectionof shorts around a specific place is a blockbuster idea. Butpulling together disparate shorts is an experiment that rarelyworks as well as it does in Tokyo! The opening piece of thetriptych of films all set in Tokyo, is by director Michel Gondry(Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). In his story, a youngcouple (Ayako Fujitani & Ryo Kase) move to Tokyo and crash ina friends postage stamp-size studio. The second story, byFrench filmmaker Leos Carax, is even more fantastical: it cen-ters on a grotesque figure emerging from the Tokyo sewers andcausing havoc. It satirizes immigration fears, terrorism, Frenchlawyers - while remaining defiantly absurd. The third story byBong Joon-ho makes a fable out of the life of a Tokyo shut-inor hikikomori, played by Teruyuki Kagawa. The overall project succeeds at offering three tantalizing filmsfor the price of one movie ticket. Thats value. San Francisco Chronicle

    JULY 26 (7:10 only)

    AADDOORRAATTIIOONNAtom Egoyan (Canada, 2008, 101 mins; PG)ECUMENICAL JURY PRIZE WINNER!

    Cannes Film Festival, 2008In this profound and provocative exploration of cultural inher-itance, communications technology and the roots and morali-ty of terrorism, Atom Egoyan nimbly wades into an ideologicalminefield without detonating an explosion. Its story of a highschool class assignment that becomes a minor cause clbreis a rigorously structured variant of the everything-is-connect-ed-to-everything school of filmmaking that has producedmovies like Babel and Crash. But unlike those moviesAdoration, Mr. Egoyans finest film since The SweetHereafter (1997), doesnt strain to maintain a pretense ofnaturalism. In every scene you feel the controlling hand of Mr.Egoyan who wrote, produced and directed it. The New YorkTimes

    AUG 7 & 8 (7:10 & 9:25)

    TTEERRMMIINNAATTOORR SSAALLVVAATTIIOONNDirector: McG (USA, 2009, 115 mins; 14A frequent violence) Cast: Christian Bale, Anton Yelchin, SamWorthington, Bryce Dallas Howard, Common,Jadagrace, Moon Bloodgood, and HelenaBonham Carter

    Judgment Day has come and gone. The artificialintelligence network Skynet controls the army ofTerminators that roam the post-apocalyptic land-scape, killing or collecting humans where theyhide in the desolate cities and deserts. Only oneman saw Judgment Day coming. One man, whosedestiny has always been intertwined with the fateof human existence: John Connor. Now the worldis on the brink of the future that Connor has beenwarned about all his life. But something totallynew has shaken his belief that humanity stands achance of winning this war: the appearance ofMarcus Wright, a stranger from the past whoselast memory is of being on death row beforeawakening in this strange, new world. WarnerBros. Pictures

    JULY 31 & AUG 1 (7:10 & 9:20)

    XX--MMEENN OORRIIGGIINNSS:: WWOOLLVVEERRIINNEEDirector: Gavin Hood (Australia/USA/Canada, 2009, 108 mins; 14A violence) Cast: Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, RyanReynolds, Taylor Kitsch, Will.i.am, DannyHuston, Dominic Monaghan, and Daniel Henney

    Hugh Jackman reprises the role that made him asuperstar - as the fierce fighting machine whopossesses amazing healing powers, retractableclaws and a primal fury. Leading up to the eventsof X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells thestory of Wolverines epically violent and romanticpast, his complex relationship with Victor Creed,and the ominous Weapon X program. Along theway, Wolverine encounters many mutants, bothfamiliar and new, including surprise appearancesby several legends of the X-Men universe whoseappearances in the film series have long beenanticipated. 20th Century Fox
