A Stranger in the Kingdom (1999, 112 min., PG-13)

As we all know, the more idyllic a rural area is portrayed in a movie, the more certain it is to have its “veneer of tranquility shattered by powerful conflicts,” generally involving sex, murder, or both. ...

Stranger Than Fiction (2006, 113 min., PG-13)

A good movie but not a great one, Stranger Than Fiction is reminiscent of the films of Charlie Kaufman but lacks that writer’s conceptual rigor and imaginative power.

The Stranger (1992)

With Agantuk/The Stranger (made in 1992 and released a few months before the director's death), internationally acclaimed Indian director Ray probes the domestic scene even further than in his previous films, examining the nature of identity ...

Strangers in Good Company (1991, 100 min., PG)

They are eight women in a school bus, seven of them elderly and one with a badly sprained ankle, stranded in the Canadian woods. Scott uses documentary-style camera work and the acting is improvisational. Scott found ...

Strangers With Candy (2006, 87 min., R)

The high school comedy of co-creators Dinello, Colbert, and Sedaris is completely over the top in its audacity and absurdity.

The Strangers (2008, 90 min., R)

First-time writer/director Bertino, a UT alum, scares up a solid horror-film success with this debut outing.

An addict's life is saved by a feline friend

Street Fighter (1994, 102 min., PG-13)

Street Knight (1993)

Actioners are basically revenge fantasies acted out in different narrative configurations. The genre is basically dominated by wooden leading men. Unfortunately, this has led scores of producers to star any handsome martial arts expert they can ...

Strictly Business (1991, 121 min., PG-13)

There's not much here to distinguish Strictly Business from The Secret of My Success, that fairly recent Michael J. Fox film about moving up through the ranks in corporate America. Davidson of In Living Color plays ...

Striptease (1996, 116 min., R)

Dumb and dumber. No, not Jim Carrey's latest. I'm talking about the recent trajectory of Demi Moore's script choices. I mean, really. First, there's The Juror in which the sculptor/mom she plays is impaneled on a ...

Stuart Little (1999, 92 min., PG)

Retelling of E.B. White's children's classic.

Stuart Little 2 (2002, 78 min., PG)

So I'm a sucker for talking animals. Stuart Little 2, and its enormously popular predecessor, 1999's Stuart Little, fudge a bit in that most of their Chatty Cathies are entirely computer-generated, but that fact doesn't strip ...

Submarine (2011, 97 min., R)

This British film is a bracingly deadpan coming-of-age story that proudly wears its Wes Anderson influences on its sleeve.

The Substance of Fire (1997, 102 min., R)

Uncompromising. Not a word one hears that often nowadays, except in reference to multinational corporations and superstar celebrities. Those with much can afford to be “uncompromising” (and seem to be, in their pursuit of greater profits ...

The Substitute (1996, 110 min., R)

The Substitute can only hope to capitalize on the inexplicable success of last year's Dangerous Minds, despite being an even sillier white bread fantasy. Like that film, The Substitute features a militarily trained “Great White Hope” ...

Sudden Manhattan (1997, 83 min., NR)

If Shelly's feature debut were a CD, it would arrive with the pronouncement “File Under Quirky” with an attachment: “If you enjoy this, you may also enjoy Allen, Woody; Hartley, Hal; etc.” The waif-like, 30-something actress ...
