Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer (1992, 87 min., R)

Between 1989 and 1990, Aileen Wuornos, a homely, luckless, lesbian hooker who haunted the interstates of jerkwater Florida, committed a series of seven murders. All of the victims were middle-aged, caucasian males who had tried to ...

Aimée & Jaguar (1999, 133 min., NR)

Aimée & Jaguar was nominated this year for the Golden Globe's Best Foreign Film, and although it lost to Pedro Almodóvar's All About My Mother, it's easy to see why the film has become something of ...

Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013, 105 min., NR)

A hardscrabble, heartbreaking, love-and-death affair is gorgeously captured in David Lowery's Texas feature.

Air Bud (1997, 98 min., PG)

A distinct canine motif runs through basketball history. Witness past and present NBA players Fred “Mad Dog” Carter, Tim Bassett, Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson and Joe Wolf. Not to mention former UT Longhorn star Locksley Collie. ...

Air Bud: Golden Receiver (1998, 92 min., G)

This second installment in what looks to be an ongoing series is about as “family entertainment” as you can get. Granted, sometimes that's a good thing, but when the directors and producers start equating “family” with ...

Air De Famille, Un (1996, 107 min., NR)

In a sleepy French village, an extended family gathers to ostensibly celebrate the 35th birthday of one of their own. What follows is a dark comedy of familial sniping and underhanded potshots that plays like Woody ...

Air Force One (1997, 125 min., R)

Another day, another summer blockbuster. Really, my ears are ringing and my head hurts and isn't it about time for a musical? Perhaps not. Perhaps just one more big shoot-'em-up, and then we can all go ...

Air Guitar Nation (2007, 81 min., R)

What other international competition awards points for general "airiness"? This fun documentary celebrates the weirdness but never mocks the participants.

The Air Up There (1994)

The time-worn formula of the underdog surpassing all odds meets a premise reeking of cultural imperialism that takes basketball mania a bit too far. A self-assured, fast-talking coach at a Catholic college named Jimmy Dolan (Bacon) ...

Airborne (1993)

Filters. I don't normally think about filters as much as I did while watching this movie. If someone had spent half as much time thinking about the characters in Airborne as thinking about what filters to ...

Airheads (1994, 92 min., PG-13)

Poor Michael Lehmann's career path is following that same downward spiral as Michael Cimino's: one brilliant film, and then... nothing. Or worse than nothing. Cimino had his Deer Hunter and Lehmann had his Heathers, but neither ...

Ajami (2009, 120 min., NR)

This Oscar-nominated Israeli film reveals not only the divides between Jews and Arabs, but also those between Muslims and Christians, young and old, men and women, and rich and poor.

AKA (2002, 118 min., NR)

Eighteen-year-old Brit from an unhappy background re-invents himself as a member of the aristocracy. He's also working out his gay identity. And it's told in triptyches, too.

A/k/a Tommy Chong (2006, 78 min., NR)

Chong cuts a hugely sympathetic figure in the story of his legal troubles after Operation Pipe Dreams, an anti-paraphernalia sweep that specifically targeted his bong business.

Akeelah and the Bee (2006, 112 min., PG)

This story about a girl from the ghetto who wins the national spelling bee has lofty if sometimes unfulfilled goals, but is a rewarding tale nevertheless.

Al Franken: God Spoke (2006, 90 min., NR)

The film follows around comedian and politico Franken without managing to either inflame or inspire the viewer or add much new information to Franken's already well-documented history.

Aladdin (1992, 90 min., PG)

The folks at Disney see a new dawn on the horizon. It's the rebirth of the animated feature with a wealth of product from not only their own studio, but a host of other animation houses. ...

The Alamo (2004, 135 min., PG-13)

In this round of historical revisionism there's not much to remember except, maybe, Davy Crockett becoming a fiddler on the roof.

Alan & Naomi (1992, 96 min., PG)

Alan & Naomi is set during World War II in New York. It exhibits the kind of excruciating attention to detail that signals misty nostalgia and an impossibly functional family life. Another early indicator that the ...

Alan Partridge (2014, 90 min., R)

Steve Coogan’s comical egomaniac Alan Partridge jumps from British television to the movie screen – with all of his smarm intact.

The Alarmist (1998, 93 min., NR)

David Arquette has two basic facial expressions in The Alarmist: a wince, followed by a panicked grimace. It's a limited acting approach oddly fitting for the role of Thomas Hudler, a neophyte salesman wandering Candide-like in ...

Alaska (1996, 108 min., PG)

If you can manage to overlook some annoying gaps in logic and the relentless bombast of the ever-present musical score, Alaska is a pretty decent kids' adventure movie. The primary things that makes it so are ...

Albert Nobbs (2012, 113 min., R)

This melancholy picture is distinguished by Glenn Close's vanishing act in the titular role.

Albino Alligator (1996, 96 min., R)

If nothing else, Spacey’s directorial debut boasts the year’s best cast thus far. Apart from that, however, Albino Alligator is a fierce little hybrid: part deadpan black comedy, part classic noir. Leader Dova (Dillon), his wounded ...

Alex & Emma (2003, 96 min., PG-13)

With the recent news that "bling-bling" has made it into the New Oxford Dictionary, I’d like to propose another addition to our lexicon: the Coppola Curse. It’s what happens when a once-fine director slowly chips away ...

Alex Cross (2012, 101 min., PG-13)

Stretching out of his Madea comfort zone to play James Patterson's FBI profiler is a courageous but misguided move on Tyler Perry’s part.

Alexander (2004, 173 min., R)

Oliver Stone has achieved the impossible: He's made the life of Alexander the Great seem boring.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014, 81 min., PG)

This pleasant throwback to the live-action Disney films of yore provides brisk fun for all.

Alfie (2004, 103 min., R)

Jude Law's new Alfie is less tramp and more scamp: the modern metrosexual.

Ali (2001, 158 min., R)

The best thing about Michael Mann's sprawling yet strangely non-encompassing biopic of Muhammad Ali's life is Jon Voight, who loses himself in the role of sportscaster Howard Cosell so thoroughly that I didn't even recognize the ...
