American Job (1996, 90 min., NR)

Everyone knows this is nowhere, this world of minimum-wage jobs, stultifying labor, and dead ends. Another day, another meal, and we keep coming back for more of the same- not by choice, not by habit, but ...

American Mary (2013, 103 min., R)

The plastic surgery performed in this horror film gives real meaning to going under the knife.

American Me (1992, 125 min., R)

Olmos delivers a stark and unflinching study of the self-destructive perpetuation of violence, crime, and gang warfare in the Hispanic-American community.

American Movie (1999, 104 min., R)

For every big-dreaming nebbish whose pursuit of filmmaking glory lands him at the Oscars with Sarah Polley at his side, there are hundreds whose experience is more like that of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin's Mark Borchardt. Hunched ...

American Outlaws (2001, 95 min., PG-13)

“Bad is good again,” reads this tweener Western's marketing tagline. Nope, sorry gang, bad was never good, and American Outlaws is much, much worse. I'd like nothing more than to be able to relay that the ...

American Pie (1999, 95 min., R)

What hath Porky's wrought? This new, faster version of the semi-classic teen sex farce is a howler, bawdy yet constrained within its gross gridlock. It's as if the final print of Fast Times at Ridgemont High ...

American Pie 2 (2001, 100 min., R)

As everyone knows, it just wouldn't be summer without a teen sex farce, and this randy sequel to Paul Weitz's 1999 smash fits the bill to a T-back. Actually, it's the only thing out there right ...

American Pimp (1999, 87 min., NR)

Twin brothers Albert and Allen Hughes, who, in their previous films, Menace II Society and Dead Presidents, resisted the temptation to re-create the modern myths of the urban black ghettos yet maintained their commitment to honest, ...

American Psycho (2000, 100 min., R)

Don't believe the hype: American Psycho is no more “the most disgusting film of the year” (as dodgy Brit tabloid News of the World tagged it) than it is the wittiest. Instead, it falls somewhere in ...

American Reunion (2012, 112 min., R)

Thirteen years after American Pie jump-started sexual innuendo for a new generation, this sequel is the best one in the series.

American Sniper (2014, 132 min., R)

Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper tell Chris Kyle's war story.

American Splendor (2003, 101 min., R)

At the center of its uniquely beating heart, American Splendor is a heartfelt valentine to Everymen (and Women) everywhere

American Teen (2008, 95 min., PG-13)

A princess, jock, rebel, heartthrob, and geek: It could be The Breakfast Club, but American Teen is instead a documentary that ducks the consequences of its own making.

American: The Bill Hicks Story (2011, 102 min., NR)

The rants of the late, great stand-up comic Bill Hicks sound as fresh and brilliant as ever.

American Violet (2008, 103 min., PG-13)

This moving message film tells a story about a miscarriage of Texas justice.

American Wedding (2003, 95 min., R)

Jesse Dylan’s first feature was the ganja-infused comedy How High, which, while not exactly a high-bongwater mark in the annals of stoner merriment, managed to keep my dog fixated on the TV screen the other day, ...

The American (2010, 105 min., R)

George Clooney stars in this thoughtful thriller from the director of Control, the biopic about Joy Division's Ian Curtis.

America's Heart & Soul (2004, 88 min., PG)

Inspirational documentary is about Americans with true grit working in a land where seldom is heard a discouraging word.

Amira & Sam (2015, 90 min., NR)

Cross-cultural love between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi girl flourishes in the Big Apple.

Amistad (1997, 155 min., R)

Amistad is a disappointment if the standard for judging Steven Spielberg's new film is the state of mute, stumbling devastation that Schindler's List inspired in its viewers. The story it recounts, an 1839 slave rebellion aboard ...

The Amityville Horror (2005, 89 min., R)

A dream home on Long Island is not all it's cracked up to be: The family inside sees dead people.

Amores Perros (2000, 153 min., R)

Three stories about beast and man.

Amos & Andrew (1993, 96 min., PG-13)

Amos & Andrew is a better-than-average comedy that's likable enough while unfolding but evaporative when over. It takes a topical subject -- racial prejudice -- and combines it with a familiar narrative strategy -- mistaken identity ...

Amour (2013, 127 min., PG-13)

Death is part of love’s bargain, a fact filmmaker Michael Haneke lays bare.

Amreeka (2009, 96 min., PG-13)

In this delightfully human and sweetly comic ode to the contemporary immigrant experience in a post-9/11 “Amreeka,” a Palestinian mother and son create a world of possibilities.

Amy's Orgasm (2001, 85 min., NR)

She's a “feminist icon” with a best-selling self-help manual and hordes of Ellen Jamesian-like fans who wear baby-Ts emblazoned with slogans proclaiming their independence from men. So why is Amy Mandell (Davis) strangely attracted to Matthew ...

An American Rhapsody (2001, 106 min., PG-13)

An American Rhapsody has many things to recommend it. Among them are its non-exploitative glimpse at the immigrant experience as seen through the eyes of a teenage girl, its sober take on the issues of mother-daughter ...

An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991, 75 min., G)

Produced by Steven Spielberg, this animated film follows the further adventures of the Mousekewitz family, who came to America to escape the cat pogroms.

An American Werewolf in Paris (1997, 98 min., R)

In horror terms, 16 years is a dang nigh unprecedented span between an original movie and a sequel. There must have been--what? -- seven or eight Friday the 13th sequels in less than half that time. ...

An Angel at My Table (1990, 158 min., R)

On the surface An Angel at My Table is a straightforward biopic about the life of celebrated New Zealand author Janet Frame. But Frame's life story is anything but your typical "portrait of the artist." Then ...
