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

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

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 ...

Anaconda (1997, 89 min., PG-13)

The best giant snake film of 1997! Okay, okay, the only giant snake film of 1997. Which makes it the best, right? Well… yeah, in a way. Truth be told, Anaconda is a numbingly pedestrian affair, ...

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004, 93 min., PG-13)

Analyze That (2002, 100 min., R)

Analyze This (1999, 103 min., R)

You don't need a psychology degree to catch all the Freudian subcurrents in Hollywood gangster flicks. All those gun barrels getting stuffed down men's throats, all those big cigars, all that Oedipal conniving to knock off ...

Anastasia (1997, 94 min., G)

A teen searches for belonging and unconditional love in this animated film set against the sanitized background of the Russian Revolution.

Anchoress (1993, 106 min.)

Striking visuals and a theme that transcends its 14th-century setting mark Chris Newby's debut film Anchoress. The film's screenplay is loosely based on two letters from the late 1300s that tell the story of a young ...

… And God Spoke (the making of …) (1993, 83 min., NR)

And Now ... Ladies and Gentlemen (2003, 126 min., PG-13)

Claude Lelouch’s new movie starring Jeremy Irons is a cat-burgler story set in sunny, faraway locales.

And So It Goes (2014, 94 min., PG-13)

Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas are ill-served by director by Rob Reiner in this odd-couple romance.

Andre (1994, 94 min., PG)

Tell me that you've never harbored the desire to hug a seal and feel the swoosh of a sleek, sinuous sea flapper sliding through your arms- and I'll tell you that, under no circumstances, should you ...

Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera (2004, 143 min., PG-13)

Angel Dust (1994, 116 min., NR)

A bizarre, stylized trip into the mind of a serial killer and the psychic investigator desperate to find him, Angel Dust is that rare avis, a cat-and-mouse thriller that lives up to -- and surpasses -- ...

Angel Eyes (2001, 104 min., R)

Its heart is never in the wrong place, but Angel Eyes is what Roger Ebert calls an “Identikit movie.” Director Mandoki and screenwriter Gerald DiPego (both of whom you may recall from 1999's Message in a ...

Angel-A (2005, 91 min., R)

Luc Besson delivers a gorgeous-looking but ill-conceived mash note to the city of Paris that stars a petty crook and an ethereal beauty.

Angela (1995, 103 min., NR)

“We're Christian Scientists,” 10-year-old Angela (Rhyne) explains to a new friend. “We use electricity to make people's souls clean.” Angela's definition of her and her 6-year-old sister Ellie's (Blythe) “religion” captures the mix of unexpected humor ...

Angela's Ashes (2000, 145 min., R)

The wonder of Frank McCourt's astonishing memoir, Angela's Ashes, is that its story is told at all. An unforgettable account of growing up impoverished in the damp hell of Limerick, Ireland, in the 1930s and 1940s, ...

Angels & Demons (2009, 138 min., PG-13)

The chase is on, but there's no Holy Grail to be found in this suspenseless trail of decoded symbols.

Angels in the Outfield (1994)

Disney, what hast thou wrought? It is baseball season, sure, but this new entry from the kings of kiddie cinema is a family-oriented heartstring-yanker so syrupy-sweet in its depictions of the game, angels, orphans, children's wishes, ...

The Angels' Share (2013, 101 min., NR)

Scottish social-realist director Ken Loach is back with a new movie about young delinquents and a whisky-distillery heist.

Angels Sing (2013, 90 min., PG)

This sugarcoated Christmas tale is an Austin-born and -bred affair.

Anger Management (2003, 103 min., PG-13)

It’s probably a good thing that Jack Nicholson didn’t get the Oscar last month for his performance in About Schmidt, because right about now he’d have a lot of explaining to do: How could this new ...

Angie (1994, 107 min., R)

Angie's having an identity crisis and it's not always pretty to watch. Despite starring the beautiful and hard-working Geena Davis, it has a kind of displaced feel, as if it isn't the movie it dreams of ...
