The Dancer Upstairs

Actor John Malkovich directed this murky political thriller about a South American police captain (the always welcome Javier Bardem) on the trail of an anarchistic revolutionary. Less of a police procedural and more of a dry rumination on political and personal corruption. The thrills are rather glacial and the dense plot hinges on several credulity-stretching lumps of coincidence--still, this tense, sharply acted drama has a way of seeping under your skin. 135 minutes
