OPENING THIS WEEK^ back to top


Alan Partridge

British comedian Steve Coogan returns to his beloved (if largely hated) sitcom character, insensitive radio talk show host Alan Partridge. In this feature film takeoff, a disgruntled fellow DJ (Colm Meaney from "ST:TNG") decides to hold the radio station hostage at gunpoint after getting sacked by a new management team. Can our clueless hack Alan talk his way out of this dangerous situation? 90 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 4/10)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sun 4:00, 6:00, 8:00

Captain America: The First Avenger

Chris Evans (who did previous hero duty as the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies) stars as skinny Steve Rogers who is rejected for Army duty during World War II. Drafted into a secret government experiment, though, he becomes the buffed-up super soldier Captain America. After that, it's off to Europe to battle evil Germans and a creepy-looking dude called the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving, The Matrix's Agent Smith). Joe Johnston (who gave us similar historical hero action with 1991's The Rocketeer) offers fans of the character exactly what they're looking for--loads of old-fashioned, star-spangled fisticuffs. 125 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 7/22)

Captain America: The First Avenger 3D

Century Rio Fri-Sat 10:00 am, 11:25 am, 12:10, 1:20, 2:50, 3:35, 4:45, 6:15, 7:00, 8:10, 9:40, 10:25, 11:35; Sun-Thu 10:00 am, 11:25 am, 12:10, 1:20, 2:50, 3:35, 4:45, 6:15, 7:00, 8:10, 9:40, 10:25

Draft Day

Kevin Costner stars in this largely sports-free sports movie. In it he plays the financially savvy general manager of a pro football franchise, desperate to rebuild his team. But will he keep the number one draft pick or trade the guy to another team for several first-round draft picks spread over the course of the next three seasons? It's the sort of insider dilemma only the most hardcore of football fans might actually care about. In other words: If a cameo by real-life Cleveland Browns CEO Joe Banner doesn't get your juices flowing, just move along. 109 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 4/11)

Experiments in Cinema v9.72

Albuquerque's world-famous, homegrown experimental film festival returns for a ninth (I think) year. From April 14 through 21, various venues around Albuquerque will fill with the sights and sounds of cutting edge media-manipulators from as far away as Iran and South Korea. In addition to the "uncomfortable, unfamiliar and always challenging screenings," programmers have dragged in Greg DeCuir Jr. and Miodrag Milosevic from the Alternative Film/Video Festival in Belgrade, Stephen Kent Jusick of The MIX NY Queer Experimental Film Festival and Spanish filmmaker/curator Antoni Pinent to host their own special presentations. Head to experimentsincinema.com for a compete list of films, workshops, parties and more. (Opens Monday 4/11)

Le Week-End

A longtime husband-and-wife team (Lindsay Duncan and Jim Broadbent) try to rekindle their old flame by going on an anniversary trip to Paris where they once honeymooned. Things don't work out so well with the couple alternately fighting and commiserating. The result is the bitter, older flipside to Richard Linklater's walk-and-talk romance Before Sunrise. 93 minutes R. (Opens Friday 4/11)
High Ridge Fri-Thu 1:15, 4:00, 7:10, 10:10

Mistaken For Strangers

This hilarious, surprisingly emotional documentary follows lovable slacker and self-described "metalhead" Tom Berninger as he accepts an invitation to become a roadie on tour with his older brother, Matt Berninger, lead singer for the world-famous alternative rock band The National. While the band tours Europe, Tom shoots this documentary, gets generally abused as a lowly crew member, confronts his unfulfilled creative ambitions and tries to reconcile the rocky relationship between himself and his famous brother. 92 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 4/11)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:00

Oculus

Karen Gillan ("Doctor Who") and Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening) star as a brother and sister who have spent their lives searching for a haunted mirror that allegedly possessed their father and resulted in the murder of their mother. They find it, but instead of destroying it , they set out to scientifically prove the crimes of the past were committed by supernatural phenomenon. That's probably a bad idea. This quiet, slow-burning indie earns its scares and increases the number of "haunted mirror" movies to at least six (including Dead of Night, From Beyond the Grave, The Boogey Man, Haunted by Her Past and Mirrors). That's almost big enough for a new category on Netflix. 105 minutes R. (Opens Friday 4/11)

Pandora's Box

Silent film star Louise Brooks made her most striking impression in this 1929 drama from director G.W. Pabst. This masterpiece of early German cinema casts Brooks as a brash yet innocent showgirl whose uninhibited sexuality leads to her dark downfall. An Albuquerque Film Club presentation. (Opens Saturday 4/12)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 1:00

The Raid 2

The nonstop, balls-out Indonesian action flick The Raid was simply begging for a sequel. Three years later writer-director Gareth Evans and star Iko Uwais have capitulated to fans, delivering another insanely action-packed martial arts juggernaut. This time Jakarta cop Rama (Uwais) goes undercover to bust a crime syndicate. Eventually, of course, our hero is required to fight every single person in the city. 150 minutes R. (Opens Friday 4/11)

Rio 2

The mostly forgettable 2011 CGI babysitter about a domestic parrot winging his way to Rio de Janeiro gets a harmless sequel about wisecracking and/or singing animals lost in the Amazon. 101 minutes G. (Opens Friday 4/11)

TCM Presents: And The Oscar Goes To...

Turner Classic Movies' just-aired documentary tracing the history of the Academy Awards heads to movie theaters. Traveling from 1927 until today, the film stops in on Oscar winners Steven Spielberg, George Clooney, Helen Mirren, Ben Kingsley, Liza Minnelli, Cher, Jon Voight, Tom Hanks and countless others.

The Unknown Known

Academy Award-winning documentarian Errol Morris (Gates of Heaven, The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) points his camera square in the face of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Instead of interviewing him, Morris has the infamous politician recite and expound on his voluminous "memos." The result is a frustrating yet illuminating look into one man's attempt to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate and control history. 102 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 4/11)
Guild Cinema Thu 3:00, 5:30, 8:00
