Best of Fest 1: The NY International Children's Film Fest Tour

The New York International Children's Film Festival brings a selection of its most delightful short films from around the world. Animated and live-action films from France, Germany, the UK, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Australia, Poland and the US are highlighted. Most contain no dialogue and are suitable for all ages. 60 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 9/24)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 12:00pm

The Hollars

John Krasinski (Jim Halpert from "The Office") serves as director and star for this Sundance-style indie about a man who returns to his small hometown after learning that his mother has fallen ill and is about to undergo surgery. Fellow sitcom star Zach Braff kinda staked out this dysfuctional family, indie-rock soundtrack dramedy territory a decade ago. It's overly familiar stuff, sure, but Krasinski lends a bittersweet charm to the proceedings. 88 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 9/23)
Century 14 Downtown The Hollars Fri-Sun 12:15, 2:35, 4:55, 7:15, 9:40; Mon-Thu 12:15, 2:35, 4:55, 7:15

I Am Not a Serial Killer

Troubled 16-year-old John Wayne Cleaver (Max Records from Where the Wild Things Are) isn't a serial killer--but he has all the makings of one. So when a supernatural psychopath (Christopher Lloyd) starts stalking his small midwestern town, our hero (?) must keep his homicidal tendencies in check in order to save the people he loves. Based on the cult YA novel by Dan Wells. 104 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/23)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

Limo Ride

This experimental documentary/comedy/reenactment relates the unbelievable true story of 10 friends in Mobile, Ala., who celebrated one New Year's Eve by hiring a limousine at 4am to drive them to the beach for a Polar Bear Plunge. The night's escapades only escalated from there, resulting in funny, frightening and borderline insane complications. It has the feel of an urban legend, crossed with The Hangover, crossed with Heavy Metal Parking Lot. A cult film in the making, to be sure. 84 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 9/27)
Guild Cinema Tue-Thu 4:30, 8:30

The Magnificent Seven

What do you know: 1960's The Magnificent Seven (itself a remake of 1954's Seven Samurai) gets a remake. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, The Equalizer) is behind the camera. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio and Matt Bomer are among the cowboys, gunslingers and outlaws hired to defend a poor, Wild West village from an army of savage thieves. 132 minutes PG-13.

Max Rose

Max Rose

Jerry Lewis, in what is sure to be a final starring role, is the titular Max Rose, a long-retired Jazz musician coping (or not) with the death of his wife of 65 years (Claire Bloom). Max' granddaughter (Kerry Bishé from "Halt and Catch Fire") moves in to babysit the devastated senior. But Max is harboring a secret: He fought with his wife before she died about a 50-year-old infidelity--and now he can't let it go. Escaping from an old age home, Max goes searching for the man who may or may not have stolen his wife's heart. The film is pure sentiment, but producer-turned-director Daniel Noah is smart enough to exploit his star's fame and frailty, resulting in a film that may not dig very deep, but features a touching central performance. FULL REVIEW: Sad drama about death and regret adds a modest capper to its star’s long career by Devin D. O’Leary (9/22/2016). 93 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/23)
High Ridge Fri-Sun 12:45, 3:50, 7:25, 10:05; Mon-Wed 12:45, 7:25; Thu 12:45, 3:50, 7:25

Mia Madre

Margherita Buy and John Turturro star in this self-reflexive drama for Italian filmmaker Nanni Moretti (The Son's Room, Dear Diary). Buy is a famous filmmaker experiencing a major crisis on set when she learns of her mother's fatal illness. Like a mixture of Moretti's two most famous films, this one conflates autobiographical details about the movie industry with heart-wrenching personal drama. 106 minutes R. (Opens Friday 9/23)
Guild Cinema Fri-Mon 3:45, 8:00

The Neon Demon

Danish master stylist Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher, Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Drive, Only God Forgives) returns with this glittery, surreal horror thriller about an aspiring model (Elle Fanning) who moves to Los Angeles where her youth and vitality are slowly stolen by a string of beauty-obsessed women. Macabre, twisted, gorgeously mounted and seriously depraved, this one will win fans and detractors in near-equal number. Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves round out the odd cast. 117 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 9/29)
SUB Theater Thu 7pm


Prithviraj Sukumaran and Divya Pillai star in this action thriller about a young explosion expert's "dramatical" revenge against the owners of a pharmaceutical company. In Malayalam with English subtitles. 140 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/23)

From My Neighbor Totoro to Princess Mononoke to Spirited Away to Howl's Moving Castle, the release of a new animated masterpiece from Hayao Miyazaki is cause for major celebration. This 2009 cartoon fantasy centers on the adventures of a 5-year-old boy who befriends a goldfish princess name Ponyo who dreams of becoming human. This loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid is clearly aimed at younger audiences, but the visuals are a trippy treat for all ages. See also: Notable titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Jerry Cornelius (09/06/2010), Notable animated titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Devin D. O’Leary (07/17/2011). 101 minutes G. (Opens Thursday 9/22)

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director's Cut

Kirk and crew are back in an amped-up action flick from 1982 battling former TV nemesis Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalban, giving good villain). For most fans, this remains the best film of the series (old generation, next gen or modern reboot). 121 minutes PG. (Opens Sunday 9/25)

From the studio that gave us The Lego Movie comes this CGI cartoon about storks--you know, the kind who deliver babies. Adam Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Ty Burrell and Danny Trejo are among the bird-based voice cast. 89 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 9/22)

Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization, Wayne's World) wrote and directed this no-budget, punk rock drama from 1983. The gritty story concerns a group of teenage punks who squat together in abandoned homes in Los Angeles and are soon targeted by unhappy suburbanites. T.S.O.L. and The Vandals are among the live music performances captured. And, yes, that's a young Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers among the cast. 94 minutes R. (Opens Tuesday 9/27)
Guild Cinema Tue-Thu 6:30


Three border patrol agents (Johnny Simmons, Gabriel Luna, Clifton Collins Jr.) working a remote desert checkpoint stumble across a major cache of cocaine, leading to the exposure of what could be a serious coverup--from within their own department. This smartly written, slow-burn indie thriller was shot in New Mexico and substitutes the usual manic gunplay for serious thrills and complex moral questions. 86 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/23)
Guild Cinema Fri-Mon 6:00
