The Boy Next Door

Jennifer Lopez stars in this time-wasting erotic thriller about a divorced teacher who has a torrid affair with the new boy across the street. Things get complicated when he turns up as a student in her high school class and then goes all Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction on her. Oops. 91 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 1/22)

Cake

Jennifer Aniston gets all actorly all of a sudden to play a drug-addicted suburbanite who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a woman in her chronic pain support group. It's her best "change of pace" work since 2002's The Good Girl, but the film is too slow and morose to fully gel as either a comedy or a tragedy. 102 minutes R. (Opens Friday 1/23)

Drunktown's Finest

Shot in Gallup, NM, by hometown boy and first-time filmmaker Sydney Freeland, this gritty ensemble drama follows three young Native Americans--an adopted Christian girl, a rebellious father-to-be and a promiscuous transsexual--as they strive to escape the hardships of life on an Indian reservation. The script was developed through the Sundance Director's Lab, and the finished product was executive produced by Mr. Sundance himself, Robert Redford. 92 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 1/23)
Guild Cinema Fri-Tue 6:15

How the West Was Won

James Stewart, John Wayne, Gregory Peck, Henry Fonda, Debbie Reynolds, Carroll Baker, Eli Wallach, Robert Preston, Karl Malden and just about everybody else in Hollywood in 1962 star in this multigenerational, multisegment saga about the Gold Rush, the Civil War and pretty much anything else Wild West-related. It was originally shot in 70mm, and John Ford directed the Civil War stuff. This is definitely the kind of epic Western you wanna see on the big screen. 164 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 1/25)

The Humbling

Barry Levinson (Diner, Rain Man) directed and Buck Henry (The Graduate, Catch-22) adapted the screenplay for this comedy-drama based on the not-very-well-regarded novel of the same name by Philip Roth. Al Pacino plays an aging theater actor who's lost his talent for the stage. He finds motivation, however, by sleeping with his lustful, lesbian goddaughter (indie doll Greta Gerwig). It's some major, dirty-old-man wish fulfillment--but Pacino sure commits to it. Think half Birdman, half Woody Allen sex farce. 112 minutes R. (Opens Friday 1/23)
Guild Cinema Fri-Tue 4:00, 8:15

Mortdecai

Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paul Bettany star in this oddball adaptation of Kyril Bonfiglioli's P.G. Wodehouse-esque comic thrillers (published between 1973 and 1978). Depp plays the title character, a charming, debonair art dealer and part-time rogue who gets caught up in a caper involving Mi5, some angry Russians and a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost Nazi gold. 106 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 1/22)

Moulin Rouge!

Australian director Baz Luhrmann (Strictly Ballroom, William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet) cuts loose with an all-out fantasy musical set in 19th-century century Paris' most infamous nightclub, the Moulin Rouge. Nicole Kidman stars as the club's most famous showgirl. Ewan McGregor plays an amorous writer in love with the bewitching performer. John Leguizamo pops up as McGregor's mentor, famed painter Toulouse Lautrec. The music is a lyrical blur of everything from Nat King Cole to Madonna. Astonishingly, this heady anachronistic cocktail works thanks to the sheer moxie of writer/director Luhrmann, who creates a lurid, candy-colored fever dream of a film that just might make musicals cool again. 127 minutes PG-13. (Thursday 1/22)

Roger Beebe: Films for One to Eight Projectors

Basement Films co-presents a multi-projector performance by experimental filmmaker/curator/professor Roger Beebe. This "best of" collection features several of Beebe's most famous shorts, including "the six-projector show-stopping space jam 'Last Light of a Dying Star'." Among the topics up for discussion are black athletes with Irish surnames ("Famous Irish Americans"), Las Vegas suicides ("Money Changes Everything") and companies jockeying to be at the front of the phone book ("AAAAA Motion Picture"). 120 minutes (Opens Wednesday 1/28)
Guild Cinema Wed 7:30

Strange Magic

Before he sold the farm, George Lucas spent several years working on this secret project. It's an animated musical about goblins, elves, fairies and imps, all battling over a powerful magical potion. Evan Rachel Wood, Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Chenoweth provide some of the voices. Popular tunes by Whitney Houston, Heart, The Four Tops and ELO make up of the musical numbers. 99 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 1/22)

[REC] 4: Apocalypse

Writer-director Jaume Balagueró returns for the fourth film in the claustrophobic zombie series [REC]. This time around, the demonic virus has busted out of the apartment building in Barcelona and is going international. Ángela Vidal (Manuela Velasco), the spunky young television reporter who somehow survived the first film, is back. Quarantined on a offshore oil tanker by a medical team, she discovers that the hellish zombie infection has followed her out to sea. Death and dismemberment ensue. In Spanish with English subtitles. 95 minutes R. (Opens Friday 1/23)
