2014 Sundance Film Festival Shorts

A wide variety of stories and styles pack this collection of eight short films culled from this year's Sundance Film Festival. In "Afronauts," a group of Zambian exiles tries to beat America to the moon, circa 1969. In "The Cut" a father-and-daughter relationship is tested by a haircut. In "I'm a Mitzvah," a young American spends one last night with his deceased friend while stranded in rural Mexico. And that ain't the half of it! The USA, Russia, Austria, Canada and Israel are among the countries represented this year. 94 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 8/29)
Guild Cinema Fri-Thu 4:30, 6:30

As Above/So Below

In this archaeologically minded supernatural thriller, a group of explorers descends into the skeleton-filled catacombs below Paris, only to come face-to-face with their own fears made real. If you're a "found footage" completist, you might be the audience for this low-budget mixture of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and The Descent from the Brothers Dowdle (The Poughkeepsie Tapes, Quarantine, Devil). 93 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 8/28)

Cantinflas

Óscar Jaenada stars in this Spanish-language biopic about beloved Mexican comedy star Cantinflas. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. 106 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 8/28)
Century Rio Fri-Thu 11:30am, 2:15, 5:00, 7:45, 10:30

Frank

Michael Fassbender (Shame, 12 Years a Slave) stars as an introverted prog/punk/folk/experimental rock singer who recruits/kidnaps a wannabe keyboard player (Domhnall Gleeson from the Harry Potter films) and tries to hit the big time at Austin's SXSW music fest. Also, he wears a giant, papier-mâché head. At all times. Very loosely based on a stage persona created by British comedian Chris Sievey, this oddball black comedy is freakishly funny, weirdly touching and ripe for cult worship. 95 minutes R. (Opens Friday 8/29)
Guild Cinema Fri-Thu 8:30

Ghostbusters

The classic 1984 supernatural comedy returns to the big screen, just in time for its 30th anniversary. Feel free to quote along ("It's true, this man has no penis.") as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson zap ghosts and demons in midtown Manhattan. 105 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 8/28)

The November Man

Pierce Brosnan stars as an ex-CIA operative who is brought back from retirement (of course he is) and pitted against a former protégé (Luke Bracey, who played Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: Retaliation) in one of those deadly games of cat-and-mouse that spies/assassins love to play on screen. There's some decent action, but you've seen it all before. Based on the seventh book in the "November Man" series by author Bill Granger. 106 minutes R. (Opens Wednesday 8/27)
Century 14 Downtown Fri-Sun 11:40am, 2:15, 5:00, 7:40, 10:20; Mon-Thu 11:40am, 2:15, 5:00, 7:40

Rabbit-Proof Fence

This simple, true-life story (directed by Clear and Present Danger's Phillip Noyce) relates a dark, and often unspoken chapter in Australian history. Throughout the 1950s, the Australian government would routinely remove half-caste children from their Aboriginal mothers and ship them off to interment camps to be trained as domestic servants. This film tells the story of one tough-minded little girl who skipped out on the camp and embarked on 1,500-mile journey (with two younger girls in tow) to return to her home. Shocking in its truth, inspiring in its message (if a little black-and-white in its storytelling), this well-crafted tale is an emotional winner. 95 minutes R. (Thursday 9/4)
SUB Theater Thu 7:00

Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie

This latest film in the popular Japanese-animated "Naruto: Shippuden" series of films comes straight outta Japan. Having defeated the infamous Akatsuki, who have mysteriously returned from the dead, young Naruto and his ninja-in-training friends return to their village for a little rest and relaxation. But a mysterious masked wizard soon appears and whisks our hero to a parallel mirror world where his parents never died, and he was never forced to became a magical ninja warrior. Will Naruto be happy in this illusory life, or can he break the spell? 109 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 8/29)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

Saints and Soldiers: The Void

The third film in the slightly popular, Mormon-based World War II drama series hits select theaters. This one concentrates on an African-American tank driver (K. Danor Gerald from Ice Spiders and 12 Dogs of Christmas: Great Puppy Rescue) who finds himself serving with a predominantly white crew out-gunned and out-manned by a German Panzer division deep in the Harz mountains. 95 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 8/29)
Century Rio Fri-Thu 11:15am, 1:50, 4:30, 7:10, 9:50

Shane

Alan Ladd stars as the titular gunfighter in George Stevens' iconic 1953 Western. Weary of violence and the wandering life, our hero attempts to settle down with a homesteading family. But a long-smoldering settler/rancher conflict forces him out of retirement. The ending is, of course, one of the all-time best. 118 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 8/30)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 12:00
