3rd Annual UNM Student Film Festival

The Southwest Film Center at UNM presents its annual, end-of-the-year showcase, featuring the best student-submitted shorts of the year. (Opens Saturday 11/22)
SUB Theater Sat 6:00

Alice's Restaurant

Guild Cinema celebrates Thanksgiving with director Arthur Penn's 1969 adaptation of Arlo Guthrie's seriocomic anthem. Guthrie more or less plays himself, a hippie who hitchhikes, plays guitar, gets drafted, goes for an Army physical and hangs out with his Earth Mother pal Alice. Pete Seeger drops by at one point. There isn't much in the way of plot, but it's a pretty solid paean/memorial to the counterculture movement of the late '60s. 111 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 11/27)
Guild Cinema Thu 5:00, 7:30

Citizenfour

A documentarian and a reporter travel to Hong Kong to meet with NSA whistleblower-on-the-run Edward Snowden. Whether you think of him as a traitor or a patriot, this even-keeled collection of up-close-and-personal interviews (recorded over the course of eight days) will make you think twice about the former CIA analyst's narrative concerning abuse of government power in the data age. 114 minutes R. (Opens Friday 11/21)
High Ridge Fri-Sun 12:50, 3:55, 7:40, 10:30; Mon-Tue 12:50, 3:55, 7:40; Wed-Thu 12:50, 3:55, 7:40, 10:30

Days and Nights

Anton Chekhov's The Seagull gets adapted to rural New England in the 1980s. (Sure, why not?) Allison Janney plays an aging movie star who brings her boyfriend (the film's writer-director Christian Camargo) to her family's lakeside estate over Memorial Day weekend. Among the other resentment-filled guests/family members are William Hurt, Ben Whishaw, Jean Reno, Russell Means, Michael Nyqvist and Katie Holmes. Not a lot really happens, but there's the occasional talky drama at mealtime. 92 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 11/21)
Guild Cinema Fri-Wed 4:45, 8:30

Dr. Cabbie

Bollywood meets Toronto in this French-Canadian comedy about a newly minted Indian doctor (Vinay Virmani) who emigratees to the Great White North in the hopes of starting a new life. Unfortunately, bureaucratic snags limit him to life as a lowly cab driver. Unable to supress his desire to practice medicine, however, he begins illegally treating patients in his cab. Adrianne Paliki ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") shows up as the love interest. 101 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 11/26)
Century Rio Wed-Thu 11:05am, 1:55, 4:45, 7:35, 10:25

Genetic Chile

This documentary takes an eye-opening look at the world of genetically modified organisms by making a closer examination of New Mexico's iconic chile pepper. The state of New Mexico actually funded research to produce a GMO chile--the first time a state government has officially backed such a move. This allowed filmmaker Chris Dudley to interview genetic researchers at NMSU about the potentially harmful use of GMO technology in our state. The UNM Food Justice Initiative will lead a discussion following the screening. 61 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 11/22)
Guild Cinema Sat 12:30

Horrible Bosses 2

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis return for more criminal hijinks--but this time around, they appear to be the horrible bosses. Unable to get their new business off the ground thanks to a slick investor, the trio plot a harebrained kidnapping scheme. Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey drop by to help. 108 minutes R.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 1

Hollywood is sick of trilogies. That's only three movies' worth of profits. The cool thing now is to take the final book in a trilogy and split it in two different movies (like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 2). So apparently Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) has destroyed the Hunger Games. She's hiding out, trying to rescue her boyfriend (Josh Hutcherson) from evil government forces when she gets a call from the rebel leader (Julianne Moore) asking her to become the face of the rebellion. It beats being the face of L'Oreal. ... And now you only have an entire year to wait until the second half of the story. 123 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 11/21)

Pelican Dreams

Filmmaker Judy Irving (The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill) continues to explore her love for wild birds with this look at the plight of native pelican species along California's coastline. The center of her story is Gigi, an injured brown pelican found wandering the Golden Gate Bridge. By following Gigi's rehab and eventual release, Irving ruminates on the human race's interaction with nature in general and with these gangly seabirds in particular. 79 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 11/21)
Guild Cinema Fri-Wed 3:00, 6:45

Philomena

A world-weary political journalist (British comedian Steve Coogan) hunts down the story of a woman's search for her long-lost son, given up decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent. Director Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen, Dangerous Liaisons) adds a light comic touch to this road trip dramedy, while Judi Dench delivers a poignant performance in the title role. A lovely, surprisingly uplifting crowd-pleaser. 98 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 11/20)
SUB Theater Fri 6:00, 8:00; Sun 1:00, 3:00

The Theory of Everything

'Tis the season for high-toned biopics. Eddie Redmayne (The Pillars of the Earth, Les Misérables) stars as world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking. This inspirational romantic drama concentrates on Hawking's pre-talking-wheelchair relationship with his college girlfriend-cum-wife Jane (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy). It's beautifully performed and perfectly bittersweet, but occasionally feels too expertly crafted for Academy Award appeal. 123 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 11/26)
