Opening Films 

Italian for Beginners -- Lone Scherfig's romantic comedy fits nicely within Lars von Trier's Dogme 95 movement specifications (think The Celebration, The Idiots and Mifune) but stands well on its own. It's rude and prankish, but also smart as it partakes of romantic comedy expectations, challenging them and honoring them at the same time. A romance without music? Sherfig rises to the challenge in this tale of six thirtysomethings in a small Danish town looking for life with love. There are a couple of scenes that are so fragile, so right, I laughed and teared up at the same adorable moment. (RP) RATED R





Murder by Numbers -- Barbet Schroeder brings his substantial technical gifts to a Sandra Bullock police procedural: while not fully satisfying, it's still thrillingly smart and well-made. A 21st-century high school Leopold and Loeb are investigated by detective Bullock, who has more than a little darkness in her own past. While everyone involved is well aware they're not remaking the movies, they know they're making entertainment and work it at the height of their craft. With Ben Chaplin. (RP) Rated R





The Scorpion King -- WWF star The Rock gets his first major role as an assassin hired to take out a sorcerer who's aiding an evil warlord in this flashy, funny, action-packed prequel to The Mummy Returns. Lots of violence (all done off-screen), many cleverly-covered-but-still-scantily-clad women, and a great variety of fights with sharp objects. Wisely, the effects are kept to a minimum, and real people doing stunts are up front. The Rock rules. (ES) Rated PG-13

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
