Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff
** A Man Apart -- Genuinely gritty R-rated action from the director of Set it Off stars Vin Diesel as the most unsympathetic of DEA agents. With Larenz Tate and a bunch of bullets. Directed by F. Gary Gray. (RP) Rated: R





**** Lost in La Mancha -- Freak floods. High winds. Fighter jets. Prostate inflammation. What more can stop the making of Terry Gilliam's long-in-the-works vision of Cervantes' Don Quixote? Insurance adjusters, it turns out. Lost in La Mancha is Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe's thrilling, damn entertaining quixotic tragicomedy of a Gilliam film that goes straight to hell in its first week of production. Neatly structured, it captures Gilliam's great enthusiasm, willingness to be shown in any circumstance, and the years of dreaming over a film he still hopes to make. (RP) Rated: R. Showing at the Met Cinema on Thursday, April 3.





*** Phone Booth -- A morality play in just over eighty minutes from Joel Schumacher? Yes, indeed. In Phone Booth, a vibrant riff on both Hitchcock and The Sweet Smell of Success, Colin Farrell is Stu Shepard, a PR hustler in today's New York, who, despite having a lovely and forgiving wife (Radha Mitchell), is inching his way toward an affair with a young waitress (Katie Holmes). But someone's got his number: a "moral adjuster" (Kiefer Sutherland) who wreaks havoc on the life of people whose venality aggravate his sense of justice. In midtown Manhattan, Stu is told he must stay in one of the city's last phone booths. Vivid, vibrant and cheekily vulgar, Phone Booth starts as an unlikely B-movie high-concept but is actually an energetic thriller that's both tart and taut. (RP) Rated: R





What a Girl Wants -- Why can't Colin Firth and Anna Chancellor stay in witty Austen adaptations like Pride and Prejudice, or even cleverly scripted crowd-pleasers like Bridget Jones's Diary and Four Weddings and a Funeral? Well, because you can make a lot more money doing family-friendly fare like What a Girl Wants. Amanda Bynes plays your typical American teenager who travels to London to see the father she's never known (Firth). Of course he's descended from aristocracy and his long-lost daughter is as American as they come -- expect lots of trans-Atlantic culture clashin' silliness. Rated: PG
