Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


3 on 3 -- Local production company North by Northwest has produced an intelligent, suspenseful documentary following three teams during last year's Hoopfest tournament: little boys from suburbia, teenage girls from the rez, and thirtysomething black men from Atlanta. Episodes include crushing defeats, complaining about the refs, pizza making and a visit to a cancer ward -- though you'll be surprised which incidents involve which teams. (Michael Bowen)





Fahrenheit 9/11 -- Michael Moore's powerful, wrenching, drenching, heartfelt, ultimately patriotic polemic is a rapid-fire assemblage of what he finds awry in our nation's government over the past four years. It may be the electoral season's most controversial Rohrschach test. It's not a campaign commercial, but a hushed, mocking voice of outrage. (RP) Rated: R





The Notebook -- Get out the Kleenex, but be prepared to smile, too. Gentle James Garner spends his days reading a love story to Alzheimer's patient Gena Rowlands, and that 1940s story is played out with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams as the young lovers. With terrific performances by Joan Allen as a bitchy, self-centered, controlling mom, and by Sam Shepard as a thoughtful, free-spirited dad. Directed, with a great twist, by Rowlands' son, Nick Cassavetes. (ES) Rated: PG-13





Two Brothers -- Two tiger cubs, one gentle, one feisty, are separated and brought up under very different circumstances by very different people. When they're reunited, they're not who they used to be, as one is somewhat domesticated and the other has been turned into a killer. An excellent family film with a strong performance by Guy Pearce, playing someone who's more complex than he at first appears. No CGI effects here. They're real tigers. The most common question is "How on earth did they make this film?" (ES) Rated: PG





White Chicks -- If you've ever wondered what the offspring from a Wayans brothers-Hilton sisters hookup might look like, now's your chance. Shawn and Marlon Wayons are undercover and extra scary in blond wigs, white girl makeup and what look like a few extra pairs of Marilyn Manson's light blue eye. Damon stays offscreen but is partially responsible for writing and directing this thing. Rated: PG-13
