Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & CAPTIVITY


During horror movies, people don't like to be confined. During the course of the movie Saw, a man even took a hacksaw to his own leg in order to escape a shackle. What depravity the prisoners in Captivity will have to sink to has yet to be determined, but the billboard that depicts a vulnerable Elisha Cuthbert as a model being tortured and terminated has already made people squirm -- in L.A. no less. (MD) Rated R





HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX


The best Potter to date makes the previous, comparatively bloated entry almost forgettable. This streamlined version of the immense fifth book picks up with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) threatened with expulsion from Hogwarts for using his magic in public -- even though it was to save his own life. The ever-sprawling story relies less on the friendships among him, Hermione (Emma Watson), and Ron (Rupert Gint), and more on a transformation from fantasy to horror, with a bit of politics thrown in. Most of the regular cast is still around (one is killed off), and the newest member -- Dolores Umbridge -- provides actress Imelda Staunton with some of the best scenery-chewing in the series. (ES) Rated PG-13





JINDABYNE


Fishing deep in the Australian hill country, an ex-pat Irishman (Gabriel Byrne) and his homeys find a dead girl's body in a stretch of river. Rather than report it, they continue fishing until the trip is over, telling the police days later. When the Irishman's wife (Laura Linney) finds out, she feels some great wrong has been done and seeks desperately to atone for her husband's mistake. (LB) Rated R





YOU KILL ME


The cold precision of assassination for hire gets all pathos-y when an ex-hit man -- who gets out of the biz by taking a job at a mortuary -- meets the widow of one of his victims. Ben Kingsley is good. Tea Leoni is less so. (LB) Rated R
