Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & FLAWLESS & r & & r & Another heist movie: Americans these days, feeling pinched in their wallets, like watching anti-corporate movies. Michael Caine's a janitor with a diamond-theft scheme who, in 1960, recruits Demi Moore, a female executive who's hit the glass ceiling. Caine's sweet, meek, put-upon old man is a tricksy-enough portrayal; Moore tries her best to be serious and actorly but ends up stiff and uninteresting. So Flawless is, well, flawed -- but there's still enough intrigue to keep it engaging. (MAJ) Rated PG-13





INDIANA JONES: KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL


Fans have been waiting almost 20 years for the Steven Spielberg-Harrison Ford follow-up to the adventures of their favorite archeologist-professor. And the wait turns out to be worth it, with Indy going up against Cold War-era Russians and their power-mad scientist leader (Cate Blanchett, looking hot in a tight jumpsuit and a pageboy haircut). Everyone's searching for the mythic crystal skulls of Peru, with guns firing, swords slashing and vehicles hurtling through jungles. Ford is not too old for the part, Shia LaBeouf doesn't overact, and Karen Allen makes a terrific return as Marion Ravenwood. Funny, fast-moving, and action-packed. (ES) Rated PG-13





MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS


Wong Kar-Wai, director of In the Mood For Love, makes his English-language debut in this story of a waitress (Norah Jones) who goes off in search of herself only to eventually return to a dude (Jude Law). Natalie Portman, David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz and Cat Power co-star. (LB) Rated PG-13





THE VISITOR


In Tom McCarthy's follow-up to his beloved The Station Agent, a lonely man returns from self-exile in Connecticut to find his NYC apartment inhabited by squatters. They befriend each other, becoming social support for each other and, eventually, an ad hoc family. (LB) Rated PG-13

When two-dozen 80-somethings belt out the Bee Gees' hit "Stayin' Alive" and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," the songs become far more than anthems to indomitable youth. This documentary follows a western Massachusetts chorus of seniors from rehearsals to concerts, including footage from a show at a prison. If you're young enough to still think elderly people are funny just because they're old, then go for the laughs. You might think differently on the way out. (AC) Rated PG

    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.
