and the more recent, and more reasoned, behind-bars documentary

THE BRIDE WORE BLACK

François Truffaut does Hitchcock, sorta, as a young woman (Jeanne Moreau) systematically murders the men who made her a widow.

DR. SEUSS' THE LORAX

The beloved and eerily somber children’s ecological fable gets an animated 3D film adaptation. It’s one thing that this is happening at all, but if they gave it a chipper, upbeat ending we swear we will burn Universal Pictures to the ground and say the Earth Liberation Front did it.

Opens March 2.

THE INHERITORS

Austrian director Stefan Ruzowitzky’s 1998 period piece focuses on a group of put-upon peasants who inherit a murdered farmer’s land, sparking off all sorts of tensions with other landowners and among themselves. Part of the ongoing Bridges to the World international film festival.
