Trance (2013, R)
James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, Rosario Dawson
Danny Boyle’s latest film tries to be a mind-bending thriller, but ends up a head-scratching dud. D+

The Ice Storm (1997, R)
Joan Allen, Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver

The Bay (2012, R)
Michael Beasley, Christopher Denham, Andy Stahl
Keep your eye on the water in this creepy, clever found-footage ecohorror pic. (Available on Netflix instant viewing) A-

Coming Soon
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013, PG-13)
Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis
The Hasbro hard-asses return for more technocratic action fluff. B- 7/30

On The Road (2012, R)

Kerouac’s Beat bible gets a faithful — but inexcusably lifeless — film adaptation. B- 8/6
