Do not expect a knee-slapper from this comedy. Expect the pain of two people living together, told with a knowing smile and sigh. If you've been married more than 30 years, as has the couple in "Le Week-End," you might find parallels.

We've all had this happen: a dear one dies and we start to see her in crowds -- just the back of a head or the turn of a hand makes us think we've seen him, that the beloved is not a memory. "The Face of Love" goes beyond that.

In "Enemy's" opening minutes," Canadian director Denis Villeneuve signals that his film will pose a conundrum more than a story. Text on screen announces, "Chaos is order yet undeciphered." After a subsequent scene of some vague sexual display, the plot becomes more straightforward while remaining tantalizingly elusive. "Enemy" remains a film for viewers who like intriguing, but puzzling experiences.

The motivation behind "Bad Words" comes out about mid-way through this short film. I won't spoil that, but I will say, don't hold your breath because it is not reason enough for the shenanigans that go on before and after the reveal.

Imagine that! a dog adopting a human for a change. Well, that is just what Jay Ward and his minions did on their breaks from the "Rocky and Bullwinkle Show." They imagined a very, very smart dog in charge of the education of a very willing boy.

After starting off with peculiar films, such as "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums," he created that bliss of entertainment he called "Moonrise Kingdom" last year. Now, with Hugo Guinness, he has written a confectionary script that's a story within a story within etc.

Director Yuval Adler set and shot his film "Bethlehem" on location in that divided city where the central character, Sanfur, gets caught between the Palestinian resistance and his Israeli Secret Service handler Ravi. A quick-tempered Palestinian teenager, Sanfur embodies the fractured identity and impossible conditions of his troubled environment. He literally and figuratively makes himself a target.

Shoot me: that's a joke, not a command. It refers to filming, as in shooting a film, but anyone who has been around Elaine Stritch knows that it's the sort of thing she would say. "Just shoot me" sounds like a Stitchian response to things-gone-wrong.

In August 2010, aboard the 11.5 meter, two-masted ketch Guppy, 14-year-old Laura Dekker set off from her home Dutch port, hoping to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world.

Eleven years ago, Teller, of the celebrated team of Penn and Teller, read David Hockney's book "Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the Lost Techniques of the Old Masters." He became curious about 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer.
