New in the FILM MOVEMENT special section Karen Cries On The Bus (2010)�A new Colombian film about a woman who leaves her husband, hoping for a fresh start. NEW from the WARNER ARCHIVES Assignment to Kill (1968)��Richard Cutter isn�t like most insurance investigators. Instead of being equipped with actuarial tables, he�s armed with a handgun and a dismissive wit. �Why do you carry a gun?� asks the exec hiring him to probe a case of multimillion-dollar insurance fraud. �It�s more effective than a hammer,� Cutter replies. Patrick O�Neal brings unshakeable sangfroid to the role of Cutter in this zigzag tale of corporate cover-up and death that�s less Bond-like in its pacing and style and more akin to the methodical maneuvering of Harry Palmer.� It co-stars Joan Hackett and John Gielgud. Avalanche Express (1979)��U.S. undercover agent Harry Wargrave has a straightforward assignment: escort a Soviet defector on Europe�s Milan-to-Rotterdam train, then cross the Atlantic and deliver his charge to Washington like a package. Easier said than done. Commandos are out to stop Harry � and a new weapon may be deployed in this patriot game: a devastating avalanche� Robert Shaw (the Jaws star�s final film) is the calculating, freedom-bound Marenkov. Academy Award� winner Lee Marvin plays dutiful, cynical Wargrave. And Linda Evans, Maximilian Schell, Horst Buchholz, Joe Namath and Mike Connors all earn their cloak-and-dagger badges as the story bullets from streets to iron rails to the sea.�

Dark of the Sun (1968)��Take elite commandos, send them on a do-or-die assignment � and sit back and watch the action explode� Rod Taylor and Jim Brown are among a mercenary unit rolling on a steam train across the Congo, headed for the dual tasks of rescuing civilians imperiled by rebels and recovering a cache of diamonds. The film�s violence is fierce, unforgiving, ahead of its time. Quentin Tarantino would offer a tribute of sorts to this red-blooded wallop of a cult fave by using part of its compelling score in Inglourious Basterds.� We mentioned that fact in this blog post. Double Man (1967)��If a role in the 1950s through �70s called for a commanding presence and a brooding resolve, one of the era�s go-to actors for the part was Academy Award� winner* Yul Brynner (The Magnificent Seven, Westworld). In The Double Man, Brynner brings those qualities to the role of CIA agent Dan Slater and � without revealing the intriguing circumstances � to the role of a rival look-alike spy. The action, paced by Oscar�-winning* director Franklin J. Schaffner, unfolds in the scenic Tyrolean Alps, where Slater shows up after the reported skiing-accident death of his son, unaware that his arrival is all part of a devious Cold War gambit. Britt Ekland plays a beauty who may or may not be a participant in that covert plot.� Hearts of the West (1975)��Iowa farm boy Lewis Tater has a brainstorm: instead of continuing the correspondence courses that are learnin� him to write cowboy novels, he�ll travel to the out-West school itself and soak up the campus atmosphere first hand. He arrives to find the school is a postal box. Write �em, cowboy. Tater�s adventures don�t stop there in an acclaimed tumbling tumbleweed of a film that has him earning his spurs in the yippie-yi-o of �30s �B� Westerns, complete with a veteran sagebrusher (Andy Griffith), a savvy script girl (Blythe Danner) and a hilariously inept director (Alan Arkin, the New York Film Critics Award choice as the year�s Best Supporting Actor). Jeff Bridges plays Tater, a likable pilgrim as fresh-faced and innocent as Bridges�s decades-later Rooster Cogburn in True Grit is worn and wise.� Kona Coast (1967)��Brace for an explosive story of violence and reprisal set against the stunning backdrop of the Hawaiian Isles. To avenge the death of his murdered daughter, charter boat captain Sam Moran (Richard Boone) becomes a one-man vigilante squad taking on the wealthy, drugged-up punk that killed her � and the rich and powerful that protect him.� Naughty Marietta (1935)��Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald first teamed in this lively Victor Herbert operetta about the romance between a swaggering soldier and a French princess. Determined to avoid an arranged marriage, the royal takes on her maid's identity and hops aboard a cargo ship headed to New Orleans. But when the vessel is hijacked by pirates, she unexpectedly finds love with her rescuer. With Frank Morgan, Elsa Lanchester; songs include �Live for Today, �Tramp, Tramp, Tramp,� �Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life,� and more.� Once Before I Die (1966)��Soon after the World War II attack on Pearl Harbor, soldiers of the Rising Sun unleash their fury on other U.S. outposts. Among their targets: the Philippines, whose defenders include the 26th Cavalry, an underequipped American unit better suited for playing polo than fighting mechanized war. Out of this backdrop storms Once Before I Die, a strife-filled tale of a beauty amid the beasts of war. Ursula Andress, who burst to prominence as James Bond�s bikini-clad island girl in Dr. No, plays the beauty. She�s Alex, a lone woman forced by circumstance to accompany the cavalrymen (including John Derek, Richard Jaeckel and Ron Ely) in a desperate march across the jungle. Ahead lies the hoped-for safety of Manila. Behind: the steadily advancing invaders. In between: the chaos and brutality of a war which defies all escape�and claims all innocence.� Sweethearts (1938)��The time-worn stage chestnut is a �play-within-a-film� for this frothy Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy musical comedy, written by Dorothy Parker and Alan Campbell. MacDonald and Eddy play a married acting couple who plan to leave Broadway for Hollywood, but impresario Frank Morgan plots to stop them. With Ray Bolger, Florence Rice, Mischa Auer. 24 Hours to Kill (1965)��Engine trouble causes an Athens-bound passenger jet to divert to Beirut for a 24-hour layover. �There is no reason to worry,� the pilot announces. Perhaps there�s no reason while in flight, but there are plenty of reasons on the ground: a crewmember�s covert involvement with a gold-smuggling cartel puts the lives of all the crew in danger.� It stars Lex Barker and Mickey Rooney.

NEW DOCUMENTARIES About Jenny Holzer��For more than 30 years, Jenny Holzer�s name has stood for a conceptual art that questions our perceptions and the way we are influenced by media and politics. Holzer has made LED signs�typically identified with advertising�her trademark. These blinking, flickering text displays, designed to captivate and sway passersby, have been repurposed by Holzer since the early 1980s.

Living on the margins of society, these artists give voice to an American individuality in such uniquely personal styles of creative expression, they challenge distinctions between �fine� and �folk� art.� Color of Your Socks: A Year With Pipilotti Rist��The documentary The Color of Your Socks - A Year with Pipilotti Rist follows the Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist as she prepares for a major show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

For the first time, she lets a documentary filmmaker into her world, providing insight into her creative process, the development of projects and the collaboration with her team.�

Frontline: Football High��High school football has never had a higher profile, with nationally televised games, corporate sponsorships and minute-by-minute coverage on sports websites.
