We Were Here


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
It would have been understandable had “We Were Here” veered into the maudlin. The documentary, which recounts how San Francisco’s gay community united in the 1980s to combat the AIDS epidemic, has its share of gut-wrenching stories. But the film is admirably no-frills.

The Muppets


Comedy

Rod Lott
Jason Segel (“Bad Teacher”) may be the best and worst man for the job of bringing Jim Henson’s Muppets back to top-of-mind pop-culture status.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


Thriller

Rod Lott
As not-so-boldly predicted, director David Fincher (“The Social Network”) delivers a superior remake of Sweden’s global hit “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” an adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s phenomenon of a novel.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Thrills are muted but chilling in the espionage tale of ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.’


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
For a guy named Smiley, the central character of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” doesn’t do a lot of smiling.

Carnage

Can’t we all just get along? Roman Polanski’s amusing comedy of manners, ‘Carnage,’ answers in the negative.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Given the tumultuous and tragic nature of director/child rapist Roman Polanski’s life, it’s no surprise he rarely touches comedy. Until the new “Carnage,” only 1967’s “The Fearless Vampire Killers” and 1986’s flop “Pirates” gunned for laughs.

Bad cop, good movie.
