Army of One (Not rated)

Director: Sarah Goodman. With Sara Miller, Nelson Reyes, Thaddeus Ressler (71 min.)

Sterritt **** Concise, humane documentary following three young people through their early days as US Army recruits post-9/11. Contains truly eye-opening moments.

Fear X (PG-13)

Sterritt **** An ordinary man goes on a creepy quest after his wife's death in what appears to be an accident. Written by Refn and Hubert Selby Jr., this thriller is ingeniously woven with motifs suggesting the difficulty of seeing and understanding truth, and substitutes psychological chills for commonplace gore. Music from Brian Eno adds a crowning touch.

Sterritt *** Jewish life in Argentina is the focus of this comedy-drama about a man whose curiosity about his long-absent father takes a new turn when the faraway dad returns from Israel for a visit. Lively, gentle, smart. In Spanish with subtitles.

Los Olvidados (Not rated)

Director: Luis Buñuel. With Alfonso Mejía, Alma Delia Fuentes, Miguel Inclán, Roberto Cobo. (80 min.)

Sterritt **** This masterpiece of 1950 is a brutally candid tale of Mexican street life, laced with Bunuel's surrealistic touches. Unforgettable. Also known as "The Young and the Damned." In Spanish with subtitles.
