Broken Flowers (Not rated)

Director: Jim Jarmusch. With Bill Murray, Sharon Stone, Jeffrey Wright, Chlóe Sevigny. (106 min.)

Staff **1/2 See review, at right

The Chumscrubber (Not rated)

Director: Arie Posen. With Camilla Belle, Ralph Fiennes, Jamie Bell, Glenn Close. (102 min.)

Sterritt **** Suburban teens and their parents grapple with family tensions, antisocial impulses, and each other. At once dreamily surreal, acutely intelligent, and strikingly tough-minded, this pitch-dark dramatic comedy recalls David Lynch and "Donnie Darko" while remaining fresh and original to its core. A stunning directorial debut. - By David Sterritt

The Dukes of Hazzard (PG-13)

Director: Jay Chandrasekhar. With Johnny Knoxville, Seann William Scott, Jessica Simpson, Burt Reynolds, Willie Nelson. (106 min.)

Staff * The Duke cousins, Luke and Bo, want to operate an "honest" business running their Uncle Jesse's moonshine, but must battle crooked politician Boss Hogg and his puppet, Sheriff Coltrane. The plot involves the boys' attempt to thwart Hogg's secret plan to turn Hazzard County into an open coal mine, but it's really just an excuse for endless car chases. Updated with cussin', pot smokin', and more sex than fans will remember from the TV series. By M.K. Terrell

Grizzly Man (R)

Director: Werner Herzog. With Timothy Treadwell, Werner Herzog, Amie Huguenard, Franc G. Fallico. (103 min.)

Sterritt **** Documentary about a highly peculiar nature enthusiast who lived in the woods with bears and recorded his close encounters on video, until one of his wild neighbors decided to eat him. As revealing about Herzog as about his subject, the movie is brilliant, poetic, and utterly unique. - D.S.

Junebug (R)
