Picks and Pans Review: Now Playing
Blood Work Clint Eastwood always makes our day, but there's no getting by the fact that this thriller about a retired FBI agent tracking a killer is, while workmanlike, also anemic. Jeff Daniels costars. (R)
Children of the Century Juliette Binoche turns on the tears while portraying George Sand in a turgid drama about the 19th-century novelist's tempestuous affair with younger writer Alfred de Musset (Benoit Magimel). (In French, with English subtitles. Not rated)
City by the Sea Robert De Niro plays a cop (yet again) hunting down his son in a heavy-handed police drama. Frances McDormand and James Franco costar. (R)
feardotcom Loathsome and inept horror film about a lethal Web site. Stephen Dorff and Natascha McElhone star in this mess. (R)
Mostly Martha In a delicious romantic comedy, two chefs fall in love. (In German, with English subtitles. PG)
Swimfan Everyone outta the pool! Laughably obvious high-school gothic about a swim-team star (Jesse Bradford) being stalked by a demented new classmate (Traffic's Erika Christensen). (PG-13)
