>•A MIGHTY WIND Christopher Guest's often hilarious mockumentary affectionately sends up the folk scene. (PG-13)

•LILYA 4-EVER A 15-year-old girl in the rubble of the former Soviet Union sinks from poverty to prostitution. This tragically grim journey also inches toward something that may be divine love. Both shattering and mysteriously elating. Subtitled. (R)

•THE MATRIX RELOADED Further cyberadventures. Keanu Reeves flies like a superhero but the movie nearly crashes like a computer. (R)

•RESPIRO Valeria Golino, best known as Tom Cruise's girl in Rain Man, plays a woman whose madness disrupts her Sicilian village. Meant to be more poetic than clinical, but poetic mental illness feels phony these days. Subtitled. (PG-13)
