Picks and Pans Review: Also Playing

Autumn Spring: In this enchanting, bittersweet Czech comedy, a roguish elderly gent (the late, great Vlastimil Brodsky) refuses to act his age, much to the frustration of his loving wife. If only Walter Matthau were still alive; he'd be perfect for the sure-to-come Hollywood remake. (PG-13)

Don't Tempt Me: Penélope Cruz amuses herself more than viewers playing a swaggering assistant to Satan who battles it out with an angel for a boxer's soul in this overwrought, philosophical Spanish comedy. (R)

Passionada: A Portuguese-American widow (Sofia Milos of TV's CSI: Miami) is wooed by an English card sharp (Jason Isaacs) in an underdeveloped wisp of a feel-good love story. (PG-13)

Stoked: The Rise and Fail of Gator: An intriguing documentary looks at Mark "Gator" Rogowski, a top pro skateboarder who, after fame and hard living took their toll, ended up in prison for killing a young woman. (Not rated)
