Assault on Precinct 13

A solid, slam-bang action film in which cops and criminals join together to protect a police precinct house from attackers. Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne star in this remake of a 1976 cult movie. (R)

Fascination

    


In a laughably inept crime thriller, a widow (Jacqueline Bisset, lovely as ever) reweds soon after her hubby's drowning, causing her son (Adam Garcia) to suspect the worst. You'll wait in vain for a line of dialogue that isn't hopelessly clichéd. (R)

Born into Brothels

In this don't-miss documentary, deservedly nominated for an Oscar, filmmaker Zana Briski (with codirector Ross Kauffman) gives cameras and photography lessons to the children of prostitutes in Calcutta. The kids' photos are inspiring, as is Briski's quest to enroll the children in a good school. (Not rated)
