THE TREATMENT 3 stars (R) A neurotic prep-school teacher (Chris Eigeman) falls for a beautiful widow (Famke Janssen), despite his preoccupation with his tough-love Freudian therapist (Ian Holm), who may or may not exist. The film's therapy-based comic conceit feels painfully out of date, but Eigeman's solid, shtick-free performance makes The Treatment feel like more than just another Woody Allen wannabe. -- Holman

TRIAD ELECTION 3 stars (NR) A young Hong Kong gangster (Louis Koo) finds his efforts to go legit derailed by the election to become chairman of Hong Kong's criminal gangs. Director Johnny To crafts a tense, efficient morality tale with some memorably horrific violence, but the film feels a little too familiar and doesn't achieve the genre grandeur of Infernal Affairs (remade as The Departed) or John Woo's crime flicks.

YOU KILL ME (R) Ben Kingsley and Téa Leoni team up as a recovering-alcoholic hit man and his supportive girlfriend, respectively in John Dahl's killer comedy co-starring Luke Wilson and Bill Pullman.
