URBANIA (R) Not to be confused with the Urban Legends slasher flicks, Urbania is a dark journey into the psyche of Charlie (Dan Futterman), a haunted man struggling to come to terms with his sexuality and past. Through flashbacks, the movie shows how urban legends have affected his life.
THE WATCHER (R) Keanu Reeves and James Spader wage psychological warfare in this thriller about a serial killer and the FBI agent who loves to chase him. Reeves stars as the clever psychopath who tempts Spader out of retirement and back into his career-long and macabre obsession of discovering who the next victim will be.
WHAT LIES BENEATH (PG-13) 1/2 After 1 3/4 hours of routine filmmaking, a lengthy, largely terrifying climax tells you whether you've been watching a ghost story or a domestic drama. Directed by Robert Zemeckis with standard shocks and excellent photographic effects, it showcases Michelle Pfeiffer as Claire, who forms an outwardly perfect couple with Norman (Harrison Ford). But Claire has been seeing -- or thinks she's been seeing -- a ghost. Which is in greater danger, their marriage or one or both of their lives? This is a fair-to-middlin' tale of a fair-to-middle-aged couple and whatever comes between them -- or brings them together. -- SW
THE YARDS (R) 1/2 Mark Wahlberg is the trusting, decent ex-con who returns from a prison stint to find himself knee-deep in the dirty dealings of his uncle's business, a corrupt subway manufacturing dynasty located in a particularly dismal section of Queens. Director James Gray has a knack for moody atmosphere and establishing a sense of place, but his story has many hard-to-ignore gaps in logic and never gives its fine cast of actors enough of a story to sink their teeth into. -- FF
