THE CLOSET *** (PG) A meek accountant (Daniel Auteuil) passes himself as gay to keep his job in this conventional but satisfying French comedy.

Gerard Depardieu's rugby-obsessed he-man goes to hilarious extremes to prove he's not a homophobe. --Curt Holman

AMORES PERROS *** 1/2 (2000) (R) A trio of stories set in a dystopian Mexico City revolve around a life-altering car crash in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's gripping first feature more indebted to the indie free-styling of Tarantino than the art film legacy of Bunuel.
