Current movies recommended by the St. Petersburg Times:
1 Bright Star - Poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) finds love and inspiration in Jane Campion's lovely film.
2 Inglourious Basterds - Quentin Tarantino puts his imprint on the war movie genre, sometimes smudged but always fascinating.
3 Capitalism: A Love Story - Is Michael Moore mellowing? His most balanced, mature documentary sometimes feels that way.
4 The Invention of Lying - Ricky Gervais is the only man on Earth incapable of telling the truth, in a satire of near-Biblical proportions.
5 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Don't go hungry to this 3D animated kid-flick, with food dropping from the sky like rain.
All dates subject to change. Platform distribution, where a movie opens in big cities then moves to smaller venues, may lead to later release dates on some films.
