The Skin I Live In (Ritz Five) Pedro Almodovar reunites with Antonio Banderas for this over-the-top surgical nightmare.

(Ritz Sixteen) I usually don’t include the Bollywood films since they’re always playing so far away from Philly proper, but this came out last week and it looks like it deserves a plug.  “A video game developer’s world spirals out of control when his shape-shifting indestructible virtual creation becomes all too real.”  And it’s in 3D.  FIELD TRIP!

Like Crazy
(Ritz East) Young lovers torn apart by customs agents.

Mozart’s Sister
(Ritz at the Bourse) Self-explanatory period piece.

Hell and Back Again
(Ritz at the Bourse) Sundance-praised documentary that sounds almost too intense to be real.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas
(wide) Self-explanatory period piece.

Tower Heist
(wide) Ensemble action comedy from everyone’s favorite director.

The Son of No One
(wide) For the Boondock Saints crowd.

And, for some reason, Sarah’s Key returns to Philly for an engagement at the Ritz at the Bourse.  I personally don’t think it will help their Oscar chances.
