Tampopo To celebrate the National Evening of Science on Screen, The Belcourt has planned a full night around the 1985 contemporary Japanese classic about a widower and her ragtag band of bros obsessed with finding the perfect way to cook noodles. Black Dynasty Raman will be on hand to serve yakisoba. Dr. Mark T. Wallace (Professor and Louise B. McGavock Endowed Chair in Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University) will host a post-screening discussion.

Screening at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 28th.

John Wick: Chapter 4 The globe-hopping finale to the Keanu Reeves assassin series may overstay its welcome by twenty minutes and spend too much time setting up heirs to the franchise’s obligatory expanded universe, but it’s still an unforgettable ballet of action scenes and moral quandaries that make it the biggest blast at the movies since Top Gun: Maverick.

Now playing in theaters.

Pacification International arthouse royalty Albert Serra helms a meditative tale of a high-ranking French official in Tahiti keeping up appearances and fending off talk of renewed nuclear testing. An early contender for best film of the year.

Now playing at The Belcourt.

The Lost King An amateur historian (Sally Hawkins) finds Richard III’s remains in a car park and exposes academia’s bloated pretensions in this true story costarring and written by comedian Steve Coogan.

Now playing in theaters.

Bheed The largest migration in India since the 1947 Partition happened during COVID lockdowns. This Hindi film dramatizes it all with nary a tired comment about toilet paper or masks. The perfect movie to see after you realize John Wick 4 had nearly two-dozen COVID police crew members while you wait for its post-credits scene.

Now playing at Regal Hollywood 27.

Jacir A Syrian immigrant from the streets of Memphis  fends off the dark side of the American Dream in this clumsy bit of current events pablum that screened at the 2022 Nashville Film Festival and has garnered the type of on-set controversy about which its target audience typically loves to rage.

Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20.

A Good Person Zach Braff—Scrubs doofus and visionary director of Garden State—directs his wildly talented ex-girlfriend Florence Pugh in a maudlin indie opus about a woman who turns to opioids after a tragic accident and bonds with her would-be father-in-law (Morgan Freeman).

Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20, Regal Hollywood 27, and Regal Green Hills 16.

The School of Magical Animals This aptly titled German Harry Potter ripoff has a Goodwill budget, a CGI-fox sidekick, and shoddy craftsmanship that will make parents wish theaters were still closed for COVID.

Now playing at AMC Murfreesboro 16 and AMC Thoroughbred 20.

Geographies of Solitude Eco-friendly filmmaking techniques brought to life this “playful and reverent collaboration with the natural world filled with arresting images and made with an activist spirit” that follows a naturalist living in the Northwest Atlantic. Remember that as you circle the Belcourt’s lot for twenty minutes to find a spot before getting a parking pass printed on non-recyclable paper at the box office.

Now playing at The Belcourt.
