NOW PLAYING IN CINEMAS

This week's premieres


Dear Wendy (Môj miláčik ráže 6,65) - Drama by Thomas Vinterberg. Written by Vinterberg's Danish mentor Lars von Trier, Dear Wendy has been described as a meditation on guns and violence in America that resembles von Trier's 2003 film Dogville.

Hostel - Horror by Eli Roth. Extremely graphic and disturbing gore fest about American college buddies backpacking through Europe who are lured to a mysterious Slovak hostel that's actually a torture dungeon .

The Assassination of Richard Nixon (Zabijem Nixona) - Drama by Niels Muller. Sean Penn stars in this true story about a man who attempted and failed to assassinate US President Richard Nixon. Don Cheadle and Naomi Watts also star.

Land of the Dead (Krajina mŕtvych) - Horror by George Romero. For the fun fourth movie in his legendary Dead series (which began with 1968's Night of the Living Dead), Romero gives the zombies the ability to think - bad news for the remaining humans who have locked themselves in heavily guarded communities. Dennis Hopper, John Leguizamo, Asia Argento, and Simon Baker star in this enjoyable, but flawed installment.

Munich (Mníchov) - Drama by Steven Spielberg. A bit more emotionally restrained than much of his work, Spielberg's latest is all the better for it. He uses the assassination of Israeli athletes by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics to poignantly explore issues of violence, patriotism, and the current culture of Islamic fundamentalism, terrorism, and fear.
