Released this week: Babel, Flushed Away, For Your Consideration, The Godfather of Green Bay, Man of the Year, The Prestige, Shut Up and Sing.
For Your Consideration: In Christopher Guest's tragicomedy, a movie's cast and crew become slightly unhinged when a rumor of Oscar nominations sweeps through the studio backlot. Catherine O'Hara, as a hilariously bad actress clinging to the Ladder of Success' bottom rung, sets the tone for the film, which has you laughing one moment, swallowing the lump in your throat the next.
The Prestige: Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale turn in intense performances as rival magicians who obsessively battle one another in turn-of-the-century London. Director Christopher Nolan delights in the story's bizarre crosses and double-crosses.
