Indie and foreign films have a tougher time than ever in today’s marketplace, which is why I want to call your attention to an import that’s truly worth seeing—even though you may not have heard much about it. Nora’s Will has won a number of film festival awards, which got my attention. I also put considerable stock in Menemsha Films, the small, dedicated distributor that has taken on its U.S. release. They tell me that business actually increased after its first week at the Paris Theater in Manhattan because of strong word-of-mouth; now it’s opening at a number of Laemmle Theaters in Los Angeles, with other cities to follow in the weeks and months ahead.

Umgawa! Every generation has its own image of Tarzan, from beefy Elmo Lincoln in 1918 to Disney’s muscular animated incarnation of 1999, but for die-hard movie buffs, former Olympian Johnny Weissmuller remains the definitive Ape Man. What’s more, the films that cemented his image as Edgar Rice Burroughs’ lord of the jungle have retained a special fascination for anyone who grew up with them, when they were new in the 1930s or years later on television.

It’s hard to take a dull picture in Yosemite—though my shot of the famous granite Half Dome poses no threat to Ansel Adams.

I know, I know: this sounds like TV-movie fodder. But Conviction isn’t a formulaic feel-good saga. It is based on a true story that takes many unexpected turns, and I found it quite moving.
