TOOTH FAIRY Dwayne “The Rock” John­son stars as a hockey player who is sum­moned to Fairy­land for reck­less “dis­sem­i­na­tion of dis­be­lief” and sen­tenced to two weeks’ Tooth Fairy duty. The movie is a cheap knock­off of The Santa Clause filled with puns, dou­ble en­ten­dres, and sickly sweet dare-to-dream mes­sages. Rated PG. 101 min­utes. Re­gal North, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den) THE WHITE RIB­BON This is a med­i­ta­tive por­trait of what ap­pears to be a pas­toral vil­lage in 1913-1914 Ger­many. As this is a film from film­maker Michael Haneke ( Caché), life in the burg is any­thing but idyl­lic. In his ex­am­i­na­tion of gen­er­a­tional con­flict and a coun­try on the brink of war, Haneke doesn’t lament the loss of in­no­cence — he ar­gues that we are never in­no­cent. Rated R. 144 min­utes. In Ger­man with sub­ti­tles. CCA Cin­e­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Robert Ben­ziker) SHUT­TER IS­LAND The lat­est ex­pertly crafted col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween di­rec­tor Martin Scors­ese and ac­tor Leonardo DiCaprio is also one of the best thrillers in years, adapted from a novel by Den­nis Le­hane and filmed in the noir-hor­ror tra­di­tion of pro­ducer Val Lew­ton. It tells a tale of two U.S. mar­shals who in­ves­ti­gate an es­cape at an is­land asy­lum for the crim­i­nally in­sane and dis­cover that ev­ery­thing there is not as it seems. Rated R. 138 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe. (Robert Ben­ziker) A SIN­GLE MAN This de­but from fash­ion de­signer Tom Ford re­counts a day in the life of Ge­orge (Colin Firth), a lit­er­a­ture pro­fes­sor mourn­ing the death of his long­time lover (Matthew Goode). The film is metic­u­lously tai­lored and beau­ti­fully styled — some­times overly so — but it’s also touch­ing and heart­break­ing. Rated R. 101 min­utes. CCA Cin­e­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den)
