Lita Ford cap­tures the essence of the band’s strug­gle to make it big be­fore im­plod­ing in 1978. Ste­wart, Fan­ning, and Michael Shan­non de­liver strong per­for­mances. Un­for­tu­nately, they are over­shad­owed by weak char­ac­ter devel­op­ment and a story rid­dled with rock-’n’-roll-movie clichés. Rated R. 109 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Rob DeWalt) THE SE­CRET OF KELLS This an­i­mated film cen­ters on a young boy who sets out to com­plete the Book of Kells and fights Vik­ings and a ser­pent god along the way. It was nom­i­nated for a 2010 Academy Award for Best An­i­mated Fea­ture but didn’t reach Amer­i­can the­aters un­til now. Not rated. 75 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed) SHUT­TER IS­LAND The lat­est ex­pertly crafted col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween di­rec­tor Martin Scors­ese and ac­tor Leonardo DiCaprio is also one of the best thrillers in years, 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 North, 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 heart­break­ing. Rated R. 101 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den)
