EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP Full of com­edy, high jinks, and im­ages of some of the most di­vi­sive art of our time, this is a strange gem of a film. Af­ter the orig­i­nal filmmaker proved in­ept at mak­ing the movie, the sub­ject of the doc­u­men­tary took over. Os­ten­si­bly a pro­file of Banksy, the Bri­tish provo­ca­teur artist, this “pranku­men­tary” shows how over the course of a decade, street art — the post-graf­fiti re­nais­sance of sten­cil­ing, wheat­past­ing, LED art, and sticker bomb­ing in hi­jacked pub­lic spa­ces — trans­formed from a dan­ger­ous un­der­ground artis­tic pur­suit into a highly profitable farce. Rated R. 87 min­utes.

See re­view, Page 64. THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE Part two of the in­ter­na­tional pub­lish­ing and film phe­nom­e­non the Mil­len­nium Tril­ogy picks up where the first one, The Girl With the

Dragon Tat­too, left off, with only a slight dip in qual­ity, which may have as much to do with loss of nov­elty as any­thing else. Noomi Ra­pace is again mem­o­rable as the brood­ing, bristling com­puter ge­nius Lis­beth Sa­lan­der. Rated R. 129 min­utes. In Swedish with sub­ti­tles. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Jonathan Richards) See re­view, Page 64.

I AM LOVE Luca Guadagnino has fash­ioned a sweep­ing melo­drama with the feel of a clas­sic. Tilda Swin­ton (who also pro­duced) is mag­nif­i­cent as the alabaster icon who serves a wealthy Mi­lanese fam­ily as wife, mother, host­ess, and do­mes­tic CEO with pas­sion­less ef­fi­ciency un­til her in­ner fires are kin­dled by a per­fectly pre­pared shrimp and by the young chef with the recipe. The film is su­perbly pho­tographed by the mel­liflu­ously named Yorick Le Saux and bol­stered by a mus­cu­lar John Adams score. Rated R. 119 min­utes. In Ital­ian with sub­ti­tles. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) See re­view, Page 64.

IN­CEP­TION A star-stud­ded cast led by Leonardo DiCaprio and Mar­ion Cotil­lard makes its way through a dream­ing man’s sub­con­scious in one of the strangest vari­a­tions on the heist flick to ever play the mul­ti­plexes. Writer/di­rec­tor Christo­pher Nolan’s sprawl­ing, in­ven­tive ex­am­i­na­tion of dream­ing and for­give­ness rarely fails to en­ter­tain, though, like a dream, it makes more sense while it’s un­fold­ing than it does when it’s over. Rated PG-13. 148 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas & Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Jeff Acker)

WIN­TER’S BONE A 17-year-old girl (Jen­nifer Lawrence) sets out to find her drug-deal­ing fa­ther, who put the fam­ily’s house up for his bail bond and then dis­ap­peared. Along the way, she con­fronts re­sis­tance from within the fam­ily and with­out. This thriller, set in the Ozark Moun­tains, won the Grand Jury Prize: Dra­matic Film at the 2010 Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val. De­bra Granik co-wrote and di­rected.

Dead­wood alumni Gar­ret Dil­lahunt and John Hawkes help round out the cast. Rated R. 100 min­utes. Re­gal

DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed)
