AN­I­MAL KING­DOM This crime drama from the land down un­der prom­ises twists and turns. It cen­ters on a brood of rob­bers and drug deal­ers in Mel­bourne’s un­der­world and the ma­tri­arch who watches over them. Guy Pearce ( Me­mento) plays a de­tec­tive on their trail. Rated R. 112 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed)

THE AMER­I­CAN An­ton Cor­bijn seems to have been con­vinced that he was work­ing in full Euro­pean au­teur mode when he made

The Amer­i­can, but his movie just wound up bor­ing, not artis­tic. Ge­orge Clooney is the Amer­i­can, but his charm is un­der wraps, and he’s given no room to grab hold of the movie. He spends long pe­ri­ods build­ing a gun. The di­a­logue is sparse and not very good, and the plot never adds up. Rated R. 105 min­utes. In English and Ital­ian with sub­ti­tles. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Jonathan Richards)

CAIRO TIME Lonely Juli­ette Grant (Pa­tri­cia Clark­son) trav­els to Cairo to visit her hus­band. While there, she un­ex­pect­edly falls for his best friend, Tareq Khal­ifa (Alexan­der Sid­dig). No word on whether this love af­fair comes with a side of eat­ing or pray­ing. Rated PG. 90 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed)
