YOU AGAIN High-school ri­val­ries are re­newed for both Marni (Kris­ten Bell) and her mom (Jamie Lee Cur­tis) when Marni’s ri­val Joanna (Odette Yust­man) and her pas­sive-ag­gres­sive mom (Sigour­ney Weaver) show up in their lives again. Rated PG. 105 min­utes. Re­gal North, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed) WASTE LAND In Rio de Janeiro at Jardim Gra­ma­cho, the world’s largest dump, work­ers liv­ing in a tin-roof shan­ty­town spend their days wad­ing through waste heaps and build­ing an un­likely com­mu­nity of mu­tual sup­port and ad­mi­ra­tion. Into this sur­real world comes Vik Muñiz, an artist who has con­cocted pho­to­graphic por­traits from cot­ton tufts, sugar, dirt, and choco­late sauce. He makes friends with the Gra­ma­cho cata­dores, per­suad­ing them to make soc­cer-field-size por­traits of them­selves us­ing the garbage that they spend their days sort­ing. The art is top-notch and the film is a lov­ing por­trait. Not rated. 98 min­utes. In English and Por­tuguese with sub­ti­tles. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Casey Sanchez) Dou­glas nicely reprises his Os­car-win­ning role; the fine cast in­cludes Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mul­li­gan, Frank Lan­gella, and Josh Brolin; but the script doesn’t pack enough punch where it counts in the dra­mat­ics of the fi­nan­cial melt­down, and it doesn’t give Gekko enough solid ma­te­rial to re­store his for­mer rep­til­ian luster. Rated PG-13. 127 min­utes. Re­gal North, Santa Fe. (Jonathan Richards) YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER Woody Allen’s an­nual movie isn’t a bar­rel of laughs this time, but it’s re­li­ably amus­ing, if dark and dys­pep­tic. Life is mean­ing­less, and all our strug­gling just drives us deeper into the ditch. For­tunetelling is hokum but no more so than any­thing else. A dis­tin­guished cast led by An­thony Hopkins, Gemma Jones, Naomi Watts, and Josh Brolin keeps this hop­ping. Rated R. 98 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Jonathan Richards)
