TANGLED Fairy-tale spoofs were tired be­fore Shrek started rock­ing out to Smash Mouth songs, and some­one should prob­a­bly read the genre a bed­time story and shut off the lights. But they’re an easy sell, so here’s an­other one — and sure enough, it’s a big hit. Dis­ney’s an­i­mated ad­ven­ture helps the Ra­pun­zel tale let its hair down and in­jects it with what it has al­ways lacked: snark and self-aware hu­mor. Rated PG. 92 min­utes. Screens in 2-D only at Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Not re­viewed) THE TOURIST Johnny Depp plays Frank, an Amer­i­can in Italy who en­coun­ters a femme fatale named Elise (An­gelina Jolie). She some­how tricks au­thor­i­ties into think­ing Frank is a ma­jor crim­i­nal, and a cat-and-mouse game full of plot twists en­sues. This re­make of the 2005 French film An­thony Zim­mer is di­rected by Flo­rian Henckel von Don­ners­marck ( The Lives of Oth­ers). Rated PG-13. 103 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Not re­viewed) UN­STOP­PABLE Den­zel Washington is a 28-year vet­eran en­gi­neer tu­tor­ing a first-day rookie (Chris Pine) on a Penn­syl­va­nia train when hell breaks loose, thanks to an un­manned run­away train. Martin Bom­back’s script fea­tures lik­able but flawed char­ac­ters, and Tony Scott’s di­rec­tion is on the money when it comes to edit­ing, act­ing, and ac­tion. The per­form­ers give a sense of in­ten­sity to their char­ac­ters, but it wears thin af­ter a bit. Still, it’s a good film that should ap­peal to all ages. Rated PG-13. 98 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Robert Nott) VIS­UAL ACOUS­TICS: THE MOD­ERNISM OF JULIUS SHUL­MAN If you love the Mod­ernist homes built in the Case Study House pro­gram and oth­ers de­signed by ar­chi­tects in the mid­dle of the 20th cen­tury, you will find a bit of nir­vana in this doc­u­men­tary film by Eric Bricker. Nar­rated by Dustin Hoff­man, it fea­tures in­ter­views with other ar­chi­tects and crit­ics as well as seg­ments with Shul­man and scads of dy­namic vi­su­als. Not rated. 83 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Paul Wei­de­man)
