TOP FIVE Chris Rock gets his Woody Allen on, writ­ing, di­rect­ing, and star­ring in this talky New York-cen­tric rom-com about a world-fa­mous co­me­dian (Rock) who is try­ing to stay sober, break into drama, and cope with the pub­lic na­ture of his re­la­tion­ship with a re­al­ity star (Gabrielle Union). The whole story, staged around an in­ter­view with a jour­nal­ist (Rosario Daw­son), al­ter­nates be­tween funny and flat. It doesn’t al­ways work, but it’s heart­felt, and you come away hop­ing that Rock gets the chance to make more films in a sim­i­lar style. Rated R. 102 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY Few sci­ence fic­tion films have had the im­pact of Stan­ley Kubrick’s 1968 epic space jour­ney. From its open­ing se­quence, set at the dawn of hu­mankind, which tran­si­tions in a cel­e­brated shot to a dis­tant fu­ture, the Kubrick-and-Arthur C. Clarke-penned opus sets the stan­dard for the genre — and has never been equaled. Kubrick’s taut, claus­tro­pho­bic film boasts breathtaking spe­cial ef­fects by Dou­glas Trum­bull, a mem­o­rable clas­si­cal score, and re­al­is­tic de­pic­tions of life in space that trump most of the sci-fi that fol­lowed. Its themes of the ori­gins of hu­man in­tel­li­gence and the ul­ti­mate fate of hu­man ex­is­tence still res­onate. Rated G. 160 min­utes. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Michael Abatemarco) UN­BRO­KEN An­gelina Jolie gets back in the di­rec­tor’s chair to tell the true story of Louis Zam­perini (Jack O’Con­nell), the Olympic run­ner who sur­vived a plane crash in World War II, 47 days on a life raft, and more than two years of abu­sive treat­ment in Ja­panese pris­oner-of-war camps. Rated PG-13. 137 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Not re­viewed) WILD In 1995, in­ex­pe­ri­enced hiker and cam­per Ch­eryl Strayed strapped on a back­pack and cov­ered 1,100 miles of the Pa­cific Crest Trail. Her mem­oir re­count­ing that trek be­came a best­seller in 2012. This mov­ing, ruggedly beau­ti­ful adap­ta­tion of her book — di­rected by Jean-Marc Val­lée ( Dal­las Buy­ers Club), with a screen­play by Nick Hornby, and star­ring Reese Wither­spoon — seems des­tined for sim­i­lar suc­cess. Val­lée and cin­e­matog­ra­pher Yves Bélanger cap­ture scenery and set­tings with deft cam­er­a­work, and the sto­ry­telling is hon­est, vivid, and non­judg­men­tal. Rated R. 115 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den)
