ALOHA Cameron Crowe at­tempts to get his nar­ra­tive film­mak­ing groove back af­ter the dis­ap­point­ing El­iz­a­beth­town (2005) and We Bought a Zoo (2011), and he once more traf­fics in af­fairs of the heart.

GHOST IN THE SHELL This iconic 1995 anime film, based on the popular manga by Masa­mume Shi­row and more rel­e­vant than ever, cen­ters on a fe­male cy­borg cop who tries to take down a mys­te­ri­ous hacker known as the Pup­pet Mas­ter and finds her­self pulled into a larger web of in­trigue. Not rated. 83 min­utes. In Ja­panese with sub­ti­tles. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed)

THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WIN­DOW AND DIS­AP­PEARED Swedish comic Robert Gustafs­son plays a man who es­capes from his nurs­ing home on his hun­dredth birth­day and soon finds him­self on the run from both the au­thor­i­ties and some gang­sters. Dur­ing this pur­suit, we flash back to his ear­lier life, where he is in­serted into ma­jor events — in­clud­ing the cre­ation of the atomic bomb. The film is watch­able and has some amus­ing mo­ments, but it never fully gels and is too whim­si­cal for its own good. Rated R. 114 min­utes. In English, Swedish, and Ger­man with sub­ti­tles. Vi­o­let Crown, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker)

IRIS Rated PG-13. 83 min­utes. The Screen, Santa Fe. See re­view,

Page 44. SAN AN­DREAS The dis­as­ter movie is back in a big way with this film. How big? It fea­tures the dra­matic de­struc­tion of all of Los An­ge­les when the Big One hits. That’s not big enough for you? Well, it also stars beefed-up mus­cle­man Dwayne “the Rock” John­son as a he­li­copter pi­lot who must res­cue his daugh­ter. Rated PG-13. 114 min­utes. Screens in 3-D and 2-D at Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Not re­viewed)

THE SEVEN FIVE A lot of drugs are in­volved in this riv­et­ing bad-cop doc­u­men­tary, but none is as po­tent as money, the root of all the con­sid­er­able evil into which Michael Dowd was drawn. Dowd was a cop in Brook­lyn’s scary 75th Precinct in the early ’80s. Along with his sweet-na­tured, weak-willed part­ner Kenny Eurell, he robbed, ex­torted, dealt drugs, pro­tected mob­sters, and worse. The cur­rent out­rage over po­lice tac­tics in cities like Bal­ti­more un­der­scores the in­sti­tu­tional mantra that cops don’t give up other cops, which al­lows bad be­hav­ior to flour­ish. Film­maker Tiller Rus­sell con­structs a fas­ci­nat­ing char­ac­ter study, and the prin­ci­pals are here to­day to tell their own tales. It’s bril­liantly told and in­ven­tively edited, and it makes stan­dard crooked cop dra­mas look like

Turner & Hooch. Rated R. 102 min­utes. Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards)

STARS IN THE DARK: ÉMI­GRÉS, EX­ILES & FILM NOIR The Santa Fe Jewish Film Fes­ti­val hon­ors mem­bers of the bril­liant Jewish film com­mu­nity who fled from Ger­many and other Euro­pean coun­tries af­ter Hitler’s rise to power. The pro­gram is built around the émi­gré in­flux into Hol­ly­wood and its im­pact on the Amer­i­can genre that be­came known as film noir. The fes­ti­val con­tin­ues with var­i­ous events and screen­ings of Ace in the Hole, The Killers, an en­core show­ing of the riv­et­ing doc­u­men­tary Cinema’s Ex­iles:

From Hitler to Hol­ly­wood, and din­ner un­der the stars fol­lowed by the pre­sen­ta­tion of a clas­sic noir at the Four Sea­sons Re­sort Ran­cho Encantado. Through Sun­day, May 31. Screen­ings take place at the Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts. For in­for­ma­tion and tick­ets, visit www.santafe­jff.org. ( Jonathan Richards)
