BEST OF ENEMIES Not rated. 87 min­utes. Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts. See re­view, Page 68.

COP CAR In this small, dark in­die film, Kevin Ba­con plays a small-town sher­iff who is a bit of a meanie. When two teenagers take his car for a joyride, he un­der­takes a jour­ney to track them down. Who knows what will hap­pen when he finds them, but the trailer prom­ises vi­o­lence on par with a Coen Broth­ers film. Rated R. 86 min­utes. Jean Cocteau Cinema. (Not re­viewed)

THE FALL­ING Florence Pugh and Maisie Wil­liams play Ab­bie and Ly­dia, two best friends at a strict Bri­tish board­ing school in the 1960s. As the girls be­gin to drift apart, the school is shaken by a faint­ing epi­demic, and Ly­dia takes it upon her­self to in­ves­ti­gate. Not rated. 102 min­utes. Jean Cocteau Cinema. (Not re­viewed)

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Di­rec­tor Guy Ritchie gave Sher­lock Holmes an ac­tion-packed, sexy, styl­ized gloss in two re­cent films. Now, he does the same for The Man From U.N.C.L.E., based on the 1960s tele­vi­sion show. Henry Cav­ill (Man of Steel) is Napoleon Solo, a CIA agent who part­ners with Illya Kuryakin, a KGB op­er­a­tive (Ar­mie Ham­mer), to save the world from a crim­i­nal net­work with ac­cess to nu­clear weapons. Rated PG-13. 116 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown; Dream­Catcher. (Not re­viewed)

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMP­TON In the late 1980s, the hip-hop crew NWA stormed the na­tional scene with a dou­ble-plat­inum record, FBI threats, no­to­ri­ous tours, and more — ef­fec­tively pop­u­lar­iz­ing “gangsta rap.” This dra­matic film by F. Gary Gray charts the group’s rise from the streets of Comp­ton, Cal­i­for­nia. Mem­bers Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson Jr.) and Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins) be­came ma­jor me­dia moguls. Paul Gia­matti plays their op­por­tunis­tic man­ager, Jerry Heller. Rated R. 147 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown; Dream­Catcher. (Not re­viewed)
