FAHREN­HEIT 11/9

With a Repub­li­can pres­i­dent in the White House af­ter eight years of Obama, it’s time for Michael Moore to sur­face with a doc­u­men­tary that pokes and prods him. His lat­est doc­u­men­tary ref­er­ences sev­eral of Moore’s pet top­ics: He calls back to Fahren­heit 9/11 with the ti­tle (taken for 11/9/16, the day Trump’s elec­toral col­lege vic­tory was an­nounced), re­vis­its the gun con­trol de­bate of Bowl­ing for Columbine by track­ing the school-shoot­ing sur­vivors-turned-ac­tivists David Hogg and Emma González, and re­turns to his Michi­gan home­town set­ting of Roger & Me by ex­plor­ing Flint’s cur­rent wa­ter cri­sis. Rated R. 125 min­utes. Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts; Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed)

THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS

Film­maker Eli Roth rose to promi­nence with bru­tal, R-rated hor­ror movies such as Hos­tel. Here, he tries his hand at cater­ing to the Goose­bumps crowd, adapt­ing the 1973 young adult novel by John Bel­lairs into a scary movie about a young or­phan named Lewis (Owen Vac­caro) who moves in with his un­cle Jonathan (Jack Black), who lives in a house that has a tick­ing clock in its walls. He soons finds that his un­cle is a war­lock, and their next door neigh­bor Florence (Cate Blanchett) is a witch. When Lewis dab­bles in spells and ac­ci­den­tally sets an evil spirit (Kyle MacLach­lan) free, the three of them must make right and save the day. Rated PG. 104 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed)

LIFE IT­SELF

In this life­time-span­ning ro­mance, Os­car Isaac and Olivia Wilde play a cou­ple who fall in love, get mar­ried, and have children. Writer and direc­tor Dan Fo­gel­man uses this story to jump back­ward and for­ward in time, and even take view­ers to Spain (for a love story headed by Antonio Ban­deras) to show how events echo and re­ver­ber­ate through time and space. Mandy Patinkin, An­nette Ben­ing, and Olivia Cooke also star. Rated R. 118 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed)
