Scenes from ‘Notorious’ and ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’

The Trylon's annual Hitchcock festival begins tonight at the Heights with one of this Claude Rains stan's faves. And I'll have more on two of this weekend's opening movies tomorrow—one really good, one very not good.

Ratcatcher (1999)
Lynne Ramsay's debut feature is grim as fuck: Set during a 1973 Glasgow trash strike, it follows a 12-year-old, housing project-dwelling boy who watches his friend drown. But the film's attentiveness to the child, and to his surroundings, makes Ratcatcher something much more than misery tourism.

Morvern Callar (2002)
A young Scottish woman (Samantha Morton) wakes up to learn that her boyfriend has killed himself and left behind a novel manuscript and a mixtape.
