Alkaline Trio: CRIMSON

FILM

Sharpen your mind 'cause you're going to need it. Peter Keough says, "Anyone expecting from Batman Begins a lazy immersion in spectacle, thrills, and faux "terror" will be disappointed. Those looking for a thoughtful, poetic fable about what's most frightening in our lives today may not be fully satisfied either, but this is the movie for them."

Douglas Wolk looks at Batman and his portrayal throughout the years.

This week's trailers:
THE PERFECT MAN
THE HONEYMOONERS

Worth the Trip:
"Safety Last: The Films of Harold Lloyd" at the Brattle Theatre.

THEATER

Worth the Trip:
Laughing Wild by the Huntington Theatre Company at the Calderwood Pavilion.

ART

An eggshell may just be an eggshell to you, but watch how an artist places it and it takes on a whole other meaning. "Cornucopia: 21st-Century Still Life" satisfies or at least intrigues our minds more than our eyes, says Bill Rodriguez.

"The Quilts of Gee’s Bend" at the Museum of Fine Arts.
The Contemporary Sculpture Path at Forest Hills Cemetery.
"Signs of Life" at the Revolving Museum LAB Space.

BOOKS

Bill Rodriguez calls David Hosp's Dark Harbor, "not only a page-turner, but a particularly well-written one."

TELEVISION

Hot dots: SUNDAY 19: 9:00 (44) Independent Lens: End of the Century: The Ramones and Joe Strummer Rocks Again. Two punkish documentaries cover 20 years of their music and bickering, with archival footage of Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy, Joey, et al.

FOOD

No time machine needed. Chris Conti dines at Classic Café for some old school flavor and flare.
