WEINER (USA, R) - This is a political movie about a disgraced congressman. It takes you deep inside Anthony Weinerís failed campaign. This documentary was supposed to capture the glory of his return to politics, but it just ends up proving once and for all what a wiener Weiner is.

METASCORE: 84, based 33 Critics
DARK HORSE: THE INCREDIBLE TRUE STORY OF DREAM ALLIANCE (UK, PG) - Unlike the other recent movie entitled THE DARK HORSE, this movie is actually about a horse rather than a disgruntled chess prodigy. This one's so inspired by real events that it's a documentary. It's about some regular Welsh folks who decide to breed a really good race horse for a prestigious race and encounter much snobbery.
DIRECTED BY: Louise Osmond

SCHNEIDER VS. BAX (Netherlands, Not Rated) Ė I dated a man named Schneider once - worst decision ever. If you're out there and reading this I hope you know how much I hate you. That said, this movie is about a hit man who, on his birthday, promises his wife he won't kill anyone for the day but then he does anyway. Looks like all Schneiders have their priorities totally out of whack. Okay, okay, enough airing my dirty laundry, but in all seriousness, I totally hate that guy.
DIRECTED BY: Alex van Warmerdam
STARRING: Tom Dewispelaere, Alex van Warmerdam, Maria Kraakman
