OPENING

4 Chiles – CAN YOU BRING IT: BILL T. JONES AND D-MAN IN THE WATERS



What happens to a work of art when time displaces it from its original context and from the impetus that inspired it? That’s a question that can elicit dry theories. But in Can You Bring It?: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters, a new documentary directed by Tom Hurwitz and Rosalynde LeBlanc Loo, the answer is passionate and moving. Jones is the co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, a modern dance troupe. The movie gives a moving précis of their work-life collaboration before addressing the decisions Jones made in the aftermath of Zane’s death. One of those decisions took the form of the piece “D-Man in the Waters.” (The New York Times) Documentary, not rated, 90 minutes, Center for Contemporary Arts Cinema

CONTINUING

BLACK WIDOW

It’s taken almost 20 years for Marvel fans to get the Black Widow movie many of them have been craving. Scarlett Johansson has gotten short shrift over the course of several Avengers movies in which Natasha has been little more than eye candy. So it seems oddly appropriate, if unfair, that when Widow finally arrives, it’s virtually stolen from under her. Natasha (Johannson) collides with younger sister Yelena (Florence Pugh) — who, like Natasha, was a precocious KGB trainee — while on a mission in Europe. As gratifying as it is that Johansson has finally gotten the movie her character has long deserved (not to mention an equally watchable foil in Pugh) Black Widow simultaneously feels like too much and too little. (Ann Hornaday/The Washington Post) Action, rated PG-13, 133 minutes, Regal Santa Fe Place, Violet Crown, Paramount Plus
