"A Mighty Heart" opens in Little Rock today.  Manohla Dargis of the The New York Times writes, "“A Mighty Heart” is effectively fashioned, as jolting as it is polished, as well as a surprising, insistently political work of commercial art."  Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times describes the film as "moving and frighteningly real."  Peter Travers of Rolling Stone reaps praise on Angelina Jolie: "the film belongs to Jolie. She won an Oscar for 1999’s Girl, Interrupted, but this is by far her best performance, strong and true in every detail from Mariane’s accent (her roots are Dutch and Afro-Cuban) to the strength she shows under fire. Her total immersion in the role keeps the film from getting lost in the rush of details. Even after Daniel’s death and subsequent beheading, Mariane holds Daniel’s spirit close. Jolie sees to it that the humane and haunting A Mighty Heart honors that spirit."

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
