MELANCHOLIA

(Showtime on Comcast) Lars von Trier, the bad boy of art-house cinema, delivers a rather lifeless ode to cosmic misery, despite Kirsten Dunst’s valiant performance. Gorgeous visuals, disastrous weddings, and a planet about to collide with Earth: Some call it Art. I say it’s spinach and I say the hell with it. With Charlotte Gainsbourg and Keifer Sutherland. (R; runs through March 27)

CHICAGO

(Showtime on Comcast) This shaky but ultimately electric film of the Kander-Ebb musical tells the tale of two Jazz Age murder­esses (Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones) vying for fame. Smartly, director Rob Marshall turns the movie into a psychological case study on Zellweger’s vamp; cheaply, he makes most of the songs fantasies.
