ZERO DARK THIRTY

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) It’s a movie made with the same coolly fanatical attention to craft the lead character displays in her work. Director Kathryn Bigelow is now recognized as one of our true filmmaking naturals — she always has been, even when no one was looking (1987’s “Near Dark”) — and “Zero Dark Thirty” holds us in its grip for 157 minutes, much of which is about people being stymied. (R; runs through June 19)

ON THE ROAD

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Stolid as this “On the Road” often is, it has an outsider’s eye for the beauties of America’s physical and emotional landscape, and it shares the reckless excitement of its young seekers while standing just far enough outside to see the damage they leave in their wake. (R; runs through June 21)

THIS IS 40 ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) A “sort-of sequel” to 2007’s “Knocked Up” that focuses on that film’s supporting characters, Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), as they grapple with a stalled marriage. Judd Apatow has made a contradiction in terms — a personal Hollywood comedy — that has good coarse laughs without ever coming to a point. (R; runs through Aug. 28)
