On Demand movie highlights


(Starz on Comcast) The 95 minutes spent listening to former secretary of defense Robert McNamara explain his roles in World War II, Vietnam, and the Cold War achieves both a lasting chill of relevance and blood-quickening intensity. This stirring documentary consists of interviews between the then 85-year-old McNamara and the filmmaker Errol Morris, though their conversations often feel more intimate and surreal than a director interrogating his subject. He’s in confession. (PG-13; runs through June 10)

Wesley Morris


(Starz on Comcast) There’s plenty of style and talent in this old-fashioned ghost story aboard a World War II American submarine. If only the frightful foreplay led to something scarier and more satisfying. (R; runs through June 13)

Janice Page



(Showtime on Comcast) Peter Riegert is fun to watch as a veteran hit man coming unglued while tutoring Jason Priestley’s alienated young designated hitter. Most of the rest of it comes up short on laughs and inventiveness — it seems skimpy. (R; runs through July 30)
