On Demand movie highlights

Blue Car

(Showtime on Comcast) Karen Moncrieff’s provocative and unnerving debut film follows the relationship between a lonely, isolated teenage girl (Agnes Bruckner) and her writing teacher (David Strathairn) as they progress from poetry discussions into deeper and clammier waters. “Car” is absorbing drama when it’s not trying too hard, and it also might serve for a bent but worthy mother/daughter bonding night at the movies. (R; runs through July 8)

Breakin’ All the Rules ½

(Starz on Comcast) Cheap but engaging date-night piffle, a sort of uptown African-American revamp of an old Rock Hudson/Doris Day farce. Jamie Foxx plays the author of a how-to-break-up bestseller; Gabrielle Union is his cousin’s girlfriend, with whom he becomes enamored. Their scenes are chatty and charming; the rest is silly mistaken-identity farce. (PG-13; runs through Sept. 14)

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold

(Starz on Comcast) Morgan Spurlock (‘‘Super Size Me’’) is back with another jab at consumer culture. But this documentary about product placement, 100 percent financed by product placement, isn’t exactly knocking down the gates of corporate America with its battering ram of truth and justice. Spurlock is no muckraking Michael Moore and, despite the appearance of Ralph Nader, Noam Chomsky, and Quentin Tarantino, the drama and moral dilemmas are largely manufactured. (PG-13; runs through Aug. 7)
