HEAVEN

(Showtime on Comcast) The last script written by the late, great Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski . . . [was] directed by Tom Tykwer of “Run Lola Run” fame, with Cate Blanchett as a mournful vigilante bomber and Giovanni Ribisi as the holy-fool cop who helps her escape from prison. It’s a weird mash-up of Kieslowskian redemption and Tykweresque action, but pellucid camerawork and otherworldly performances put it over. (R; runs through April 30)

Ty Burr

ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE ½

(Showtime on Comcast) Cate Blanchett reprises her role as the Virgin Queen. The year is 1585, and she’s still trying to save herself and her kingdom. Clive Owen is in romantic pursuit, and the Spaniards want to start a holy war. There’s no urgent reason for this movie to exist. Historians might demand a little more history. But soap opera loyalists could hardly ask for more soap. With Geoffrey Rush, Abbie Cornish, Jordi Molla, and Samantha Morton. (PG-13; runs through April 30)

ALIVE

(Showtime on Comcast) An aesthetically breathtaking film about members of a Uruguayan rugby team whose plane crash lands in the Andes. In a not so aesthetically pleasing gesture, the survivors of the crash end up resorting to cannibalism, feasting on the flesh of their dead teammates. (R; runs through April 30)
