On Demand movie highlights

Rust and Bone

(Starz on Comcast) From Jacques Audiard (“A Prophet”), a twisted yet surprisingly ordinary love story about a kickboxing single dad (Matthias Schoenaerts) and a killer whale trainer (Marion Cotillard) whose legs get bitten off. Cotillard’s fearsome intensity and the glowing Antibes vibe make it worth seeing. In French, with subtitles. (R; runs through March 31)

Ty Burr

Angel Heart

(Encore on Comcast) Alan Parker’s combined 1955-private-eye caper and supernatural thriller. Despite frame-by-frame richness and a tantalizing mix of street charm and scared-wise guy vulnerability from gumshoe Mickey Rourke, it’s a case of nice try, but no cloven hoof. (R; runs through March 31)


(Starz on Comcast) The most interesting thing about this small, pat drama is the way its alcoholic school teacher never looks drunk — at least, not the way drunken people do in movies. Her face isn’t falling off. It could be just that Mary Elizabeth Winstead isn’t much of an actress or she’s opted not to be that kind of actress. But the movie might need that kind of intensity, since it doesn’t really have anything else. (R; runs through May 1)
