Get Low½

(Starz on Comcast) A charming but slight period piece that might be called ‘‘Boo Radley: The Final Years.’’ Robert Duvall plays a hermit in 1930s Tennessee who wants to hold his funeral while he’s alive. It’s a spikily sentimental fable that’s finally a touch too ordinary. With Sissy Spacek and an entertainingly miscast Bill Murray. (PG-13; runs through July 31)

Lebanon ½

(Starz on Comcast) On one level, Samuel Moaz’s debut feature is a stunt: a war movie shot entirely inside a tank rolling through the first days of Israel’s 1982 Lebanon War. The scalding moral arithmetic that equates the crew’s voyeurism with ours brings the film close to greatness, though. In Hebrew, Arabic, and English, with subtitles. (R; runs through July 31)

Oz the Great and Powerful

(Starz on Comcast) This unofficial prequel has 3-D, the latest computer effects, and Sam Raimi behind the camera. But, alas, a lightweight James Franco is in front of the camera as a feckless young magician whisked to Oz. There are glorious moments, but the film never finds its groove. With Rachel Weisz (great), Michelle Williams (good), and Mila Kunis (sorry, no). (PG; runs through Aug. 31)
