The Projector: Movies opening Friday, Nov. 27

NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU—Eleven directors teamed up to present an 80-minute film broken into eight 10-minute segments. Based on the idea of Paris, I Love You, this film introduces viewers into the wondrous and vibrant beats of New York City through snippets of city living. (R) Flicks

NINJA ASSASSIN—As young boy, Raizo (Korean pop star Rain) is orphaned and must fight to survive among his fellow castaways; scarred and battered, he doesn't break. Raised to become a ninja assassin, a betrayal pits him against the very clan he was raised to protect. Directed by James McTiegue (V for Vendetta), this is a bloody, action-packed flick. (R) Edwards 9, Edwards 22

OLD DOGS—The director of Wild Hogs revisits the theme of old guys trying to stay young. Best friends and business partners Dan (Robin Williams) and Charlie (John Travolta) are faced with the challenge of raising children while simultaneously embarking on the biggest business deal of their career. It's a lot of cliches and a little bit of mildly funny Disney humor. (PG) Edwards 9, Edwards 22

You The Living (Du Levande)—In this dark, absurd comedy by Swedish director Roy Andersson, a large woman wearing a shiny military helmet rides naked atop a thin prone man; a tiny gent with a bouquet of right orange flowers rings the bell of a dingy door; and a girl dreams she marries Micke Larsson, guitar player for the Black Devils, and they wave goodbye to well wishers standing at the platform as their apartment building pulls out of the station. The New York Times calls this film "slow, rigorously morose and often painful in its blunt reckoning of disappointment and failure. It is also extremely funny." (Not Rated) Flicks

And although the following film is already open, we just wanted to remind you of this perfect animated diversion for the kids with too much time on their hands this holiday weekend. (The grownups will like it, too.)

FANTASTIC MR. FOX—It's "pure, wild, animal craziness" inspired by the work of Roald Dahl and directed by Wes Andersen. Discover the fabulous world of Mr. Fox (George Clooney) and his super-sneaky-spy crew on a mission to keep the rude and rowdy farmers from demolishing their homes. It's Ocean's 11 with a delightful animation twist. (PG) Edwards 9, Edwards 22
