"Article 99" is a comedy-drama that explores the madness ongoing in an understaffed, underbudgeted, overcrowded VA hospital. Kiefer Sutherland and Ray Liotta are among the doctors struggling with the system. Rated R.

"American Me" follows as a charismatic and gifted Hispanic-American rises in the world. Unfortunately, the profession he has chosen is crime, and he manages to run the Los Angeles chapter of the Mexican mafia from Folsome prison. Edward James Olmos stars and directed. Rated R.

"The Mambo Kings" watches as two Cuban brothers arrive in the New York of the '50s and bring an infectious new beat with them. Armand Assante stars. Rated R.

"The Double Life of Veronique" is a glossy, romantic and mysterious Polish-French production that stars the luminous Irene Jacob and plays with themes of mystical doubleness in the universe. That's OK because we get to see Irene Jacob twice. Rated R.
