Hitchcock/Truffaut Essential viewing for anyone who cares deeply about movies and the people who make them. Using audio recordings from a weeklong interview session between the young, upstart French New Wave director and the then-63-year-old Master of Suspense, documentarian Kent Jones brings Hitchcock's genius - and perversions, and dark psychological underpinnings - to life. With commentary from contemporary directors, including Wes Anderson, David Fincher, Richard Linklater, and Martin Scorsese. PG-13

Creed From Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, in collaboration with screenwriter Aaron Covington and with the generous, genuinely inspiring participation of Sylvester Stallone. The Rocky mantle gets handed off to a new underdog determined to fight his way to glory. It's Adonis Creed, son of Rocky's rival-turned-pal Apollo Creed - and Michael B. Jordan takes the title role, body and soul. PG-13

Room A woman and her 5-year-old are held captive in a shed - the only reality the boy, born there, has ever known. Amazing, gripping, scary, beautiful adaptation of the Emma Donoghue novel (by the writer herself), deftly directed by Lenny Abrahamson. Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay are extraordinary as mother and son. R
