Current movies recommended by the Times

1. Apocalypse Now Redux -- Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 masterpiece gets more than spruced up, with 49 extra minutes making his trippy Vietnam epic clearer, funnier and more fascinating. Tampa Theatre only.

2. The Deep End -- Tilda Swinton gives an award-worthy performance as a mother resorting to any means to spare her son from a murder charge. Beach Theater only.

3. Down from the Mountain -- Bluegrass greats in concert playing the music fromO Brother, Where Art Thou? A top-tapping, heart-lifting experience; only at Channelside Cinemas.

4. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back -- Kevin Smith strikes again with a profane, hilarious Hollywood satire. Not for all tastes because it's so tasteless.

5. Alma -- A daughter (local resident Margie Thorpe) confronts her abused past while cherishing the parents responsible for it. Friday night only at USF's Bayboro campus, but well worth arranging your schedule.
