Who's On Top: Movies













Spotlight Movie Of The Week 
The Call

An effectively creepy thriller about a 911 operator and a young miss in peril, “The Call” is a model of low-budget filmmaking. Well, as low as anything starring Halle Berry goes. It’s probable that Ms. Berry was the priciest item in the budget, followed by the movie’s one other conspicuous expenditure, a sprawling 911 dispatch center called the hive. Buzzing with the trills of incoming calls and the hum of reassuring voices, the hive is where every rote greeting — “911, what is your emergency?” — becomes the opening line in a never-ending procession of melodramas, comedies, dramas, tragedies and horror stories like the one that puts the chill in this no-frills diversion. — Manohla Dargis
