This Is Spinal Tap

Turn it up to 11! The original 1984 “rockumentary” returns, still the best film Rob Reiner has ever made. That’s owing mainly to the writing and improvisational talents of its main cast (including Michael McKean, Christopher Guest, and Harry Shearer). Basically you can’t go wrong with this one. In the immortal words of Artie Fufkin (The Letterman show’s Paul Shaffer), “Do me a favor. Just kick my ass, okay?” (Note additional 3 and 5 p.m. shows, Sat.-Sun.) (R) BRIAN MILLER

Sept. 13-18, 7 & 9 p.m., 2008
