Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus A textbook example of arthouse gone awry, this highly stylized movie applies an annoying what-if approach to the story of photographer Diane Arbus (Nicole Kidman)—fictionalizing a life that had real drama aplenty. (R)

Copying Beethoven Like Fur, this film tells the story of a made-up character (played by Diane Kruger) who encounters a famous figure (Ed Harris as Ludwig van Beethoven). In this case it halfway works: Harris is splendid—as is the music. (PG-13)
