>THE BUTCHER BOY By turns wildly comic and brutal, director Neil Jordan’s audacious film tells the chilling tale of an Irish lad’s evolution from misunderstood hooligan to nasty sociopath. Young star Eamonn Owens is a find. With Stephen Rea and Fiona Shaw. (R)

THE BIG ONE Michael Moore, the self-promoting documentary filmmaker who took on General Motors in Roger & Me, is at it again. This time, he’s taking breaks from his book tour to badger Philip Knight, the head of Nike, and various other corporate fat cats. Scathingly funny. (PG-13)
