Greenberg; Terribly Happy; Verboten!

Greenberg
(Focus, $30)
Few films trigger “such equal loathing and love” as Greenberg, said New York. Noah Baumbach’s latest study of “overeducated Gen-X malaise” stars Ben Stiller as a cynical, “aging hipster” forced to grow up during a visit to Los Angeles. Baumbach is a “sharp, perceptive chronicler,” even if his main character can be hard to take.

Terribly Happy
(Oscilloscope, $30)
Denmark’s nominee at this year’s Academy Awards is an “intriguing” take on the typical cop thriller, said The Washington Post. The film follows a Copenhagen cop sent to work in a remote village after having a nervous breakdown, and its “offbeat black comedy is more often dark than comic, bringing to mind the Coen brothers.”

Verboten!
(Warner, $28)
This 1959 film is one of the odder products of Samuel Fuller’s “inventively inconsistent” career, said The New York Times. He used newsreel and stock footage to add veracity to the love story of an American GI and a German woman. “His readiness to embrace contradictions—stylistic, emotional, ideological”—keeps his work fresh.
