iW THIS WEEK | New in Theaters: "The Savages," "Diving Bell," Protagonist"

Among this week’s specialty releases coming to theaters, Reverse Shot reviewed Julian Schnabel‘s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” this week, with Chris Wisniewski saying that the filmmaker has “carved out a niche for himself crafting visually arresting, loosely conventional movies inspired by the lives of noteworthy artists and writers.” Meanwhile, Michael Koresky concludes that the film, “makes for an engaging look at how we can lie to ourselves even as we search for an elusive truth.” Other films opening in limited release this week include “The Savages” from Fox Searchlight and “Chronicle of an Escape” (Cronica de una fuga) via The Weinstein Company and IFC.
