BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB
(Comcast Movies and Events) Musician Ry Cooder and filmmaker Wim Wenders went to Cuba to capture on film a handful of jazz giants whose careers have been in limbo during the Castro era. Finding them alive and vital, this documentary provides them with a chance to restart their careers, which ignite irresistibly in a pair of concerts. Sheer joy. (G; runs through Oct. 15)

DEAD CALM
(Encore on Comcast) A couple (Nicole Kidman, Sam Neill), after a month at sea on their yacht, are terrorized by a young psycho. This Australian psychological thriller has terrific razzle-dazzle technique but shallow psychology. (R; runs through Oct. 15)

ROMANCING THE STONE
(Encore on Comcast) This romantic-adventure tale is a direct descendant of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,’’ but neither Michael Douglas nor Kathleen Turner capture the excitement of their ancestor. (PG; runs through Oct. 15)
