A father barricades his family behind high walls. To protect them, or to preserve them at any cost? Is this The Village or No Exit? Only the father can leave the middle-class compound with garden and swimming pool. Unfortunately, no walls (or physical and verbal abuse) can stop the teenage children. When the father generously brings home his secretary to teach his son about the birds and bees, one could charitably say that all hell breaks loose. Grisly and hallucinogenic, the movie forces you into a claustrophobic, warped little home that somehow encompasses the world. 7 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, 5 p.m. Sunday. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7515 or visit www.mfah.org/films. $6 to $7.
Thu., Dec. 16, 7 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 18, 7 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 19, 5 p.m., 2010
