Four fabulous films for Friday

Yes, this blog focuses mostly on the fine arts, but you like good movies, too, right?

Our reviewers raved about four movies in today’s edition of MovieTimes — all playing here this weekend. Click on the titles below to read more:

Higher Ground,” a story about a woman’s spiritual journey, starring Vera Farmiga.

And the week’s big opening, “Contagion,” a thriller starring (get this) Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne and Marion Cotillard (wouldn’t you like to see all of them in an ensemble musical romance?).

Enjoy a weekend at the movies!
