Non-multiplex flick picks this week

OSS 117: Lost in Rio

Before they made the excellent The Artist — which is finally playing in Cleveland, so you should go see it — director Michel Hazanavicius and star Jean Dujardin hooked up for a pair of James Bond parodies. The Cinematheque is showing both this week. This 2009 outing crams in most of the things you'll find in one of 007's adventures: bikini-clad women, big-ass weapons, and bad guys with German accents. It's not nearly as awesome as The Artist, but it's funny and in color. At the Cinematheque at 8:45 p.m. Thursday, February 2, and 9:30 p.m. Friday, February 3. — Michael Gallucci
