At the Arthouse 

Non-multiplex flick picks

A Screaming Man This new movie from Chad (the country, not some dude) wrestles with lots of Big Questions, including the usual one about God's existence. A sixtysomething man, and former champion swimmer, loses his job as a pool attendant at a swanky hotel. Making matters worse: The guy's gig is handed over to his son. Hurt and humiliated, he won't let go. If it sounds a little like F.W. Murnau's classic The Last Laugh, that's the point. At the Cinematheque at 5:40 p.m. Friday, July 8, and 1:10 p.m. Sunday, July 10.— Michael Gallucci
