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


Terry Gilliam's great 1985 movie about a future that looks an awful lot like the one where Winston Smith lived in Nineteen Eighty-Four screens as part of the Melt Bar & Grilled Late Shift series. Cedar Lee Theatre. At midnight Saturday, February 4.

The Fall of the House of Usher

A moody 1928 version of Edgar Allan Poe's classic plays as part of the Artists of the Silent Screen series. Cinematheque. At 5 p.m. Saturday, February 4, and 6:30 p.m. Sunday, February 5.

Paul Goodman Changed My Life

Documentary about the New Left sociologist who wrote Growing Up Absurd. Cleveland Museum of Art's Morley Lecture Hall. At 7 p.m. Friday, February 3, and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, February 5.
