My Darling Clementine
John Ford's 1946 take on the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral stars a solid Henry Fonda (as Wyatt Earp) and a not-so-sturdy Victor Mature (as Doc Holliday) kicking up some dust in the Old West. It's one of Ford's lowest-key westerns and one of his best. The Cinematheque busts out a restored 35mm print for this week's screening, which also boasts an appearance by film scholar Grafton Nunes, who'll talk about the movie. At 7 p.m. Monday, October 25, at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque.
A divorced dad takes his five-year-old son for one last trip before the boy goes to live with his mom far, far away. No, those aren't tears ... I think it's raining in here. The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. At 9:25 p.m. Friday, October 22, and 7:10 p.m. Saturday, October 23.
Documentary based on the bestselling book about the "hidden side of everything." Party poopers. Opens Friday at the Cedar Lee Theatre.

Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child
Documentary about the renegade painter, who died when he was 27. So the movie probably isn't too long. Cleveland Museum of Art Morley Lecture Hall. At 7 p.m. Friday, October 22, and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, October 24.
The Savage Eye
Europeans love this 1960 scathing look at the superficial side of the United States. Fucking Europeans ... The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. At 6:30 p.m. Sunday, October 24.
It's a bloody Viking epic directed by the guy who made Bronson. If that's not enough for you to go see it, maybe you should stay home and knit some socks or something.
