Pretty much all the movies you can see in Twin Cities theaters this week.

Delphine Seyrig in ‘Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles’

Lumières Françaises Film Festival comes to The Main this week, bringing not only several promising new films, but the most recent winner of the British Film Institute's Sight & Sound film poll, Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, which is nearly a full half-hour longer than the new Mission Impossible movie. If you'll scan these listings, though, you'll see that conservative pundit George Will once nominated another movie as the GOAT.
