Brazilian Films, Crystal Method, Art Walk
For those of us who still haven't quit our jobs via an inflated, emergency slide with a cold beer in hand, it's time to celebrate.

- The Brazilian Film Festival opens tonight at the Colony Theatre. They'll be screening the two films that won last year's competition - for free.

ballroom. This Sunday, see Alain Resnais's 1959 proto-New Wave
masterpiece, Hiroshima Mon Amour, where a couple tries to remember the
infamous American bombing as if it were a blurry night on the town.
