Best Film Series 

International Lens

With Vanderbilt's Sarratt Cinema back in play, a crucial missing puzzle piece has been placed in the city's moviegoing options. Sarratt was many Nashvillians' first exposure to the Nouvelle Vague, midnight movies or early American independents: Now, through this series, the college cinema is bringing in films that either haven't shown here before (e.g., Jacques Rivette's The Duchess of Langeais) or haven't been shown here since Joe B. Wyatt was chancellor (e.g., Fassbinder's The Marriage of Maria Braun). Tough to say which is better: that every screening is authoritatively introduced by a Vanderbilt faculty member, or that all the screenings are free and open to the public. Cheapest date in town, y'all. See the schedule at vanderbilt.edu/internationallens. JIM RIDLEY
