Best Improved Film Programming 

Sarratt Cinema

Here it is, folks: the cheapest movie date in town, and maybe the best. Nimbly recusing itself from the art-movie dogfight at Green Hills, where one to four poorly promoted films a week maul each other for no audience—adios, Baghead, Frozen River and My Blueberry Nights—Vanderbilt's reinvigorated campus cinema is providing a valuable service by catching the films that fall through the cracks. Spearheaded by Ph.D. candidate Sarah Childress, with financial support from philanthropist cinephiles Scott and Mimi Manzler, Sarratt's "International Lens" series has been astounding: films by established masters such as Taiwan's Tsai Ming-liang (I Don't Want to Sleep Alone), Iran's Abbas Kiarostami (Ten) and Killer of Sheep director Charles Burnett (My Brother's Wedding) alongside recent films from France (Heartbeat Detector), Israel (Stalags) and Lebanon (Caramel). Best of all, the screenings are introduced by Vanderbilt faculty and are free and open to the public. Calling Ms. Cheap. —JIM RIDLEY
