Twelve Monkeys

Terry Gilliam's unnerving time-travel thriller doesn't hang together too well, but it remains an absorbing attempt to give 20th-century disorientation physical shape. And if that sounds too pretentious, there's always Brad Pitt rolling his eyes and flashing his behind.

On general release

My Dinner with Andre

Louis Malle's deliriously intelligent chamber piece with Wallace Shawn (author of the new play The Designated Mourner) and Andre Gregory wrestling with love and death in a hushed New York restaurant. Understated playing, stimulating conversation, great company, all surprisingly cinematic - what more could you ask for?

Sun 8.45pm, NFT SE1, London (0171-928 3232)

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead

A handful of late-night previews of this acclaimed American independent thriller. Andy Garcia is trying to go straight but accepts one last job from The Man With The Plan (Christopher Walken). The rent-a-weirdo cast includes Christopher Lloyd, Treat Williams and Steve Buscemi.

Sat, various London venues, check local press; opens 3 May
