Fingers

A rare chance to see James Toback's dazzling and disturbing study of a hedonistic pianist (played by Harvey Keitel) whose sideline in debt- collecting for the mob sounds some bum notes. Screened in a double-bill with David Fincher's Seven, an astounding film, but one which can really screw up your day.

Fri only, Everyman Cinema, London NW3 (0171-435 1525)

Privilege

In the aftermath of Michael Jackson's narcissistic Brits Awards appearance, this 1967 story of a pop star (played by ex-Manfred Mann singer, Paul Jones) whose image veers toward the messianic has great resonance. If it whets your appetite, call for details of "Swinging Time?", a short course exploring the way British films of the Sixties have affected our understanding of that decade.

Sun 5pm, Cinema City, Norwich (01603-622047)

Fargo

Frances McDormand adds warmth to the Coens' cool-headed thriller.
