The Umbrellas of Cherbourg Jacques Demy’s French New Wave pop opera from 1964 about an umbrella salesgirl (Catherine Deneuve in her breakout role) learning the ropes of young dumb love remains one of the best films ever made.

Little Richard: I Am Everything A documentary about Little Richard, whose charisma alone would make most people from all walks of life want to see this movie until they read its description as, “The story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator, the originator.” Kudos for turning a legend with unquestionable mass appeal into a badly researched term paper riddled with buzzwords.

Playing at the Belcourt, AMC, and Regal for select showtimes on Tuesday, 4/11.
