With its striking black-and-white photography, Alphaville turns 1960s Paris into an icily dehumanized city of the future. With an irreverent and idiosyncratic mix of science fiction, pulp characters, and surrealist poetry, the film stars Eddie Constantine as an intergalactic version of the iconic gumshoe Lemmy Caution, who’s on a mission to kill the inventor of the fascist computer Alpha 60. (99 mins., DCP)
