we_are_x“We Are X” Yeah, it’s awesome.

“Tower” Of course you should see it .

“Touki Bouki.” In this film, a sort of psychedelic Senegalese Bonnie and Clyde story, a young couple will resort to drastic measures to escape Africa and begin a better life in France. 7 to 9 p.m. Friday and Sunday. $10. AFS Cinema, 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. austinfilm.org. — Arianna Auber

“Stroszek.” Werner Herzog’s strange tale of an ex-mental patient in the Berlin slums seeking a second start in Wisconsin is one of the greatest ‘grass is greener’ lessons ever in cinema. 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. Friday. $7-$10. AFS Cinema, 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. austinfilm.org. — Arianna Auber

longposter“The Long Good-Bye.” There was a time when Elliott Gould was the hottest man in motion pictures. Man, the 70s ruled. Robert Altman bends Raymond Chandler’s classic novel to his will. 10 to 11:45 p.m. Saturday. $7-$10. AFS Cinema, 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. austinfilm.org.
