"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," Terry Gilliam's best film in years, isn't due to open until Dec. 25, but for those of you who can't wait, the American Cinematheque has brought back a few of this visionary director's greatest hits. On Saturday, luxuriate in the glory that is "Brazil," a science fiction satire that has lost none of its bite. And on Sunday, revisit the marvelous "Time Bandits," the story of a time-traveling 11-year-old that proves that smartly made films can captivate children and adults alike. At the Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood.
