LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD: The classic French film Last Year at Marienbad is being shown at the Film Forum in New York through Jan. 31st. The 1962 film has inspired uncommonly strong reviews and is part of Roger Ebert's Great Movies series. From the Film Forum's description:
Perhaps the ultimate puzzle film, with dizzying time shifts and flashbacks, real or imagined—or are they shifts into the subjunctive? Possible solutions have included the Orpheus-Eurydice myth; a visualization of the process of psychoanalysis; or the whole as a kind of stream-of-consciousness of a single mind, encompassing truth, lies, and visualized whatifs.

You can see the trailer here.
