20th Century Fox


"Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters," directed by Ben Shapiro. An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life -- moviescapes crystallized into a single frame. Crewdson takes inspiration as much from his own dreams and fantasies as the worlds of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Edward Hopper and Diane Arbus. Crewdson's imagery has also infiltrated the pop culture landscape -- including his inimitable "Six Feet Under" ads and Yo La Tengo album art. Not rated.

Showing at: Portland Museum of Art, 6:30 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday.
