The spaghetti western Black God and White Devil, directed by the then-25-year-old Glauber Rocha, is widely considered to be the greatest Brazilian movie of all time. Made in 1964 and set in the 1940s, the film is about a couple trying desperately to eke out a living on a farm, but as they come to realize they can’t, they turn to religion and banditry, eventually becoming outlaws. Get ready for some disturbing scenes, some overacting, some cheeseball costumes and an offbeat soundtrack. They don’t call it a spaghetti western for nothing. 7 p.m. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7515 or visit www.mfah.org. $6 to $7.
