'Mala Noche'

Why: Originally released in 1985, Gus Van Sant's directorial debut features the least conflicted homosexual protagonist in cinema history. Based on Walt Curtis's autobiographical novel of the same name, Mala Noche follows a young Portland man's sweetly obsessive love for a teenage Mexican immigrant. Shot in tough black and white, it's ravishingly amoral, bracingly original, and back on the screen in a new 35 mm print. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 329-2629. 7 and 9:15 pm, $8.50.)
