2/11–2/17 Listen here, skirts and palookas, it’s time to get off your keisters, put on your glad rags and high-tail it to the fifth annual Noir City, see? This year’s theme is kooks and goofs—crazies, got it? We’re talkin’ a coupla psycho twins (Among the Living, 1941, and The Dark Mirror, 1946), a sexy-creepy heiress (Angel Face, 1952), a hinky baby-sitter (Don’t Bother to Knock, 1952) and a sex addict (They Won’t Believe Me, 1947). The joint is lousy with drifters, jailbirds and boozehounds, and with full series deals and double features, it ain’t even gonna cost you much cabbage. See all 14 films in seven days and count yourself among the jingle-brained. Times vary. $7–$12. SIFF Cinema at McCaw Hall, 123 Mercer St.; 206.633.7151; Brangien Davis
