'Playtime' (FILM) Jacques Tati's masterpiece Playtime finds his stock character, the forever-bemused Monsieur Hulot (who was beginning, in 1967, to lose even his creator's affection) receding against a brilliant panorama of technology and tourism, pushy gadgets and antiseptic glass. There's something new to look at in every corner of Tati's elaborate frames, so even if you saw the superior 70 mm print at SIFF in 2004, it's worth seeing it again on 35. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 267-5380. 7 and 9:30 pm, $5—$8.50.) ANNIE WAGNER
