The weekly Cine-File Selects screening series begins Monday 1/3 at Doc Films with "Two Lovers," the heartfelt romantic drama whose publicity campaign star Joaquin Phoenix torpedoed with his purportedly staged rap debut/career suicide (as brother-in-law Casey Affleck presented in pseudodocumentary "I'm Still Here.")
