Deathwatch (KCAL Sunday at noon). Bertrand Tavernier made a stunning English-language debut with this 1980 release, an ambitious and dazzling allegory set in a disease-free future. Enter ruthless TV magnate Harry Dean Stanton, who realizes that the death and the dying that has been so carefully removed from daily life may well be exploited as real-life soap opera.

Hiroshima Mon Amour (Bravo Monday at 8 p.m., Tuesday at 1 a.m.) Alain Resnais' 1959 landmark film, a sensual, stylish reverie in which images and perceptions of World War II are filtered through a romance between a French actress (Emmanuele Riva) with a troubled past and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada).

The Famine Within (Cinemax Thursday at 8 p.m.) A 1990 Canadian documentary more interesting for its subject, women and food, than handling information with style.
