Die-hard film fans will not want to miss Hungarian director György Pálfi's meticulous compilation film, "Final Cut: Ladies and Gentlemen." Over the course of three years, Pálfi and his team edited together clips from 450 different movies into a more-or-less coherent boy-meets-girl narrative, an engaging compendium of scenes where a moment from "Gone With the Wind" is cheek by jowl with one from "The Incredibles." A hit at numerous festivals, including Cannes, Telluride and New York, it may never have a conventional commercial run because of inevitable rights issues. It screens Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave. Los Angeles. (323) 655-2510.
