A film from out of the past, set in the future, and more than ever concerning the present — that can only be “Alphaville,” Jean-luc Godard’s 1965 sci-fi detective story and a work that rages against the machine decades ahead of schedule. Rarely re-released to theaters and hard to find on video, it’s appearing at the Kendall this week in a restored digital print with fresh subtitles. But nothing about this strange, moving work of agit-pop has ever seemed out of date. If anything, “Alphaville” moves closer to relevance with every passing year.
