It's a wonder that between the sexed-up hijinks and the syphilis treatments Gustav Klimt had time to become both one of history's most important symbolist painters and one of its most accomplished painters of the female form. On Wed., MAY 30, the Goethe-Institut showcases 2006's KLIMT (pictured), acclaimed Chilean director Raul Ruiz's surreal-bordering-on-experimental vision of the artist's life. Ruiz mixes fact and fantastic fugue and captures the conflicts between turn-of-the-century Vienna's starched-collar moral watchdogs – many of whom deemed Klimt's work "pornographic" – and the artists such as Klimt (John Malkovich) and Egon Schiele (played by Klaus Kinski's son Nikolai) who pushed the limits of both artistic and personal expression. $4. 7 p.m. 1197 Peachtree St., Colony Square. 404-892-2388. www.german-institute.org.
