“I'm stunned, cousin,” says a well-dressed man who arrives at a countryside estate near the end of John Bock's film Dandy, not long before meeting his death. “You shouldn't be stunned,” says his cousin, who owns the manor and has been employing the well-dressed man's beautiful sister as a sort of muse and assistant. The film would resemble a period miniseries on the BBC if not for all its eccentric sculptures, green gels and contraptions. Bock's is one of five artist's films playing in Regen Projects' current show, each given its own room and each compelling — it's worth going back a few times to take it all in. 6750 Santa Monica Blvd., Hlywd; through Oct. 26. (310) 276-5424, regenprojects.com.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 14. Continues through Oct. 26, 2013
