  Cinephiles who admire the pop art of the '60s should find plenty to dig in "CQ," first-time director Roman Coppola's two-films-within-a-film homage to the fantastical European movies of that era. "CQ" is set in Paris during 1969. Paul (Jeremy Davies), an expatriate American filmmaker, is shooting an autobiographical avant-garde piece while working as an editor on "Dragonfly," a sci-fi spy thriller. He's also falling in love with the starlet (Angela Lindvall) in "Dragonfly," to the distress of his girlfriend (Elodie Bouchez). When the director (Gérard Depardieu) of "Dragonfly" is fired, Paul sees a chance to advance his career and enhance his love life. The plot mechanics invited allusions to film auteurs such as Vadim and Godard and outlandish movies such as "Barbarella" and "The 10th Victim," and Coppola went for it. If "CQ" feels a trifle flimsy, it's visually creative and cinema-savvy. Cameos by Giancarlo Giannini ("Swept Away"), John Philip Law ("Barbarella") and Dean Stockwell up the coolness quotient.
