Your best bets for Monday are:

I Am Love – We haven’t seen Tilda Swinton just a ton since she won the best supporting actress Oscar in 2008 for Michael Clayton. Apparently she’s been busy learning Italian for this film. In it, she plays the wife of an Italian mogul who has her eye on another man connected to the family. Cue conflict.  (4:15 p.m., Angelika)

Sweet Science – Dallas filmmaker Chris Howell follows a group of young boxers working out of an Oak Cliff boxing gym with hopes of making the U.S. Olympic team.  In the seven years that he tracked their progress, multiple tragedies strike the hopefuls, with prison and death each rearing their ugly heads. When I talked to Howell at a preview party for the festival, he told me he shot more than 600 hours worth of footage for the film. Howell was our guest on Friday’s television edition of Think; we’ll be sure to get the video up later today.  (7 p.m. Angelika)

Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child – If you saw Julian Schnabel’s 1996 film Basquiat, now it’s time to see the doc about the New York artist. The film is directed by Tamra Davis, who was a friend of the artist, and includes lots of archival footage.  (7 p.m., Dallas Museum of Art)
