Magical Universe is a documentary about Al Carbee — an eccentric and reclusive Maine artist who makes elaborate dioramas populated by Barbie dolls, fevered drawings and collage, and oddball home movies — and the friendship Carbee forms with Jeremy Workman, the New York filmmaker who made this movie. It screens at the Portland Museum of Art (7 Congress Square) this weekend; today at 2 p.m. Tix: $8. 775-6148. portlandmuseum.com.
