-- Only in LA would there be an Emilio Estevez directorial double-feature hosted by bro himself. Tonight at the Aero they will screen a sneak preview of "Bobby" followed by "The War at Home". Q&A with Mr. Estevez between films.

-- The New Beverly is having a David Lynch double-feature (maybe he will show up and bring his cow). The films will be the creepy "Blue Velvet", and the X-rated version of "Wild At Heart".

-- "F*CK", the documentary about the infamous expletive, opens tonight at the Nuart. Filmmaker Steve Anderson will be in-fucking-person for Q&A tonight and tomorrow at the fucking 5:00 & 7:30 screenings.

-- Our favorite literary blog, The Elegant Variation, recommends tonight's Short Fiction series in Beverly Hills at 8pm. Actors read from Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits, the debut story collection from Laila Lalami (a USC grad), who will also be making an appearance.
