Grizzly Man in LA
Tonight and tomorrow the New Beverly screens Grizzly Man, directed by Werner Herzog, and Incident at Loch Ness, which stars him riding around the foggy loch in a boat. And because we live in LA, where cool and strange things happen, Werner Herzog himself and Loch Ness' director Zak Penn* will be at the theater tonight, talking about their movies.
If it's eligible, we're guessing Herzog is hoping for a Best Documentary Oscar nomination; Grizzly Man has certainly picked up a slew of awards already. Doesn't matter, really; he made Aguirre: The Wrath of God, which is intense and twisted, and he actually tends to say what he thinks. Should be a fascinating evening.
The only downside we can imagine is that you'll have to stand on the sidewalk in line for tickets, because there are no online sales. But even that has an upside: it's not sold out yet.
* Zak Penn is not related, as far as we can tell, to Chris Penn.
