  • Classic Movies: The Hunt for Red October

    This Tom Clancy thriller gets the proper screen treatment here with this first-rate cast and direction by one of the genre’s best: Die Hard director John McTiernan. The plot centers on the commander of a Russian nuclear sub, who may or may not defect to the United States.

    • Fronterafest 2013: Best of the Fest!

      Fronterafest's all over for another year, people, except for this Short Fringe: Best of the Fest part –and I'm glad to tell you that any night of this line-up is worth seeing, because you'll laugh, you might cry, you will be extremely fucking entertained at all times. [Full disclosure: I helped decide which shows got to be presented again this week.] And "Austin's Best Monologist" – it's true!Steven Tomlinson debuts his new "How to Use Evernote" piece in the Wild Card Bill. You'd best hurry, though, because these nights (and one matinee) of no-fail theatrical enjoyment are selling out so fast you'd think they were Tim Doyle prints or something! See website for full schedule details. Wed.-Sat., Feb. 14-16, 8pm.

    • George Saunders

      You might want to try to get someone to cover your shift at whatever night-time day job you're working, if necessary, so you can hear this Saunders presenting his newest collection, Tenth of December, because he's about as good as it gets, warped-perspective short-story-wise, since DFW's been gone, and you're unlikely to read any other fiction that's more 1) entertaining, 2) deeply considered, and 3) evocative of what it's like to be a fucking human being. Tue., Jan. 22, 7pm (2013)
