  • Austin Film Society: The Creative in Crisis: 8 1/2

    Mastroianni plays a film director who's just had a huge hit but is struggling to find an idea for his next project. Between fits and starts, he goes back through his life and confronts all his demons. And what a cavalcade of demons! This new AFS series has been curated by the Chronicle's Kimberley Jones, who will present each film. For more on the series, see "The Pen May Be Mightier Than the Sword, but Sometimes It Makes You Want to Slit Your Wrists," p. xx. Read a full review of 8 1/2.

      The man's been tearing up stages in San Francisco (Sketch Fest) and Montreal (on Just For Laughs' The Nasty Show), you reckon he's ready to rock this Cheese Palace with his smart brand of f-f-f-filth, with that lanky lighthouse of laughter John Buseman opening? We think so. May 1-2. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm, $10

    • Rough House 2 Release Party

      Here comes the second comix anthology from those relentless cultural movers and shakers of Raw Paw, featuring a cover by Russell Etchen and color interiors chock full of sequential art by Melinda Tracy Boyce, Mack White, Brendan Kiefer, Victoria Grace Elliott, Colin Zelinski, and more. The collection's personal, pretty, raw, pensive, ugly, fierce, and absurd – just the way we like 'em. Bonus: This release party's got free drinks and on-site T-shirt printing. Thu., May 1, 8-10pm.
