A Conversation with Vince Gilligan
The writer and producer of The X-Files and screenwriter of Home Fries and Hancock sits down for a chat moderated by producer Barry Josephson. Oh, I almost forgot: Gilligan also created a pretty good TV series you may have heard of—it was called Breaking Bad. If this doesn’t make you wake up early, nothing will. 9am Sat, Oct 26, Stephen F. Austin Hotel Ballroom, 701 Congress.
‘Inside Llewyn Davis’
This is the movie to watch. Winner of the 2013 Grand Prix at Cannes, the Coen Brothers’ latest is a week in the life of the title character, a self-centered folk musician struggling in 1961-era Greenwich Village. The brothers bring back music producer T Bone Burnett and the cast is an alluring mix of stunt casting (JT! Adam Driver!), up-and-comers (Drive’s Oscar Isaac) and regulars (John Goodman). Neither as funny or as dark as previous efforts, Inside Llewyn Davis is instead a soulful meditation on both failure and possibility. 7:30pm Mon, Oct 28, Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress.
