Two of my favorite directors are working on a film together! "Werner Herzog and David Lynch are teaming for "My Son, My Son," a horror-tinged murder drama based on a true story... Herzog and his longtime assistant director Herbert Golder co-wrote "Son," loosely based on the true story of a San Diego man who acts out a Sophocles play in his mind and kills his mother with a sword. The low-budget feature will flash back and forth from the murder scene to the disturbed man's story. A guerrilla-style digital video shoot on Coronado Island is tentatively set for March."

:: Tonight ::

Man, too many shows to check out tonight: Here's a run down of the shows we're going to see: Kelly Tunstall & Ferris Plock @111 Minna - Daniel Tierney @Steven Wolf - Creativity Explored Celebrates 25 years!!!! - AND A LOT MORE (big weekend for openings) ... Of course down at 49 Geary they'll be going nuts with openings that you should check out. If you're heading down there their openings run from 5:30 - 7:30pm and we'd recommend getting there early as the place packs up quickly making art viewing annoying and quite sweaty to boot. Ugh...
