Reel WorldThe Guild hosts two homegrown, independent films shot here in New Mexico on Friday, July 29, (The Bigfoot Election), and Saturday, July 30 (Bad Posture). Also on Friday, the KiMo screens Inside Job, Charles Ferguson’s eye-opening documentary about what brought about the catastrophic meltdown of America’s financial institutions. That film will get underway at 8 p.m.
Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Unpredictable romantic comedy marries drama and a big-name cast for lovable results
It probably won’t appear this way on the movie theater marquee, so it’s worth noting the complete, correct title of Crazy, Stupid, Love. (two commas and a period).
