Reel World

Correction--Last week, Reel World ran a crew call for the new low-budget horror film Gimme Skelter, which will be lensed this spring by local moviemakers Exhilarated Despair Productions. Seems they're looking for a reliable makeup effects person willing to get down and dirty with the film's many blood-soaked scenes. The e-mail address we ran, however, was incorrect. If you're interested in showing off your skills alongside such horror legends as Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), you should send your résumé to

La Mujer de Mi Hermano

South American drama proves more soapy than sexy

You could say that Zoe and Ignacio Edwards are a happily married couple. Except that they aren't. At least not the “happily” part. After spending a few minutes inside their household, viewers of La Mujer de Mi Hermano will realize that--despite owning a successful factory, having an ultramodern house complete with indoor/outdoor pool and generally looking like a couple of models straight off the pages of GQ--the Edwards have a fairly chilly relationship.

The 1st Annual Independent Indigenous Film Festival

In many ways, the Guild Cinema is the perfect place to host the Independent Indigenous Film Festival. The word “indigenous” is defined as, “Belonging to a place: originating in and naturally living, growing or occurring in a region or country.” Being the only independent, locally owned movie theater left in Albuquerque, the Guild is a unique belonging of our local arts scene. Would you hold a festival celebrating and fostering indigenous cultural values and identity in a vast megaplex owned by an out-of-state corporation, or would you place it firmly on the screen of a theater that has been living and growing in our city for the last 40 years? ... Yeah, so would the organizers of the 1st Annual Independent Indigenous Film Festival.

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 13

“American Inventor” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Frankly, now that we've already seen all the wacky inventions, I'm no longer interested.

“CSI” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) If Ice-T's weekly turn on “Law & Order: SVU” doesn't provide you with enough rap-acting energy, you could always tune into tonight's “CSI,” which features an appearance by Method Man.

“Commander in Chief” (KOAT-7 9 p.m.) Geena Davis finally returns as the president of the United States. ... Geez, her vacations are almost as long as the real president's.
