Crispin Glover Presents (need I say more!?)

Also from The Oregonian--

Man if I wasn't 3000 miles away I would so be there. Is there any American actor today any more mysterious, odd-mannered (ok, just weird) and iconoclastic than Glover? (and no not even Walken tops this guy).

Crispin Hellion Glover is familiar among indie-film fans for his creepy characters in "River's Edge," "Bartleby" and "Willard" (the one about the guy with the rats). Glover is also arguably the most infamous guest in the history of David Letterman's talk show. In the past few years Glover has also made films -- make-you-squirm-in-your-seat-type films. It's a bit difficult to accurately describe these movies -- 2005's "What Is It?" and the new "It Is Fine, Everything Is Fine!" -- but what's great about having Glover in person to present them is that in the Q&A afterward you can ask him, "Hey, what was that?" Chances are he will do his best to give a serious, thoughtful answer.

7 p.m. Friday-Monday at Clinton Street Theater; "It Is Fine, Everything Is Fine!" screens Friday and Sunday; "What Is It?" screens Saturday and Monday; $18 advance tickets available at theater.
