It can be kind of annoying when someone writes, directs, and stars in a movie. But then again, there are some good examples of it working out awesomely—Zach Braff and Garden State, for example. Here’s another one that we can proudly claim as Minnesota’s own, and not just because the guy’s from Minnesota. Apparently other’s also liked Stephen Gurewitz’s Marvin Seth & Stanley. People like Richard Brody from the New Yorker, who not only complimented the writing and acting, but the filming as well. Kudos, Gurewitz. This triple threat of his tells the story about a father and his two estranged sons, giving off drama with a subtle hint of comedy, or as Brody puts it, a “lifetime of emotion in an offhanded remark.” See the film tonight at Trylon Microcinema and experience a little cinematic Minnesota pride. 7 p.m. $8. —AA
