This weekend, you've got two great films to catch here in Nashville (probably available in most major cities). Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk With Me is a funny, touching, awkward, modest little gem. If you're a fan of Birbiglia, it's a must. If you have no idea who he is, you should still check it out. It's a great story about a young comedian finding his footing in life, even while struggling with a relationship that's become more obligatory than passionate and REM behavior disorder (that's the sleepwalking part). It almost apologizes for its self, but it's a lot of fun.
On the (much) more serious side, Paul Thomas Anderson is back. The Master, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams, is essentially Anderson's take on the foundation of Scientology (which is likely to rankle a few folks in Hollywood). Taking home two major prizes from the Venice Film Festival a couple weeks ago (it was supposed to take a third), The Master is likely to be a big player come awards season.
