BRAD OSWALD Ñ TV

From a Jack to a Phil: Pacino takes a liking to TV

Al Pacino must have enjoyed his small-screen experience as star of the HBO movie You Don't Know Jack -- starring in the Dr. Kevorkian biopic did earn him a best-actor Emmy, after all -- because he's back on the tube this week, in another controversial and probably award-worthy role: Pacino and a very frightening wig will tackle the title role in the HBO drama Phil Spector (which airs Sunday, March 24; check listings for times).

Catch Cabin Fever 2

Drag your winter-weary bones to the Windsor Hotel on Saturday, March 23, and help the Harvest Moon Festival build three new cabins to house visitors to the annual, eco-friendly event in the hamlet of Clearwater. The fundraiser lineup includes pop-rock power duo Cannon Bros. (right), prog-rock/funk/jazz ensemble Mariachi Ghost and DJ Mama Cutsworth. Tickets are $10 in advance at Organic Planet or Mondragon, or $15 at the door.

RANDALL KING Ñ MOVIES

Dreaming on film

L.A. radio host Michael Silverblatt of the KCRW show Bookworm is promising to discuss "film, reading, dreams and art" in his interview with Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin, right, on Friday, March 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Free Press News Café. It's the "dreams" part that especially intrigues. Does Guy Maddin dream in colour? Are his dreams like his movies? Or are his dreams like Michael Bay movies? Find out for yourself. The event is free, but seating is limited.

MORLEY WALKER / BOOKS

A one-syllable title is probably a good idea

She may not be Pippa Middleton, but the fetching British model and TV host Alexa Chung has a following on both sides of the Atlantic. The New York Times has dubbed her "the Kate Moss of her generation." Now Penguin Books is cashing in on Chung's celebrity by releasing her first book, It, a combination of her writing, drawings and photographs. Due in November, Penguin announced this week, the book will cover "how to decide what to wear, style influences, personal pictures and style tips."

KEVIN PROKOSH / THEATRE

Bon Bashir

David Adams is superb in the unshowy title role of the one-man drama Bashir Lazhar in its second and final week at the Rachel Browne Theatre. The gentle, perceptive drama by Quebec playwright Evelyne de la Chenelière, closing the Theatre Projects Manitoba season, is given a moving portrayal of a refugee with a painful past by the veteran Vancouver actor. He proves that simplicity and sincerity can produce a powerful impact.
