Elsewhere around town: Werner Herzog's Stroszek is at the Fifth Avenue (and his amazing Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is still at the Laurelhurst); Reel Music 27 continues at the Northwest Film Center; Brutal Beauty plays again at the Hollywood; and Legion opens wide but wasn't screened for critics (though goddamn, what a trailer!).
