S'Nuff film

Slab Cinema (slabcinema.com) will extend its free outdoor screenings into the month of November. Last month, the films were all Halloween-y fright fests, but this month the non-theme seems to be “movies selected randomly from some dude’s DVD rack.” John Wayne’s terrifying performance in Native American slasher flick The Searchers eases the transition 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 6, at HemisFair Park (200 Broadway), but the film is followed non-sequitoriously by thug-life dance party West Side Story, and John Hughes’ dangers-of-truancy docudrama Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Bring your own blankets or lawn chairs, pilgrim, and remember that you can prevent a murdered Comanche from entering the spirit land simply by shooting the eyes out of his skull.

And speaking of things I’m going to talk about in this week’s column, local website upstart vlog4reel.com’s 14-minute film “Ennis Does Southtown” took Best Comedy honors at the fourth-annual Seguin Film Festival. The film features SA-born actor-dancer-singer Jade Esteban Estrada interviewing merchants and innocent walkers-by at First Friday as Ennis P. Degollado — a gay, lactose-intolerant, vegetarian cowboy. Somewhere, a dead American Indian is laughing his eyeless head off.
