See the Outdoors story about Fly Fishing Guide Hank Patterson, a spoof that's getting raves for fly fishing comedy videos.
All proceeds from both Sandpoint shows go to the Panhandle Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Pend Oreille Water Festival (classroom and field trip event for all 5th graders in Bonner County where they are taught about fisheries and water quality!).
“A Dangerous Method” is something of a change of pace for actor Viggo Mortensen (pictured, in AP file photo) and director David Cronenberg. In their previous collaborations, the two created a pair of organized crime stories noted for their moral complexity and explosive kinetic energy. However, their third film, which explores the relationships between Sigmund Feud, Carl Jung and Sabina Spielrein that gave birth to psychoanalysis, draws the tension back into the power of the human intellect. Residents have a chance to check the film out for themselves Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Panida Theater, complete with an introduction and a Q&A session hosted by Mortensen himself. The screening will benefit both the Panida Theater and KRFY Community Radio. Tickets cost $12 and are available at Pedro's, Pack River Potions, Eichardt's Pub and at the box office on the evening of the showing, if any remain. Doors open at 6:30 p.m./Cameron Rasmusson, Bonner Daily Bee. More here.
Question: Is it worth a trip to Sandpoint and $12 to you to sit in on a Q-and-A with Viggo Mortensen re: his latest movie?
