"Firecracker" About to Go Off

If you're unable to attend the Sept. 22 and 23 screenings at the San Diego Film Festival, you'll be pleased to know that Steve Balderson's new film, "Firecracker," is headed for a limited theatrical release at last.

The film, which stars fringe musical icon Mike Patton and horror legend Karen Black in dual roles, has been called "Hitchcockian" by Roger Ebert and "no less than a masterpiece" by Film Threat, according to the film's Web site. The theatrical run will kick off in Boston on Oct. 11 and finish up in Seattle on Dec. 8. You'll have to contact the individual theaters for information on how to get tickets for these one-night-only showings, but you can click here for the complete list of cities and venues.

And if you really need a little something to tide you over until you're finally able to see this thing, you might consider giving Ebert's full review a gander. It's exceedingly thorough.--Pete Mesling
