Well whaddaya know, it's time for another edition of The (Mostly) Indie Film Calendar, a weekly sampling of some of the non-multiplex options for the savvy moviegoer over the next seven days. If you know of something cool happening -- revivals, small festivals, workshops, whatevs -- I beseech you to send me a link so I can include it on the calendar. I can be found at Eric.Snider@Weblogsinc.com.

  • Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? hits about 100 theaters today after playing at Sundance and South By Southwest, among other festivals. It's Morgan Spurlock's attempt to summarize the War on Terror, and Cinematical's James Rocchi reviewed it favorably at Sundance.
  • Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is a documentary about how people who believe in evolution are big meanies who don't understand why "Intelligent Design" (i.e., that God made everything) should be taught in science classes, too. Somehow the teacher from Ferris Bueller's Day Off is involved. The people distributing the film have been very careful not to let any critics see it, going so far as to require preview audience to sign nondisclosure agreements. You know it must be a great film when the only way you're allowed to see it is if you promise not to tell anyone about it -- anti-word-of-mouth. I almost don't even want to mention it here, except that it is an indie film and it is opening in several hundred theaters today. So there you go.
