If Rebellion and La Haine — two politically charged films by French filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz — aren't enough to convince you to head to the Egyptian tonight, then perhaps the discussion moderated by Guillermo del Toro will be.
Across town at the Aero, meanwhile, are two music documentaries on Bob Dylan and Lil Wayne, respectively: D.A. Pennebaker's Don't Look Back and Adam Bhala Lough's The Carter. The show is free, but we've yet to confirm whether purple drank will be sold at the concession stand.
Also, it's your last chance to catch Cinefamily's one-week run of Beyond the Black Rainbow, a sci-fi throwback likely to alter your mind all by itself.

If your Saturday night absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be made on somebody's part, Animal House plays the Egyptian at 7:30.
