FILM:ACOUSTIC: PATTERSON HOOD

MONDAY, APRIL 13, DURHAM

CAROLINA THEATRE—Patterson Hood likes to pull his songs from the headlines, preferably lurid ones, so his pairing with the toxically satiric 1976 film Network in the Film:Acoustic series, where musicians show and discuss movies that inspired them, makes perfect sense. It's also among Hood's five favorite films. "I first saw Network when I was 12 when it was in the theaters," he told me in an email, "and I have seen it over 20 times since. It just resonated with me. I love black comedy (the darker the better, and it doesn't get much darker than this). I love the screenwriting and the acting and understated direction ([Sidney] Lumet is one of my faves, too). I love how serious it is, yet so hilarious. I love how it predicted the future, as it points to reality TV, the effects of corporate takeover culture and Fox News. It is such a film of its time (the era I came of age in) and yet so timeless and such a film of today's culture and pop culture." 7 p.m., $15, 309 W. Morgan St., Durham, 919-560-3030, www.carolinatheatre.org.David Klein
