* "The Runner" is a 1985 Iranian film, regarded by as a classic by whoever is out there seeing lots of Iranian films.

* There is intense buzz about Martha Raddatz book The Long Road Home, a book about Iraq culled from this Newsweek correspondents 13 trips to Iraq. It's about to come out and she will read from it and talk about it and all of that at Politics and Prose. Free, 5pm. [P&P]
