Meet a Man Who Stared at Goats

Retired colonel and intel expert John B. Alexander will be on hand tonight at the Cleveland Cinematheque, following a special screening of The Men Who Stare at Goats, the 2009 satire based on the government's real-life attempts to harness psychic powers in the war against Iraq. Colonel Alexander was one of the military men upon whom the movie was based; today, he is a leading advocate for the development of non-lethal weapons, as well as a student of mysticism, ufo-logy, and near-death experiences. The Cleveland Council on World Affairs is sponsoring Alexander's appearance, which includes plenty of time for a post-flick meeting of the minds. It all begins at 7 p.m. at the Cleveland Cinematheque, 11141 East Blvd.; reserve your $12 ticket at ccwa.org. For more information, concentrate real hard on cia.edu./cinematheque. — Cicora
