It’s Not You; It’s Me

Who gave Hugh Grant an acting career anyway?

Staying home and brooding on Valentine’s Day usually backfires, often in the form of ice cream overdoses and accidentally watching an abundance of Hugh Grant films. An antidote: It’s Not You; It’s Me, a screening of short films at Block 7 Wine Company, hosted by Aurora Picture Show, all of which deal with the shitty side of love. There’s 25 Random Things I Did During My Big Fat Lesbian Depression, Chris Russo’s hilarious yet completely relatable account of the measures one woman took to get over a broken heart; Mitchell Rose’s Deere John, in which a dancing leading man performs an affectionate duet with a massive yellow piece of construction equipment; and Don Hertzfeldt’s Ah, L’Amour, a jaunty — if violent — cartoon in which a poor stick figure is maimed, shot and decapitated in his quest to find a woman. No happily-ever-afters here — but then again, no aging, foppish Brits, either. 5 p.m. Sunday. Block 7 Wine Company, 720 Shepherd. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit Free to $7.
