Fueled by anger, desire, luck and, ultimately, hubris, one of modern Hollywood's most infamous cautionary tales belongs to bartender-turned-filmmaker Troy Duffy. So thoroughly did the egotistical head-case Duffy piss off every major player and power broker he courted — including Miramax don Harvey Weinstein — that his film The Boondock Saints
, about two vigilante Boston Irish brothers, was released in only five American theaters for one week. Despite industry stigma and poor critical reception, however, the film has since acquired a devoted cult following on DVD. At 7:30 p.m., Fathom Events presents The Boondock Saints in a 10th-anniversary event
, including a behind-the-scenes retrospective. Six metro theaters — including Cinemark's Palace (526 Nichols Road), AMC Studio 30 (12075 South Strang Line Road in Olathe), and AMC Town Center 20 (11701 Nall in Leawood) — have booked the event.
