DURHAM
MUNICH
Duke Campus—The Duke Screen/Society's "Morality of Power" series launches with what may end up being director Steven Spielberg's most underappreciated work. This important, intelligent drama tracking the aftermath of the massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics is an intriguing character study, poignant political drama and ongoing allegory for contemporary American foreign policy. The screening, which begins at 7 p.m. in Griffith Film Theater, will be followed by a discussion led by Professor Peter Euben and Melanie Mitchell of the Kenan Institute of Ethics.

RALEIGH
THE ROSEBUDS
KingsNight of the Furies—the third full-length from The Rosebuds, one of two local bands Merge Records now claims—has its share of awkward moments: Pieces feel forced and stiff, as if the record's spine comes corrected by the mid-'80s beats and retro-synth oddities that form its chassis. But a few moments here—Ivan Howard's glissandi on "When the Lights Went Dim" or the trans-oceanic refrain of "Silja Line," with Sweden's Shout-Out Louds singing a dream—coutd put this band over the top. Tel Aviv's Monotonix digs deep for Nuggets and blasts their findings with primal volume, while Un Deux Trois makes pop music for kids with cool haircuts in old convertibles. The show starts at 10 p.m. —Grayson Currin
