7:30 p.m. — "A Tribute to Anthony Hopkins": The Welsh-born actor, best known for his Oscar-winning portrayal of Chianti-swilling killer Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs," comes to SIFF to receive a lifetime achievement award. The evening will include a collection of clips from Hopkins' career, an onstage interview and a screening of one of his finest performances: his subtle, soulful work as a perfectly controlled butler in the 1993 Merchant/Ivory drama "The Remains of the Day." Advance tickets for this event are sold out, but a few last-minute rush tickets may be available; get in line early.

9:30 p.m. — "Crazy Love": There's just no explaining some couples. Take the marriage of Linda Riss and Burt Pugach. He stalked her for years, hired thugs to throw lye in her face (and blind her) — and still got her to say "yes" when he proposed a wedding. Dan Kloves' provocative documentary covers their relationship from 1957 (when they met) to 1974 (when they married) to the present. Driven by interviews with the couple and their friends, it's unavoidably a talking-heads film, but home movies help to fill out their story, and so do their appearances on several famous talk shows. The lively soundtrack includes, inevitably, "You've Really Got a Hold on Me," with its eerie refrain, "I don't like you, but I love you." 92 minutes. (John Hartl)
5 p.m. — "Aqua"
7 p.m. — "In the Shadow of the Moon": An audience prizewinner at this year's Sundance Film Festival, David Sington's first-rate documentary concentrates on stories told by the astronauts who walked on the moon between 1969 and 1972. The wide-ranging interviews have plenty of heart and humor, as well as a touch of spirituality. But the film's most overwhelming emotion is nostalgia for a time when an unpopular war had not dampened worldwide enthusiasm for American courage and ingenuity. 100 minutes. (J.H.)
9:45 p.m. — "Strike"
