Funnyman Harry Shearer gets serious with Katrina documentary 'The Big Uneasy'

And so, after five years of cringing whenever Hurricane Katrina is referred to as "a natural disaster," the multihyphenated entertainer (actor-humorist-commentator-musician-broadcaster-pretend rock star) and part-time New Orleanian is adding another hyphen to his job description: documentarian.

The result? "The Big Uneasy, " landing tonight (Aug. 30) in 200-plus theaters nationwide. It's an unconventional release, to say the least -- opening on a Monday and, in most cases, playing for one night only -- but one timed to coincide with the storm's fifth anniversary.
The gist: Eh, you might want to keep that ax in your attic.
"As the authors of the Berkeley report say, this was not a natural disaster, " Shearer said, calling to discuss the movie recently after a screening in Washington.
