All the same, the Thin Man had a four-week gap to fill before eight weeks of Pedro Almodóvar start in November, and October is just the right time of year for horror. So as a compromise, Toninelo handed off the planning to a friend who knows his way around the special horror of the Japanese. On display tonight, the final night of the series, is Takashi Miikes The Happiness of the Katakuris, a spoof about a family trying to start a bed-and-breakfast and having to deal with the odd coincidence of every guest dying under increasingly bizarre circumstances. Its not really horror, but it will warp your mind, she says. I cant even watch.
But you can. The free screening starts at 8 p.m. at the Ubisububi Room in the basement of the Thin Man, 2015 East 17th Avenue; for more information, call 303-320-7814 or visit www.thinmantavern.com.
