Today in Stranger Suggests

posted by on February 1 at 11:23 AM

Team Frizzelle:

Neal Pollack vs. Dan Savage
(Booze, Books, Music) Tonight they come together in an evening of alternative fatherhood starring Neal Pollack, the “greatest living American writer” turned stoner dad, and Dan Savage, the famous snowboarder. Featuring original music by “Awesome” and the MCing/interviewing skillz of Sean Nelson. Oh yeah, and the whole thing’s free. If you have children, get a freakin’ babysitter. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 8 pm, free, 21+.) CHRISTOPHER FRIZZELLE

Team Wagner:

(Film) This is your last chance to see Japanese auteur Kenji Mizoguchi’s most complex and beautiful film—a morality tale about how coveting fame and being susceptible to flattery can totally wreck your life. Mizoguchi doesn’t settle for ordinary routes to ruin: The main character, a potter named Genjuro, is seduced by a sexy lady ghost. The stunning cinematography and exquisitely shivery score will knock you out, too. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 329-2629. 7 and 9 pm, $5—$8.50. Mizoguchi series continues through Feb 27.)

A goatee is just on the chin. That man is sporting a Van Dyck.
