Event: My Friend Dahmer, Open-captioned screening
Where: Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St, Chicago
Time: 6:00 PM
Benefits and Attractions: "I'm just like anybody else." This sleeper hit, which could be titled "Banality of Evil, Jr.," has captivated millennials with its chillingly relatable depiction of the gawky Ohio teenager who would soon grow up to be one of the most notorious serial killers, specializing in dismemberment, necrophilia, and cannibalism. During his high school years, young Jeffrey deals with bullies, battling parents, and emerging homosexuality, while pursuing his hobby of dissolving small dead animals in acid ("I like bones"). At school, he reigns as the class weirdo, a distinction that he cultivates by staging convulsive fits. He is last seen in his graduation-present red Volkswagen, picking up a male hitchhiker... Former Disney Channel star Lynch (TEEN BEACH MOVIE) goes way against type to create an unforgettably creepy yet disturbingly ordinary character. Based on the graphic novel by Derf Backderf. DCP digital widescreen. (MR)

Event: Phantom Thread, Open-captioned screening
Where: Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St, Chicago
Time: 6:00 PM
Benefits and Attractions: Nominated for six Oscars, winner for Costume Design, and alleged to be star Daniel Day-Lewis's swansong on the big screen, this saga of Reynolds Jeremiah Woodcock, a self-possessed 1950s London fashion designer to the elite, blends high drama with the lushly refined spectacle of haute couture. The only long-term relationship maintained by stiffly elegant couturier (Day-Lewis) is with his jealous gatekeeper of a sister (Manville), until the day he brings home Alma (Krieps, of GUTLAND), a shy waitress from a seaside hotel. Director Anderson (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, THE MASTER) makes Woodcock's meticulous fanaticism a template for the film's intricately calculated emotion and the geography of the perverse implied triangle consisting of Woodcock, sister, and lover, as Alma unexpectedly grows into her role as adversary and equal. DCP digital. (BS)

Event: The Death of Stalin, Open-captioned screening
Where: Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St, Chicago
Time: 5:30 PM
Benefits and Attractions: Having proven himself the master of contemporary political satire with his last feature IN THE LOOP and his critically beloved TV series "The Thick of It" and "Veep," Armando Iannucci sets his sights on Russian history and the power vacuum left by the death of one of the twentieth century's greatest tyrants. When Joseph Stalin is felled by a stroke after decades of terrorizing his political subordinates and the USSR at large, a struggle for who will take his place begins at the highest level of the Soviet regime, pitting the head of the secret police Lavrenty Beria (played with uncompromising viciousness by Simon Russell Beale) against the politically ambitious Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi). Without shying away from any nasty particularities like state-sanctioned murder, Iannucci plays this bloody passage of Russian history as farce, ensuring that every one of the film's plentiful laughs will stick in your throat. DCP digital. (CW)
