Klown

One tart and tasty Danish!


Comedy

Rod Lott
That The Hangover director Todd Phillips has plans to helm an Americanization of the Danish comedy Klown (or Klovn) comes as neither a surprise nor a shock. I'd only be surprised if the remake can get within arm's length of equaling it.

Owens’ field

Local artist Romy Owens has earned a gig that’s literally high-profile: For the next year, her studio is streetside in the Skirvin Hilton.


Visual Arts

Shelly Hickman
In its storied, 101-year history, the Skirvin Hilton Hotel has accommodated some of the most influential people in the world, but no one until now — other than its legendary ghost, Effie, of course — stays for an entire year.

Dark Shadows

The vampire comedy doesn't suck.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of this summer's biggest bombs, Dark Shadows is only a disappointment if you expect a straight take on the 1960s Gothic soap opera. Then again, the TV series is such the definition of niche-cult that most moviegoers didn't know what to make of it. While I would have preferred to see Tim Burton go horror with the material — more Sleepy Hollow, less Beetlejuice — I still found the quasi-spoof comedy to be a mild delight.

Dan Deacon — America


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Lots of adjectives can be used to describe mad-pop scientist Dan Deacon’s back catalog: zany, fun, disorienting, loud, clashing, dysfunctional and dizzying.

We like this art show for the name alone: Holi-Day of the Dead. We love it because it benefits the art department of the low-income Emerson High School. Starting at 7 p.m. Saturday and running daily through Nov. 23, Holi-Day features works inspired by various big days of the calendar. See ’em at Six One Six Studios, 616 N.W. Fifth.
