One of the most memorable films of the last 25 years, Delicatessen (the directorial debut of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro) gave audiences a taste of a crazy stylized French alternaworld. Part in-depth character study and part post-apocalyptic nutrition lesson for the squeamish, Delicatessen is one of those movies that is too visually stimulating to be confined to video. If you didn’t get to see it on the big screen back in the day, now’s your special chance, as it makes an appearance as part of the Inwood Theatre’s Midnight Madness series this weekend. If you schedule a dinner date first, we recommend going vegetarian. Delicatessen screens at midnight on Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane.
