The Chicago Underground Film Festival is already in progress, and we’ve got new reviews of seven features, among them Pig Death Machine, the first work in over a decade by Jon Moritsugu (Scumrock); A Body Without Organs, in which video maker Steve Graves considers his gravely ill father; and Vigilante Vigilante, Max Good’s documentary about urbanites who paint over graffiti. This week also brings week two of the European Union Film Festival and the Chicago opening of Barbara, the latest (and, to my mind, most satisfying) import by German suspense filmmaker Christian Petzold (Yella, Jerichow).
