It's kind of surprising that a Takashi Miike film hasn't made it into the lineup of Uncomfortable Brunch yet, but they've sure picked a doozy to start with. Visitor Q's plot, such as it is, revolves around a Japanese family – dad, mom, and teenage son and daughter – who are visited by the unnamed stranger of the title. While the family's pre-existing history of incest, prostitution and videotape is disturbing enough, the visitor inspires a new level of depravity that we can't accurately describe. Suffice to say that it involves breast milk and someone getting their dick stuck in a corpse. Miike often uses styles that replicate documentaries or home movies, which serves to heighten the unease that watching this family go about their business causes. If you've ever heard the stereotype of the Japanese being into some weird sex stuff, this brunch will not divest you of that impression.

Noon Sunday, Aug. 7 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | uncomfortablebrunch.com | $10-$12
