Yasuzo Masumura's postwar classic Giants & Toys screens free tonight at the Co-Prosperity Sphere (3219 S. Morgan). The 1958 satire centers on three candy companies in a deadlocked competition to out-advertise each other and the inevitable losses suffered by individual players. In Japanese with English subtitles. Showtime is 8:30 PM.

Click here for the English-subtitled trailer or here to see the whole movie (or at least check out the deranged opening song) on Youku, YouTube's laidback Chinese cousin.
