The recent and unexpected death of filmmaker George Hickenlooper (cousin of Colorado Governor-elect John Hickenlooper) has resonated throughout this year's Starz Denver Film Festival, which is honoring the director with a bonus showing of his final film, Casino Jack. The movie stars Kevin Spacey as Bush-era lobbyist Jack Abrahamoff scheming his way through Washington, willing to do anything to turn a profit, which includes creating his own gambling empire. The ruthlessly self-interested villain finally begins to crumble when he runs into trouble in the world of organized crime. Sun 7 p.m.
