Variety reports which David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method” will premiere during a 68th Venice Film Festival, which starts upon Aug 31. The film, Cronenberg’s initial given 2007′s “Eastern Promises,” stars his visit co-operator Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud, Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung, as well as Keira Knightley as a lady they both want. we can’t decide; do we go with a “Paging Dr. Freud” fun or a “Tell me about your mother” fun here? Decisions, decisions…
According to Variety, a Venice lineup will additionally embody Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” (based upon a Tony Award-winning fool around “God of Carnage”), Aleksandr Sokurov’s “Faust,” Cameron Crowe’s documentary upon Pearl Jam, Jonathan Demme’s doc upon Hurricane Katrina, Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Dogtooth” follow-up “Alps,” Steve McQueen’s “Hunger” follow-up “Shame,” as well as a ultimate from Todd Solondz, “Dark Horse.” It’s a initial I’ve listened of which one, so here’s a tract outline per Wikipedia:
“Abe, a 30-something who lives with his parents, reluctantly functions for his father as well as avidly collects toys. When Abe isn’t personification backgammon with his mother, he’s perplexing to intrigue Miranda, an additional 30-something who has changed behind in with her relatives after a unsuccessful literary/academic career. Out of desperation, Miranda agrees to wed Abe, as well as a dual proceed to devise their hold up together. But only when it looks similar to things have been starting to go right for Abe, all goes horribly wrong.”
Sounds reasonably Solondzian, as does a cast, which includes Selma Blair, Mia Farrow, as well as Christopher Walken.
The last Venice lineup might additionally embody a single of dual arriving drive-in theatre by Steven Soderbergh — possibly his movement thriller “Haywire” or his mildew thriller “Contagion,” both of which sport, ahem, ill casts — as well as a single of dual latest cinema from Steven Spielberg: a play “War Horse” or his initial charcterised film, “The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of a Unicorn,” which only debuted a first teaser trailer progressing this week. My camber tells me to gamble upon a latter film for any director.
By a by, if Soderbergh’s “Haywire” does get comparison which would have 3 drive-in theatre featuring Michael Fassbender during a festival; on top of his aforementioned purpose in “A Dangerous Method,” he’s additionally a star of McQueen’s “Shame.” And, hey, it could be still four; c’mon “X-Men: First Class!”
The 68th Venice jury will be lead by “Black Swan” executive Darren Aronofsky. The rest of a cinema he’ll be judging will be rigourously voiced in July.
