I haven't heard of these films (indeed, I don't think I've heard of any of the films listed, with the exception of THE BLING RING) but I'm definitely up for these two. I'd cite Jia and Koreeda as two of the best living directors.

Can't wait for THE BLING RING. As for Alexander Payne's NEBRASKA, I know nothing about it, but with that director and that title all I can say is: I'm in!

Possibly a bit of a tenuous connection, but Scarecrow, the 1973 Cannes Palme d’or winner, has just been re-released to cinemas in the UK.

Somehow it escaped my attention previously. Anyone here seen it?

Absolutely. The films from those two, plus VENUS IN FURS, are my three Cannes must-sees.

I wasn't all that impressed by CARNAGE but I suppose that has no bearing on VENUS IN FUR (except that it's another adaptation of a play with a very small cast).

CARNAGE is the Diet Coke of Polanski films.

We'll see about VENUS IN FUR, which, from the plot summary, seems to have some echoes of BITTER MOON, though presumably with a greater comedic touch, since I've heard it described as a dark comedy. But of the new Polanski films, I'm much more interested in the upcoming D, which, as far as I'm aware, begins production later this year.

Saw the trailer for BEYOND THE CANDELABRA. Not a fan of the title (a bit matter-of-fact, not to mention clunky - and if we must go in this direction wouldn't BEHIND THE CANDELABRA be better?) but Michael Douglas' performance as Liberace would seem to be something to behold.

Unfortunately it's directed by Steven Soderbergh.

I thought the title *was* BEHIND THE CANDELABRA?

Yeah.

Michael Douglas is usually good value, though. Like Mel Gibson, he's one of those actors who somehow tends to give a massive shot in the arm to everything he's in (but even he couldn't add much to HAYWIRE). Matt Damon is normally worth a squirt as well. Anyhoo, the trailer's sold me.

Ever seen A PERFECT MURDER? No one could've saved that POS.

Douglas has something few actors working today have: star-grade charisma. I'll see BEHIND THE CANDELABRA just for him.

Haven't seen A PERFECT MURDER. I'm not saying that Douglas walks on water, mind, but I do think he normally brings a lot of acting ability, charisma and screen presence to the table.

I remember two years ago he said he got bored of directing movies and was going to quit. laugh Guess he just needs to kill time somehow.

Actually, Soderbergh *is* retiring. BEHIND THE CANDELABRA is his last film.

Was that always the plan? I swore MAGIC MIKE was supposed to be it for him.

It was essentially the plan, yeah. Back when those first reports of his retirement cropped up, they stated he'd do MAGIC MIKE and BEHIND THE CANDELABRA (which he had been working on for quite some time) prior to retiring.

Really? He's been going back and forth with this since '10.

It's official now. He's given a few interviews on the subject.
