Maps To The Stars
David Cronenberg is back, and this time he's taking on his most terrifying, mind-altering subject yet: Hollywood families. Yep, the filmmaker who has spent a career shaking us up with various types of body horror, is continuing his exploration into the psyche, following up the Freudian "A Dangerous Method," and the chatty "Cosmopolis" with "Maps To The Stars."

Maps To The Stars
Next week, the Cannes Film Festival will unveil their slate for 2014, and one movie you can put good money on being there is David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars." The director continues his run of psychological dramas/thrillers with another change in direction, one that moves away from the more traditional (for Cronenberg) "A Dangerous Method" and the contained "Cosmopolis," while reuniting him with his new muse, Robert Pattinson.

Only Lovers Left Alive
From the very first opening titles, written in a Germanic font that immediately conjures everything from “Triumph of the Will” to images of big-busted ladies screaming in campy close-up in 1970s cheapie horrors (it may be the only time in Cannes that a film got a big laugh for a typeface) it’s perfectly clear that the Jim Jarmusch in whose company we’re about to spend a couple of hours is not the wilfully obscure surrealist of “The Limits of Control,” nor the considered, melancholic philosopher behind “Dead Man,” nor even the oddball ragtag troubadour of “Down By Law." In fact, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” Jarmusch’s take on the vampire myth starring recent muse Tilda Swinton and Tom “fast becoming everyone’s favorite actor” Hiddleston, finds the maverick filmmaker on playful, referential and mischievous form with hugely enjoyable, if not exactly weighty or important, results.

Only Lovers Left Alive
Iconoclastic filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has been living outside of the mainstream for his entire career, so it’s perhaps only fitting that for his 11th feature-length film, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” the writer/director turns his attentions to the outsiders that live in shadows.

The Double
"It was the idea of somebody so invisible & lowly that their double could appear and no one would notice; that was funny," director Richard Ayoade said during a recent Q&A about this forthcoming "The Double." And indeed, the film's pleasures come from indulging in the absurdness of the scenario of a doppelganger emerging, consuming the life of his opposite, and no one being any the wiser except for the double.

Only Lovers Left Alive
"I start every movie thinking how heavy and purposeful it is. But as we film they just get funnier," director Jim Jarmusch told Time Out London. "In the editing room I ended up saying to myself, hey, it’s really just a comedy, Jim. I don’t seem to be able to remove that inclination to humour if I try." And thank God for that. While his latest "Only Lovers Left Alive" is a literate tale of vampire love spanning the centuries between a brooding Adam and his understanding Eve, it's also funny. Really, really funny.

The Double, Eisenberg
While on the surface, "Enemy" and "The Double" might seem like similar films, with both featuring stories about doppelgängers, but really they couldn't be more different. Where Jake Gyllenhaal's film is an existential, psychosexual thriller, Jesse Eisenberg's movie is a steampunk, fantastical delight. And better yet, both are worth tracking down.

The Double
After a series of playful teasers that focused on atmosphere or tone, or told stories about snakes, a new traditional trailer has arrived for Richard Ayoade's "The Double." Well, about as traditional as a movie like this can get, which is another way of saying, this is truly something special.
