It seems that what goes on behind closed doors continues to fascinate director Im Sang-Soo. Two years after remaking the South Korean classic "The Housemaid," the director returned to the Cannes Film Festival with "The Taste Of Money," a potent blend of sex, love, deceit and much, much more. And with the movie now in limited release, we have an exclusive clip to show you the wicked world this film takes place in.

Park City may be aflutter with cinematic thrills, but it's still January in the rest of the country. Which means we have another weekend of lackluster studio releases banking on the bevy of visuals distracting you from the fact that they were written by a robot without feelings. On the other hand, the schedule is punctuated by a few vibrant indies and flicks from overseas. Emphasis on the few, but still: beggars, and all that jazz. So, fellow panhandlers -- what's getting your hard earned dollar bills this weekend? Tell us in the comments below!

Thanks to the recession and the growing divide between the very rich and the extremely poor, along with the volcanic if somewhat ineffectual Occupy movement, the inner lives of those in power have become even more fascinating and dastardly. In "The Taste of Money," the newest film from largely unsung South Korean director Im Sang-soo, we get a private peek behind the scenes at a ruling class family in all its icky, decadent, morally unwell glory. And while "The Taste of Money" might have a lot on its mind, it's still a melodrama – a gloriously decadent, gorgeously photographed melodrama – a movie where people burst into tears and act very badly towards each other, all while wearing really fabulous clothes.

Cinephiles have unwrapped the presents put under the Cannes Film Festival Christmas tree this morning, with organizers unveiling their impressive lineup for the 2012 festivities. And this is the gift that will keep on giving. Over the next four weeks in the lead up to the fest, an array of stills and footage will be released for the films headed to the south of France, and things are off to a good start already. The brand new trailer for David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" arrived a few hours before it was officially confirmed for Cannes, and now a couple of fresh images for some In Competition movies are out of the gate.
