Pesce shares his ideas on adapting the book, evoking a mood in a minimalistic story and his influences both film and musically to Italian giallo movies. […]
I went and saw the new Alice Through The Looking Glass film yesterday. It wasn’t a film I had purposely wanted to see nor had I seen the previous film. But it was the girlfriends turn to pick and she like the first film and had been anticipating the sequel. I went in with no […]
Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak is a haunted house movie where the ghosts are an adjunct to the horror that took place in the film’s main setting. The house is situated in an England that exists only in the lurid colors (or lack thereof) of the movies. That country breathes the air of a world […]

As handsome as you’d expect.
It nothing else, it looks like it’ll be gorgeous.
This looks delightful, and like a much more fun take on the doppelganger theme than, say, Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy.
Richard Aoyade's adaptation of The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky seems to also be deriving a lot from Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

Slow and lyrical and weird and beautiful, Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton make a striking pair […]
And Jesse Eisenberg And Mia Wasikowska.
The bad news: Mia Wasikowska is out of Todd Haynes' Carol. The good news: Rooney Mara is in.
Chan Wook Park plays this scene for sheer intensity.
