Cannes 2022: In this fifth podcast from this year’s Cannes Film Festival, we discuss new films from David Cronenberg and Claire Denis.
David Cronenberg received a lot of attention on Montages this spring, as we recently premiered his masterpiece Crash (1996) in Oslo cinemas (read more about the project here). It’s been a good eight years since the Canadian champion presented a new film (Maps to the Stars, also at Cannes), and with Future Crimes it also comes down to body horrorthe subgenre (for the first time since ExistenZ1999).
Expectations were therefore enormous, despite the film’s obviously modest budget. Were they up to it? Where did Cronenberg direct his least successful film? The panel strongly disagrees. This is also the case when the conversation continues Claire Dennis‘ The stars at noon, with Margaret Qualley. A kind of high humidity erotic thriller, set in Nicaragua and with a woolly political background, that only thrilled a few critics at Cannes, but still won the Grand Jury Prize at the awards ceremony .
On the mics are Karsten Meinich, Lars Ole Kristiansen and Sveinung Wålengen, and the episode contains no spoilers.
