Kino Lorber Grabs Guy Maddin's Delightfully Demented 'Forbidden Room'

5 February 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Kino Lorber has acquired all Us rights to Guy Maddin's "The Forbidden Room," planning a Fall theatrical release for the Sundance premiere, which heads to Berlin this week and more fests throughout 2015. Co-directed by Evan Johnson, Maddin's 11th feature-film foray into avant-weirdness stars a top-drawer cast including Mathieu Amalric, Udo Kier, Charlotte Rampling, Geraldine Chaplin, Roy Dupuis, Clara Furey, Louis Negin, Maria de Medeiros, Jacques Nolot, Adèle Haenel, Amira Casar & Elina Löwensohn as a clown car of misfits, thieves and lovers. Inspired in part by American modernist poet John Ashbery and structured like a Russian nesting doll, "Forbidden Room" is the highwire cinematic equivalent to LSD, giddily juggling multiple film stocks and kooky set pieces involving cavemen, wolf-hunters, skeletons, bloodsucking bananas, damsels in distress and the memories of a dead man's mustache. To name a few. The film was produced by Phi Films, Buffalo »

Dreams! Visions! Madness!: Maddin & Johnson’s Extravagant Symphony of Silent Cinema Fantasia

Those familiar with the works of auteur Guy Maddin, sometimes referred to as the Canadian David Lynch, know to expect strange hybrids of silence film techniques mixed with zany weirdness that often reflect delightfully perverse and sometimes queer dynamics mixed in with its dashes of visual inventiveness and extreme narrative playfulness. While he still creates a healthy amount of short film projects and is involved with other installations in-between feature films, including several notable unions with actress Isabella Rossellini, who has starred in The Saddest Music in the World (2003), Keyhole (2011) and as narrator of the brilliant Brand Upon the Brain! (2006), his latest has been in gestation over a period of several years, at one point known as Seances and Spiritismes, and it was uncertain whether this would ever be a theatrical release. Known finally as The Forbidden Room, »

22 January 2015 11:21 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

One of our most anticipated Sundance 2015 titles is Guy Maddin's latest foray into avant-weirdness, a cinematic hybrid project the Canadian auteur's been cooking up since his docu-fantasia "My Winnipeg" bowed in 2007. The director's 11th film, "The Forbidden Room" stars a top-drawer Euro cast including Mathieu Amalric, Udo Kier, Charlotte Rampling, Geraldine Chaplin, Roy Dupuis, Clara Furey, Louis Negin, Maria de Medeiros, Jacques Nolot, Adèle Haenel, Amira Casar & Elina Löwensohn as "a cavalcade of misfits, thieves and lovers, all joined in the joyful delirium of the kaleidoscopic viewing experience," per the press release of this elusive new movie. Made with the help of American poet John Ashbery, who aided in defining modern poetry in the mid-20th century, "Forbidden Room" premieres at Sundance next week before heading to Berlin in February. Below, check out the "living poster" for the film, which apparently »
