From Wakanda Forever to Don’t Worry Darling: the best films to see in autumn 2022 | Film

That film’s director, George Miller, dubbed him “the Anti-Mad Max,” the polar opposite of his futuristic gonzo action classics. Instead it is an ironic fantasy, a meditation on stories and myths. Tilda Swinton plays a professor of narratology who is in Turkey for a conference. She opens a glass bottle in her hotel and a genie comes out: Idris Elba, who is happy to fulfill one or the other wish.

Michael Flatley fans and masochists worldwide are excitedly talking about making a special pilgrimage to Dublin for the premiere of a film that has become legendary – produced, directed, written and starring Riverdance Hoofer Flatley as a super cool secret agent. This action thriller technically premiered at the 2018 Raindance film festival in London, but scathing journalists were barred by Flatley, unhappy by people using the phrase “vanity project,” and his mythic reputation grew. The trailer showed us something startlingly wooden and strange.

The runaway success of Rian Johnson’s Knives Out and the Agatha Christie revivals Death on the Nile and Murder on the Orient Express proved there was still a market for the classic, tongue-in-cheek, all-star crime thriller of time. Britcom writer Mark Chappell wrote this mystery, set in 1950s London theater land, about the murder of one of the crew members working on a mousetrap-type production. Saoirse Ronan plays Constable Stalker and Sam Rockwell is Inspector Stoppard (perhaps named after the author of The Real Inspector Hound).

Claire Denis brings together three heavyweights of French cinema for an intense love triangle. Set in Paris, Juliette Binoche plays the host of a sophisticated radio talk show living with a former sports star who has retired due to injury, played by the smoldering wrinkled Vincent Lindon. One day Binoche sees her old lover whom she left for Lindon on the street; this is Gregoire Colin. The meeting of all three should be explosive.

David Cronenberg’s new film (not a remake of, and not to be confused with, his 1970 film of the same name) is a Ballardian-style body horror atrocity exhibition that he gave us in Crash. In a bizarre future world, evolution and medicine have grown bodies with many new organs. Viggo Mortensen plays a performance artist whose girlfriend Léa Seydoux removes his extra organs and tattoos them in front of a live audience – to the fascination of a government inspector played by Kristen Stewart. Fuh-reaky.

A glorious shapeshifting epiphany/freakout of a documentary about David Bowie.
