I just want to see it.

I wonder if they changed the title because Knockout would bring up too many associations with the star's real profession.

I don't know, but Haywire is a much more evocative title.

Agreed, & the change is especially welcome in light of some straight to video release coming out recently (starring a wrestler no less) with the title Knockout.

Looks interesting, but I have much more anticipation for Contagion.

Anything cold and meticulously composed (or having to do with space) is immediately compared to Kubrick. Get with the program YLB.

 
That film does look like one of the strongest Cannes entries this year though.

Agreed. Interesting experiments aside, Traffic is his highest achievement in my opinion, so seeing him take on a project with a similar makeup in a speculative universe with that cast excites me a lot.

Oh, right. Sorry purple, I just think that the connection is tenuous at best.

It does look pretty kick-ass though.

Traffic may be his most ambitious project save for Che (still need to see), but holy shit, The Limey is phenomenal. Have you seen that?

Yeah, it's actually the big ensemble "serious drama" Traffic-ness about Contagion that kind of turns me off. Always a bigger fan of his smaller off-the-wall stuff.

I remember seeing it and being disappointed, it was near as good as the BBC series from which it was adapted. Not much of an achievement, considering.

Festival de Cannes - From 11 to 22 may 2011

Clips from Lynne Ramsay's new film, probably the one at Cannes this year I'm most interested in that's not being released in a couple weeks.
