    South Korean Auteur Kim Ki-duk’s “One On One” To Open Venice Fest’s Venice Days Section.

    One On One” is about the brutal rape and murder of a schoolgirl. This crime’s seven suspects are terrorized by seven members of a sect known as The Shadows.”

    The idiosyncratic director won the Venice Film Festival’s Golden Lion in 2012 with his brutal but moving mother-son drama “Pieta.” He was back on the Lido out-of-competition in 2013 with his “Moebius, about a man who atones for his sexual misdeeds by cutting off his genitals.

    Kind of interesting Desplat was chosen to become the first composer to lead a jury, but he wouldn’t be my choice.  He has done a lot of work, not sure any can be considered truly great.

    I hope we see Ramin Bahrani’s latest film 99 Homes there. I love Laura Dern, it seems like a character Michael Shannon can sink some real teeth into and I’ll be grateful to see Andrew Garfield continue utilizing his talents in things besides Spider-Man.

    So now it’s been confirmed that Birdman (opening film) and 99 Homes (leaked by producer on instagram) will be at the festival, and I imagine Serena will be screened out of competition. When is the full list released?
