1. Director David Cronenberg
2. Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud

It’s been 13 years since The Last Days of Disco, but it’s finally (almost) here. Damsels In Distress starring Greta Gerwig and Adam Brody will be the closing film at the Venice Film Festival. Good, because we’re tired of quoting Metropolitan-Barcelona-The Last Days of Disco.
