Hey, Toronto! ScreenAnarchy is proud to present Dancing With The Devil
an extensive retrospective of Spanish maverick Alex de la Iglesia
unspooling at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Things continue this week with a February 8th screening of his The Oxford Murders
and we want to give you tickets!
De la Iglesia's second foray into English-language filmmaking stars
Elijah Wood as Martin, an American student at Oxford who becomes
involved in a string of mysterious murders that seem to involve his
academic idol, legendary mathematician Arthur Seldom (John Hurt). When
Martin discovers that the crimes seem to be planned according to
mathematical sequences, he races to stop the killer's fatal, logical
conclusion -- but as the sardonic Seldom insists, even mathematics cannot
always give us the answers we seek. Adapted from the novel by Argentine
mathematician and writer Guillermo Martínez, The Oxford Murders
is de la Iglesia's most marked departure from his signature style: a
classy, elegantly constructed thriller that opts to play things straight
rather than indulging the director's taste for gruesome black comedy.
