Sundance 2015 review: The Forbidden Room – Guy Maddin imagines a volcano's dream and the memories of a moustache

Good luck tracing a through line between the characters in Maddin’s latest – but despite its acid logic, this is quite a trip

I’ve never taken LSD and wandered around a film archive, but I imagine the experience might be similar to The Forbidden Room. Co-directed by Guy Maddin and his young discovery Evan Johnson, The Forbidden Room feels like the entirety of Maddin’s oeuvre collapsing in on itself for a gorgeous, droll and (at times overly) desultory 128 minutes.

A brief synopsis of the film, which will get more play at museums than multiplexes, is near impossible. But here goes: mixing genres, film stocks and well-worn cinematic tropes, a damsel must be rescued. A Canadian wolf-hunter will challenge the cave-dwellers who hold her, but in between, the film takes lengthy narrative digressions that include the dreams of a sentient erupting volcano, the reminiscences of a dying man’s moustache and absurd instructions from a 1960s-era square on how to take a bath.

The computer-generated cookbook: just the thing for a hungry digital age
IBM’s game show-winning computer Watson turns its hand to helping chefs generate startling taste sensations ‘man alone might never imagine’

Touting such eyebrow-raising combinations as an Indian turmeric paella, a Turkish-Korean anchovy Caesar salad and a Creole shrimp-lamb dumpling, a new contender for hottest cookery writer of 2015 is preparing to elbow aside the likes of Jamie Oliver, Mary Berry and Nigella Lawson: IBM’s supercomputer Watson.

Four years after beating two human champions to win the US game show Jeopardy!, IBM’s cognitive computing system is set to release its first cookbook - with the help of a few human specialists. Out in April from independent American publisher Sourcebooks, Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson uses the supercomputer to generate exotic ingredient combinations from the “trillions” of potential groupings out there, with chefs from the Institute of Culinary Education then designing recipes based on Watson’s suggestions. The book will feature, promises its publisher, “unusual ingredient combinations that man alone might never imagine”.
