Wolf is the outrageously talented, outlandishly dressed polysexual polymath who specialises in fusing the classical and the hi-tech. The fact that this, his fourth album, features both Tilda Swinton and Alec Empire speaks volumes. Tracks such as the soaring, sweeping "Oblivion" meld scratched-CD glitches with musketeer flourishes, as a backdrop for Wolf's mannered yet emotional voice. Exceptions are the straightforwardly dancefloor-friendly single "Vulture" and the rave-metal of "Battle".

Following his 2002 home-invasion thriller Panic Room, he dropped out of skateboard film Lords of Dogtown and Tom Cruise vehicle Mission: Impossible III.

Already known for his Kubrick-like fastidiousness, Fincher seemed afraid to commit to anything less than the perfect project.

When Tilda Swinton announced plans for a film festival in her home town of Nairn in north-east Scotland, she said she wanted it to be the antithesis of the glitz and glamour of Cannes. As it opened yesterday, the Highland weather was doing its bit to help. "I did a rain dance last night and it seems to have worked. What better place to be on a rainy August afternoon than in a cinema?" she said.
