"Cannes: Screen Jury Grid gets new joint leader"

By Moira Sullivan  for Filmfestivals.com Screen rules:  After days of domination by "Carol" among selected critics Hou Hsiao Hsien's "The Assassin " moves a few points ahead of Todd Haynes and surpasses the water mark that has been consistent for days.  "The Assassin" is very much the top contender for the Palme d'Or for this year's Cannes, according to film critics, due to an exceptional mis en scène - costume, makeup, lig...

The Power of the Badge

    During the festival here in Cannes, there is a whole other world outside of the screenings. However, this world is only accessible to those with a badge.
