The Nespresso Bar

While waiting in line for a screening the other day I asked another festival goer what his favorite aspect of working at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival was, and he had a strange response.  “The free coffee!” he said enthusiastically.   This man was of course referring to the Nespresso Bar located inside the heart of the main building at the festival. Here anybody with a badge that allows them access to the main building can receive a free espresso, courtesy of Nespresso....

"The Farewell Party" Enters Laughing

You've got to hand it to Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit. Any filmmakers willing to have a laugh with euthanasia should be lauded for their nerve, and in The Farewell Party, which they jointly wrote and directed, the case is made for the right to jest with dignity. Still, there is much in the film that will gall opponents of mercy killing. The casting of iconic comedians offers a powerful assist in delivering bleak themes, especially for devotees of Israeli entertainment who read the marquee...

The Master Of Song Shines Brightly on 'Late Show With David Letterman'

                                        For those to say he didn't impress would be a lie and to say he didn't surpass all expectations would be a drastic understatement after one watched and listened to maestro Bob Dylan deliver a searing, haunting and beautiful rendition of 'The Night We Called It A Day' on the penultimate episode of 'Late Sh...

"Sicario" Delivers A Gripping Thriller

Anytime you have the prolific Roger Deakins on set and powerful performances on screen, it is hard not to have a good film. Dennis Villeneuve's new masterpiece Sicario is, however, better than good. This action packed gripping crime drama that features Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benecio Del Toro is exceptional across the board and potentially has some oscar nominations coming its way. It is really no wonder why the film got a reportedly seven minute standing ovation at its premiere...

Interviewing the AURO-3D team in Cannes

The 25m² demo theatre built for the circumstance had 20 speakers and 3 bass speakers... Tell me about Auro Technologies?                   Auro Technolog...

Pixar Outdoes Itself With Inside Out Premiere

Pixar Outdoes Itself With Inside Out Premiere On Monday, May 18th, Cannes Film Festival celebrated Animation Day to show off the talents and logistics of all things animation. The premiere movie at the Grand Lumiere Theatre was Inside Out, Disney-Pixar's new film about all of these emotions we have in our head like joy, anger, fear, sadness and disgust. It travels into the mind of a young girl named Riley, and portrays each emotion as their own person. Anger naturally shoots fire out...

Top Movies Thus Far

  by, Cameron Lui   Ive seen 7 movies at the festival and counting, so here's my thoughts on the best ones so far.    1. The Lobster-hands down the best film in the festival thus far. It has a clear agenda that is executed with aggression and creativity. The acting was flawless, the writing beautiful, and it packs one of the biggest punches in cinema to date.    2. The Irrational Man-beautifully depressing film that has the honesty that only Woody Allen...

The Under-appreciated Short Film Genre

  Can you name a single famous short film? If you can, it may take a while to get there. Short films have been and probably will always be unfortunately overshadowed by features but are a nice change of pace in the film industry. Here in Cannes, in the enormous market place lies a shorter queue of only about a dozen, waiting for their chance into the short film corner. Consisting of fifty separate computers and hundreds of titles, it is a quiet pleasant personal theatre to enjoy shorts f...

Surkhaab, Review: Where are the feathers?

Surkhaab, Review: Where are the feathers? First things first: the title. It is an Urdu/Persian word, also part of Hindi, that means the ruddy sheldrake/shelduck bird. Literally translated, ‘surkh’ means red and ‘aab’ means water. There is a river in north-west Asia that is also called surkhaab, which is easy to link to the meaning. The bird has rare type of feathers, and so, someone who has special qualities is said to be possessing 'surkhaab ke par' (surkhaab&...

Cemetery of Splendor-Review

user
  by, Cameron Lui   This movie is basically two hours of soothing ocean sounds. If you are having some insomnia issues I recommend this movie.    Basically, most of the audience walked out of the theater by the third act and the rest were bobbing their heads in and out of a mid-day nap.    I proudly kept my eyes open to soak up the entire movie but for some reason the director decided to go nowhere with a premise that had a lot of potential.    &l...
