DRIVE-ing AT CANNES, with Ryan Gosling

user
This was a very endearing press conference, especially in light of Lars Von Trier’s press conference two days prior for MELANCHOLY (2011) that still had everyone’s head spinning in Cannes. Von Trier’s comments on his Nazi sympathies as well as his protested desire to return to Denmark and focus only on soft and hardcore porn had everyone at Cannes thinking twice about Danish cinema and its praiseworthy art-house directors. Nicolas Winding Refn is a former student of Von Trier...

End of Cannes Film Festival 2011

user
Now that the Cannes Film Festival has come to the end of its 12 day run, we can say that 2011 was full of change and excitement! Lots of fun, but definitely lots of work and preparation as well! The Closing Ceremony dished out all the glamour that we have come to expect from the Cannes Film festival, and DeNiro was more than willing to play the part as this year’s Jury President, distributing the coveted trophies to the winning directors and stars of the evening. Despit...

user
Ridiculous and objectionable . . . L’Apollonide: The House of Tolerance   During a May 17th screening of “House of Tolerance,” many found the film too difficult to watch and stormed out of the theater in disgust. It’s certainly not a pleasant viewing experience. The film tells the story of a Paris brothel living it’s last days at the turn of the 20th century and features many disturbing and graphic images. As a first time Cannes Film Festival attendee, I had be...

Woody Allen: Still On Top

Consider this proposition…..you are an aging film director whose last hit film occurred when Ronald Reagan was President; you were caught with your pants down in a sexual scandal with a stepdaughter 35 years your junior; you have burned countless professional bridges with a reputation for being demanding, exhausting and off-putting. And yet…..you are still at the top of your game. Not many film directors (or lesser mortals) could suffer the sling and arrows of all these misfortunes. But Woo...

Midnight in Paris (11pm in Cannes to be exact) Review

user
One of the most anticipated films in this year's Cannes Film Festival is Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris. One of the reasons for this great anticipation is that this film is the opening film for the festival. Since the premier screening of the movie was practically impossible to obtain tickets for, I managed to get tickets for the second screening at 11pm. Even though the screening was quite late, there were still thousands of people showed up to see the film. The theatre was almost completely...
