A History Of Violence – Cannes 2005

  Somehow you have to feel uncomfortable as an American visitor to the Cannes Film Festival, since a last for the inadequacies of their own society are rubbed under their noses. Two posts yesterday to contribute to the “America bashing”, a competitive category that Michael Moore last year with his documentary, and Golden Palm winner Fahrenheit 9 / 11 and also introduced to a head.

Che – Cannes 2008

  Steven Soderbergh Che this year was probably the most eagerly anticipated contest with the contribution of the Cannes Festival. But after the screening of more than four-hour film there was bewilderment and disappointment among the visitors. Had they seen now a two-part film, or even two completely separate movies? The presented version was just a rough cut, or actually the finished work, which will come in this form in the cinema?

Bashing – Cannes 2005

  Yesterday’s Competition at Cannes was dominated by Woody Allen’s new film Match Point, the only reason is not one of the hottest favorites for the Palme d’Or because he is running out of competition. A little of this gloss, the film threatens to overlap of competition.

“Bashing” is a slang term for the public abuse and marginalization of certain groups or individuals, and in fact is also in Masahiro Kobayashi’s competition entry for the systematic finish of a person. In this case it is the girl Yuko

  If one of the main character has a film in competition at Cannes are already given the thoughtful artist name “The Rock”, suggesting that much and suspect something. The muscle-bound giant Dwayne Johnson, a former professional wrestler, Southland Tales begins with his film career, and in the opinion of many critics, they should go with this strip is already coming to an end.
