Dunno where to post this but fucking hell the line-up for Cannes looks awesome. New films by Jia Zhangke, Hirokazu Koreeda, Claire Denis, Asghar Farhadi, Coen bros, Steven Soderbergh, Roman Polanski, Nicholas Winding Refn, Johnnie To, Alexander Payne, Sofia Coppola and yesss even James fucking Franco. Can't wait to see all of these.


Which ones are you most/least psyched about and stuff?

Yeah, I guess we'll have to wait and see. I hope most of these make it to the Ghent Film Festival, but it will end up being only two or three or so.

Anyway, Only God Forgives just came out here so I'll go check that out. Hearing incredibly mixed reviews so I wonder what I'll make of it myself.

Only God Forgives has 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Apparently it was booed at Cannes. I guess that means I'll like it.

So did Under Satan's Sun. Watch the clip here



"Si vous ne m'aimez pas, je peux vous dire que je ne vous aime non plus"
Which roughly translates as: If you don't like me, I can tell you now that I don't like you either."

it didn't get a 17% on RT though.

are the directors at the same screenings for their movies as the press? that would pretty fucking douchy to boo. i imagine it would also by a self-esteem crusher.

whoa off the radar winner. I don't know too much about that film/director, but his Black Venus prior to this one looks very cool



Nice to know that Koreeda won the jury prize. Probably expected since like Spielberg, they both go for the heart. And Jia for screenplay is interesting to me. Farhadi will indefinitely make a career out of collecting acting awards, dude's got the actor's director touch coming from the theatre and all.

Yeah so I just watched this film and "cool" is not the word I'd choose to describe it at all. It is an incredibly intense and demanding film that shows your for two hours and forty minutes the exploitation and degradation of an South African woman put on display in Europe as "The Hottentot Venus", both for entertainment and for "science". This is brutal and honest cinema that deals with history in an incredibly accurate manner, but you really have to be able to stomach all this, because all the events portrayed in the film (masterfully acted by Venus and especially her guardian) are nothing less than detestable and deplorable.
