Cannes Cat Calls: Booing As A Critical Sport

Code Of Confusion: The Critics Versus The Public

Well, if one needed further proof of how far apart most film critics are from the cinematic tastes of the general public, you need look no further than THE DA VINCI CODE. The film, which famously opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival, was practically laughed at by assembled critics on the Croisette, who had come to bury the film, not praise it. When the film opened internationally this past weekend, more film critics joined the chorus of nay-sayers, calling the film everything from “borin...

The Search For (Some, Any) News on Cannes......

user
During my current experiment of trying to "do" Cannes while not actually being there (in others words, virtually if not physically), it is quite astonishing to me that so little actual coverage is available to the average American consumer. Yes, we did catch a glimpse of Tom Hanks on the red carpet, and read much speculation about the fate of THE DA VINCI CODE, but it seems that anything that is not part of the tyranny of celebrity gossip finds scant space in American newspapers or television s...

The Long Wait to see the Stars!

#
As each day rolls on I notice just how early people arrive at the red carpet for each premiere. The Da Vinci Code premiere started filling up around 2:00pm when the "stars" weren't even scheduled to arrive until 6:30-7:00pm. And I have to admit, I was right there in the mix with them. There's something about the energy in the air at a premiere. Everyone is excited to see their favorite celebrities in person...even if it is only a fleeting glance. They say Hollywood is magic...and I believe it no...

Did Cannes Kill The Code?

With the worldwide simultaneous release today of THE DA VINCI CODE across the globe, a question lingers in the air: Did Cannes kill The Code? Or more specificially, did the buildup and hype surrounding the Cannes opening create such a high expectation that the film will suffer from disappointed critics and viewers? While the mass hysteria over THE DA VINCI CODE has passed into memory in Cannes with all the subtlety of a hangover after too much champagne, the industry waits with bated breath th...

The Many Faces of Cannes...

I have discovered that being in Cannes during the festival means you momentarily step out of the normality of life and find yourself swimming in a sea of new faces. Strolling down the now blocked-off Croisette brings a surge of excitement, because I know I'm a part of something so much bigger than I can imagine. Just a week ago, the sidewalks of Cannes were quiet and peaceful, just as any smaller city is on any given week-day. But now! How can I even explain the different types of people who hav...
