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...

Doing the Cannes Cannes.....from 5000 Miles Away

For several personal reasons, I am not attending the Cannes Film Festival this year, a sojourn that I have taken more than 15 times in the last 20 years. So, here I sit nearly 5000 miles and six time zones away, remembering previous Croisette crawls and still feeling the rumblings of an event like no other in the film business. I remember the long, meandering walks along the famously crowded Croisette, the flop sweat of rushing from one meeting to another interview, the exasperation of negotia...

Jobs in the festival

My name is Pauline, and i am a student in a communication school called "EFAP".

Oh say can you see by the Normandy light?

user
While somewhat of a departure from the glamorous star-studded fest of yesteryear, the 2005 Deauville Film Festival brought a series of independent films to the Normandy coast in celebration of American cinema. Religion, the banality of daily life and hardship in the ghetto were among the more popular subjects explored by the directors who came to sunny Deauville to present their labors of love. Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown, Paul Haggis' Crash and Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride were among the m...

Travelingue by Gilles Jacob, on Cannes 2005

A word from the Presidents If you are elected, you embody a certain legitimacy and you have the responsibility of defining the policy of the institution you lead. This year I was determined that the event should not lose sight of two axes that I consider to be of primary importance: pleasure in meeting up and an invitation to go on a journey.To film is to chart a passage. Someone - a spectator - is doing the same thing in the opposite direction. He and the cinematographer meet in the middle and ...
