The Queen : New York FF Press Conference

But the England that poured out its grief and condolence at the shocking loss of Princess Diana in the waning summer of 1997 was a nation that had become unfamiliar to the monarch who, at the time of her ex-daughter-in-law’s tragedy, had held the British throne for 45 years: Here was a people mourning its princess, awaiting royal public acknowledgment of what Elizabeth II preferred to treat as a private family affair.

Borat Screening and Press Photos

The first official screening of Borat was held at the Olympia Theatre on rue d’Antibes. Audience members laughed and gasped at the crazy scenes portrayed in the film. Some audience members thought the film was a little too racist, while others thought it was just plain funny. Actors such as The Rock even watched the movie in its entirety. Borat is the creation of Sacha Cohen, a British actor who also plays Ali G in his HBO series. The movie centers around Borat who is “Kazakhstani televisi...

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......

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...

VIP and That 70s Show

During a night of the usual antics and partying, I walked around the line of 250 people waiting outside to the new look of the VIP club in Cannes. The club is only set up during the festival and boosts a huge celebrity clientele. While partying on the second night of the festival, two of the cast members of “That 70s Show ...

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...
