Green Room-Review

  by, Cameron Lui   This heavy metal centric horror thriller is based in a KKK inspired white supremacist barn party green room. If you love dogs and want to continue not being afraid of them don’t watch this movie, trust me.    The premise of the movie is pretty unique and it opens with some awesome moments but as with most horror movies it gets painfully predictable. I won’t give any spoilers but you can probably guess who lives out of the band and the ra...

Inside Out-Review

by, Cameron Lui   Once again, Pixar delivered a heart-warming and thought provoking cartoon that can please any age.    The five emotions are played by Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith and Lewis Black, which in itself guarantees a quality film. The way they intermingle is so political that it gave room for a lot of flexibility to make the story represent the cause of human behavior. What makes "Inside Out" so intriguing for adults is the evaluat...

Top Movies Thus Far

  by, Cameron Lui   Ive seen 7 movies at the festival and counting, so here's my thoughts on the best ones so far.    1. The Lobster-hands down the best film in the festival thus far. It has a clear agenda that is executed with aggression and creativity. The acting was flawless, the writing beautiful, and it packs one of the biggest punches in cinema to date.    2. The Irrational Man-beautifully depressing film that has the honesty that only Woody Allen...

Cemetery of Splendor-Review

user
  by, Cameron Lui   This movie is basically two hours of soothing ocean sounds. If you are having some insomnia issues I recommend this movie.    Basically, most of the audience walked out of the theater by the third act and the rest were bobbing their heads in and out of a mid-day nap.    I proudly kept my eyes open to soak up the entire movie but for some reason the director decided to go nowhere with a premise that had a lot of potential.    &l...

Sea of Trees-review

by, Cameron Lui   Critics have not been very fond of the premier booed “The Sea of Trees,” directed by the talented Gus Van Sant.    Mathew McConaughey and Naomi Watts did not deserve the criticism they received during the premier. While many critics have called this one of the worst recent films by McConaughey, I thought he turned out yet another consistently passionate performance.    What made the movie so insightful was how right they got the dark...

True Love is Blind-Lobster review

  by, Cameron Lui   I have never in my life seen an ending that made multiple audience members sprint for the exits. The Yorgos Lanthimos directed “The Lobster,” stops at nothing to make the audience feel as uncomfortable as possible.    The quick and unexpected violence left the audience in shock and made many consider leaving the theaters. However, the violence had so many blatant metaphors for modern day love that the extremity of them were almost a...

Tale of Tales, a Mother/Son relationship

  by, Cameron Lui   Salma Hayek is not a mother to mess with. She makes it clear to her son that his behavior is disappointing yet he continues to sneak off to the woods and in nooks of the castle to hang out with his virgin birth born, peasant twin. I could explain that better but it would be too big of a spoiler.    One of the most subtly beautiful scenes is when she calls for her son to come into her chamber and mistakenly calls in his peasant twin. She does not see...

The Irrational Man Review

  Regardless of opinions surrounding his controversial personal life, Woody Allen has strong philosophical views which he passes on through his work.   “The Irrational Man,” stars Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, whom both turned in yet another powerful performance with stretched out and brutally honest conversations.    What made the movie so great was its directness. While the heavy dialog made for an uncomfortable movie, it was clearly the intention of th...

Mad Max Review

  “Mad Max” Immediately hits the audience with heavy social commentary, assuring the audience knows that this is not going to be your average blockbuster action flick.    "I don't want to speak for George but what I took from all the Mad Max films is it was very grounded with what a lot of scholars talk about with globalization and global warming, leadership getting out of hand and the control of people,” Charlize Theron said in the “Mad Max&r...

5 Things we Learned from Mad Max

by, Cameron Lui I just saw the re-screening of Mad Max and it was absolutely spectacular. A review is coming, but for now here are five fun components of the film that are hard to miss.    5 things we learned from Mad Max:   1. Tom Hardy wears more masks in his movies then Richard Hamilton in ’04. 2. Only Nicholas Hoult can pick up girls looking like the albino monk in “The Da Vinci Code.” 3. Charlize Theron can beat up Tom Hardy with one hand tied behin...

What are People Watching?

            Manilo Gomarasca is a film critic for nocturno.it and he has already seen a couple of interesting movies being sold in the market.  So far he has seen “Martyrs,” A new Nicolas Cage movie and the third installment of “The Human Centipede.” He suggests staying away from the first two. “Martyrs” sounded as if it was a bit of a disappointment and Nicolas Cage did not put his best put forward according to Gomarasca....

Wifi Nightmare!

For the low price of 19.90 euro, festival attendees can have access to wifi throughout the duration of the festival. Ive tried this personally and so far in the past hour I’ve been able to load one Facebook message.   Nikos Talbi-Lykakis, a talented screenwriter currently working on his upcoming feature “The Passport,” is not pleased with the current situation.   “Its unbelievable that in a place like Cannes you can’t find free wifi…It’s n...
