Cannes Update, Sorta














Cannes is funny. You get films like Blindness, then you get films like Kung Fu Panda. Talk about diversity. Anywho, the films in competion today were one from Argentina and one from Israel.


Pablo Trapero gets smooches from the stars/fuck buddies of his latest film, Lion's Den, which is about a pregnant women in jail, who gives birth and must decide to raise him or not. Below me is a nominee for photo of the year:

The other film is from Israel. Ari Folman directs Waltz with Bashir, an animated film about certain Middle East topics. Judging from the screenshots, this one looks like this years Persepolis, something that will change animation.












Some more later or tomorrow. I'm out.
