Festival Cannes ’08
Just thought I’d post a lil reminder to those who are interested. For years now, for some reason, I’ve been fascinated with this festival. And I went! And touched Mr. Kar Wai, which was great. So, my allegiance continues. I’m not aware of most of the films screening this year but Indiana Jones will have its premiere, along with the re-edit/re-release of Wong Kar Wai’s Ashes of Time (Redux), a new Wenders film and a new Charlie Kaufmann. Should be neat (whenever they all do make it over here). For the full list and more info, go here.
One of my favorite parts about this festival is the poster. Last year they had a shot from In the Mood for Love and in ’06 had a poster of Samuel L Jackson and Wong Kar Wai (and all the rest of the judges) jumping in the air. Delightful. This year, Mr. Lynch has fashioned the poster.
