Cannes 2009

So it’s the fifth day of the world renowned Cannes film festival (pronounced Can and Festiveleh). The festival opened with a Disney Pixar feature titled “Up”. Quentin Tarantino’s new effort “Inglorious Basterds” (which looks great) will also  premier here and I can confirm Brad Pitt will most likely be in France for that. I’m going to go ahead and say Quentin is probably going to be bringing home his second Palme d’Or but what do I know, I haven’t seen his or any of the other films yet. All in all the festival is turning out to be a pretty exciting one because you know great movies, great location, great people,great cheese, what more can you ask for ? Well great fashion for one. Celebrities are always expected to impress when a red carpet is laid out and just because it’s an indie film festival doesn’t go to say Cannes is any different. You can see former Miss World and globally accepted pretty girl Aishwarya Rai proving my point in a Roberto Cavalli Dress.

Red Carpet


Vengeance by Johnnie To

Inglorious Basterds by Tarantino (It’s great to see a Sergio Leone reference)

Antichrist by Lars Von Trier

Looking for Eric by Ken Loach
A few notes
Inglorious Basterds looks absolutely amazing. If you haven’t guessed it by now I’m a huge Quentin Tarantino fan. Also if you haven’t seen it you should check “Entre Les Murs” which was last years Palme d’Or winner,having been in a classroom it has a story we can all relate to in a way. Oh Vengeance looks like a must watch. Also I remember Ken Loach auditioning actors for “Looking for Eric” at my college but I couldn’t be bothered going :/.
