  1. This is utterly fantastic news! The Palme d’Or has gone to an audacious film that shows this year’s voting contingent has left the box, refusing to play anything safe. This is not only a victory for the film and it’s director but to the thinking that goes with making such an important decision. Based on your own (gloriously) reported perceptions on the film, I’m sure you are quite pleased Craig, and the decision is a major highlight in your first Cannes Festival, an event I’m sure you’ll always hold highly, even if repeat trips are in the card!

    Interesting to see Bruce Dern win the Best Actor prize!

    Kudos too are in order fro the Coens and Hirokazu Kore-Eda!!!

    And then there’s the lovely Ms. Bejo, who we all know as a burst of radiance is the masterful THE ARTIST!!

  2. Not that Cannes prize translate to Oscar, but it shall be interesting to see if Dern gets a push for Best Actor this year.

  3. Sam, I’m thrilled. When it comes to situations like this, I almost always miss the boat on films that end up getting all the attention. Either I miss them or I didn’t like them. In this case, I waited in line in the rain for 90 minutes to see Blue is the Warmest Color on the first night and it’s a good thing I did since I might not have been able to on the later screenings. I probably would’ve picked The Past for one of the film awards, but I can’t nitpick any of these choices except for the director of the wretched Heli.

    Colin, I don’t know how crowded the field is likely to be and I did sense an overall luke warm reaction to the film, but I like Dern’s chances to be in the mix.
