In Happier Cannes Times

on this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1941Bob Dylan is born in Minnesota,splinters into seven people in front of Todd Haynes' eyes.
1949Jim Broadbentis born so that we might have Harold Zidler inMoulin Rouge!the film he should have won the Oscar for on the night he actually won the Oscar.Funny how that happens sometimes.
1960Kristin Scott Thomasis born.Years later she can drop a room temperature or bring it to a boil onscreen in about 2 seconds.We miss her soooo much.
1972 Superhero Glut Producer of the CW,Greg Berlanti,is born.
1991Thelma & Louisedrove into theaters.You've been readingour 25th anniversary retrospectiveright?Part 3 hits today and we're having a blast revisiting.

2009The White Ribbonfinally wins Michael Haneke the Palme d'Or at Cannes.It goes on to two Oscar nominations for Foreign Film and Cinematography and becomes Haneke's most successful film globally,edging out the even greaterCaché.It won't stay his most successful pic for long sinceAmouris just around the corner.
2011This Sunday's Cannes resultshad the internet fuming (we won't know if the anger is justified until we see the movies) but five years ago Robert De Niro's jury gave usan astonishing roundup of winnersat the 64th Cannes includingThe Tree of Life(Palme d'Or),Jean Dujardin inThe Artist(Best Actor),Kirsten Dunst inMelancholia(Best Actress) and Nicolas Winding Refn forDrive(Best Director)

The White Ribbon > Amour > Cache
(though all three are excellent/essential)

May 24,2016 | Unregistered Commentergoran

I ADORE Leguizamo in that role

I'm all about McKellen that year.A big reason why that first LotR film feels so much like life-or-death is McKellen as Gandalf the Grey.

And OMG that 2011 Cannes lineup IS pretty stunning.

May 24,2016 | Unregistered CommenterBVR

That 2011 Cannes lineup is terrific;those would have been all of my choices from that year as well.

May 24,2016 | Unregistered CommenterMDA

My choice for Supporting Actor in Moulin Rouge!is Richard Roxburgh.

My favourite Jim Broadbent performance is in Bullets over Broadway.

Cannes 2001,2002 and 2011 were three excellent years.2011 above all.I'd have given the Palme d'Or to Le Havre - a magical film.

I was so happy Kirsten Dunst won Best Actress at Cannes.For me,that is her career-defining performance and,as someone who has experienced depression,the most realistic depiction of depression captured on film.

May 24,2016 | Unregistered CommenterSteven

Steven - agreed on both counts.

BVR -- this is true on Ian McKellen
