Do Emmy submissions episodes matter anymore?

Cannes Begins: Iñárritu and His Jury Arrive

by Nathaniel R

The 72nd edition of the world's most famous festival has officially begun.We'll try to bring you comprehensive daily coverage by astral projecting ourselves across the ocean (i.e.watching online videos from France and following critics on Twitter).Earlier today the president of this year's main jury Alejandro González Iñárritu arrived with his gender-balanced fellow jurors in tow (or "classmates,"as Maimouna N'Diaye so charmingly put it in the preference conference)...

NYFF: Happy as Lazzaro

Jason Adamsreporting from the New York Film Festival

The surprises that flow out of Alice Rohrwacher'sHappy as Lazzarostart like a trickle - an idiosyncratic sound in the forest,a mysterious red light burning in the night sky - and flash to a flood by  the mid-point,washing away what we thought we knew of its retro-future strangenesses.The earth cracks like a shell,piece by piece,and reveals another odd shell underneath.

Lazarrotells the story of an isolated band of sharecroppers in rural Italy,whose Sisyphean work in the tobacco fields only seems to plow them further into debt day after day...

Cannes Closing Ceremony - the Palme to "Shoplifters"

by Nathaniel R

The 71st edition of Cannes has ended.The closing ceremony started all fiery with Asia Argento reminding the audience that she was raped at the festival and Harvey Weinstein used to use Cannes as his "hunting ground"but after that impassioned speech,this settled quickly into the usual Closing Ceremony format of jury introductions,and strange presentation of awards in which "presenters"don't actually do the presenting but then turn to Madame President (in this case Cate Blanchett in a dress with a bow the size of her entire body on its back) to read out the winners.

So here's one last gif-heavy look at Cannes,which is really our first look (since the films have yet to open anywhere) at the winners from the closing ceremony.Many of these titles will go on to further glories at other festivals and hopefully in theatrical release in the US and some will definitely be Oscar foreign language film submissions.But even if this is the end of their awards run,winning prizes at Cannes remains a very big deal...

Cannes: How's the Palme d'Or Competition Shaping Up?

by Nathaniel R

Which of the 21 films that Cate Blanchett and her jury are screening,will win the Palme d'Or?It's the most coveted film festival prize in the world and it's always a nail biter even when the prize seems obvious due to the vagaries of jury voting.Only one film will win the Palme but juries are expected to spread the wealth so there's a lot to consider each year among the best-received films when you're talking "winners"since acting prizes,writing,and special prizes await us next weekend.Juries have been known to surprise by handing a random award here or there to a film that critics didn't likeat all...or ignoring some obvious giant especially in the two acting awards.So in other words,take the "Cannes sensation!"reviews with a block of salt because you never know.

Not all of the 21 films have screened yet butthese 4 look like contenders of some sort to us from our vantage point across the Ocean...
