"Say what you want about the politics,prejudice or misogyny in Tarantinos scripts and his persona,but we can all agree that his movies are a great showcase for actors."-Doug

"I think Tarantino only should retire when he gives us 10 masterpieces."-Geor

"The deterioration of Tarantino's filmography can be directly linked to Sally Menke's death.Terrible loss to the film community there."-Ian

Yes,No,Maybe So: "Grace of Monaco"

Approaching trailers for movies you're going to see no matter what (i.e.anything with your favorite actor in it) makes the Yes,No Maybe So™ question a strangely hypothetical one.Such is the case withGrace of Monacowhich is currently scheduled to open on____.No, we don't know the date yet but people will be talking about it in May after its Cannes premiere.Let's hope those of us who can't afford $1000 a night for a trip to France in the summer don't have to wait seven months* to form our own opinions;a bit of glam adult counterprogramming in the summer (look at the scenery!) would be a kind thing to do!

But where were we?

Oh yes,Princess Grace.At the beginning of the trailer we learn that she'd like to return to Hollywood -- Hitchcock wanted her forMarnie(1962) but...conflict!Her formerly charming prince won't allow for it;this is not a Disney musical and there will be no Happily Ever After...

the Yes No Maybe So breakdown is after the jump.Non-Spoiler Alert: I'm a "Yes"

Nicole Does Cannes,Part Deux.

Josehere.After its fall from grace (pardon the pun,no,really do) less than a day ago,Grace of Monacois back with a punch,having just been selected as the film that will open the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival in May.Just yesterday,it was announced that the movie had been pulled from its March 14 release date,leading people to assume that the film was in trouble.The Hollywood Reporter speculated that director Olivier Dahan hadn't delivered a final cut to The Weinstein Company,adding fuel to a fire started last year when the outspoken director accused Harvey Weinstein of cutting a "catastrophic"version of his film.

Two Graces at War

It'sJulienyour French correspondent to pass a bit of a contentious interview your way.After tampering with the ending ofAugust: Osage Countryand cutting 20 minutes offSnowpiercer,it seems Harvey Scissorhands is at it again.Grace of Monacodirector Olivier Diahanspoke to French newspaper Libération(in an article published today) about his ongoing feud with Weinstein.

The disagreement is apparently the cause of the film's delay:

What's complicated right now is to make sure that the critics will be able to judge my own version of the film,and not another one.But it's not over yet,I haven't given up.(…) There are two versions of the film: mine and his… which I found catastrophic."

Quite a strong assessment from the guy who directedMy Own Love Song,wouldn't you say?
