Inside is definitely a movie. It's almost more a documentary about the making of the special than it is a special.

Cannes reaction was stellar Cool Think they're saying it was a 9m+ standing ovation.

Pumped.

He might just win the Palme D'or after all. (I'm doubting Spike would actually give it to him, but he's walking away with something major).

The festival has looked fantastic so far. Annette, Drive My Car, Lingui, Ahed's Knee, The Worst Person In The World, Bergman Island, Compartment No. 6... all sounding great. Benedetta didn't land the best reviews, but it still looks like a blast. Memoria, Red Rocket, Titane and A Hero (which, I think has decent odds to win) haven't even premiered yet. This year looks stacked.

I think Lingui is walking away with a major award too. Reaction was really strong.

EDIT: And out of comp has some strong entries too. The Velvet Underground doc Haynes made is apparently ace. The Souvenir Part 2, Cow, After Yang, etc...

Sean Baker's Red Rocket (Trumpian ex-porn-star trainwreck drama starring Dirt Nasty) went over extremely well the other day. Felt like it came out of nowhere, but I could see it being a pretty big film this year.

Memoria's also looking like a slow-cinema crowdpleaser.

My to-be-wrong-predictions—

Palme D'or — A Hero
Grand Prix — Memoria & The French Dispatch
Jury Prize — Drive My Car
Director — Mahamat Saleh Haroun
Actor — ... Simon Rex? EDIT: Nvm, it's Landry Jones for sure.
Actress — Renate Reinsve (or maybe Tilda Swinton)
Screenplay — Julia Ducournau

Eh, close enough.

Poor Spike. Woops.

Never thought I'd see Sparks go on stage at Cannes to accept the best director award Laughing

I'm a little late on this but I just watched Summer of Soul. Really well done documentary. The restoration of the footage was absolutely incredibly done. The music of course is a big focus, but there's a ton of history there that I was not completely aware of. I won't give too much away since it's much more important coming from the interviewees, but one fantastic interview was with Charlayne Hunter-Gault (a former NYT reporter, one of the first black female reporters for a white-owned newspaper in the country) where she discussed the change from the term "negro" to "black".

Looking forward to the remake of Dune. I wonder if the talking, fire spewing vagina will make an appearance?
