The winners for the 65th Cannes Film Festival were announced overnight, and there were a few surprises. Let me know your thoughts on the festival, and the decided winners.
During the week Chris Elena and Sam McCosh, whom many of you will know from the twitter circle, contributed reviews to the site as part of the monthly theme of female directors. Check out their thoughts on In the Cut and Morvern Callar.
The first teaser trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master was released during the week. It is awesome, and it certainly looks like Joaquin Phoenix is back.
The blockbuster season is upon us. I list 25 Films to keep an eye out for over the next three months.
The 76ers lost Game 7 against the Celtics yesterday. The dream is over. Still, I am a proud fan, with the youngsters going deeper than anyone expected, even having a chance to take Game 7.
Now, on to what everyone else has been writing about:
Ruth recently took a look at a pair of short films from Christopher Nolan and Martin Scorsese.
Alex takes a look at the all-too-brief career of John Cazale, and his short film, Earrings, has a one sheet.
The first trailer for The Great Gatsby has arrived. You can check it out at Anomalous Material.
Diana has been watching a few films starring Robert De Niro recently. Check out her thoughts on Taxi Driver.
Thomas Caldwell reviews Once Upon A Time in Anatolia. It picked up the Prix (i think) last year at Cannes, and I am very much looking forward to it at SFF.
Nick made me laugh. Check out Bill Murray at Cannes.
Please welcome James Blake Ewing of Cinema Sights to his new site. James' reviews are outstanding and he always finds something interesting and often different to analyse about each film.
Cillian Murphy is an excellent actor, and Stevee takes a look at her 10 Favourite Performances. My top two: 28 Days Later and Sunshine.
I am now intrigued by a film called Sound of My Voice. Sam liked it.
Finally, but certainly not least, a fantastic new site has just been launched by Blake Howard, formerly of Castle Co-Op, called Graffiti with Punctuation. He has a fantastic co-writer in Cam Williams of Popcorn Junkie. This will be an awesome site to keep an eye on.
Hope everyone has a great week.
