FRESH FROM CANNES

TARTE AU CITRON CROUSTILLANT, recipe by Randall Price Aristophanes said that all dramatic stories stem from a seven basic plots. Or was it Sophocles or Aristotle? Some great dead Greek philosopher, anyway. A British writer pretended he discovered this truth only two decades ago. People forget. Films certainly reflect this notion. It’s not the plot, it’s how it unfolds, and how the director and actors bring a sense of originality..

THE PEPPER EFFECT

This is an easy one, at least in that it has only three ingredients: peppers, Feta cheese, and olive oil. The Cannes Festival is a bit like a cruise on a ship that goes no where. There are all-you-can-eat buffets from morn till night, and alcohol flows freely. Fortunately people dance the calories off in the clubs each night, or they would look like pufferfish in their elegant clothes. A..

IN PRAISE OF THE WORTHY RHUBARB

I read that Marlon Brando ate half his weight in ice cream every day, alone on a rowboat, during the filming of Mutiny on the Bounty. Perhaps I made that up, but it would account for his appearance in later years. Along with that ice cream, I imagine he ate another fourth of his weight in this rhubarb compote. It is quite addictive. In this glitzy, high-fashion circus, I was..

AN AVOCADO EPIPHANY

Before I established that I was, in fact as well as spirit, an international bon vivant, I was an Ohioan. Europeans confuse that state with Iowa and Idaho, and I can understand why. At least as far as avocados go. In the Midwest it used to be impossible to understand the avocado. When I lived there one could only find rock-hard, tasteless, practically inedible examples of this noble fruit. They..


CINEM(M)A

Nicolas Gilson et Mister Emma vous parlent des films Macbeth avec Marion Cotillard et Michaël Fassbender, Le Petit Prince de Mark Osborne, Valley of Love avec Gérard Depardieu et Isabelle Huppert, et Chronic de Michel Franco avec Tim Roth.  

Cannes J9: Dialogue de sourds

Chacun était placé à une extrémité de la journée. Le planning ressemblait presque à un geste poétique. A 8h30 Youth, à minuit Love. Un Sorrentino à l’aube, un Gaspar Noé au milieu de la nuit. Les deux cinéastes rock-stars du line-up pour ouvrir et clore la journée qui s’annonçait forcément comme la plus électrisante de l’édition. C’est ce qu’il y a de plus stimulant ici, ce moment où la programmation..

compilation de la montée des marches

En début de festival, j’avais écris un article sur les stars attendues sur le tapis rouge de cette 68ème édition. Nous voici arrivé au terme de la quinzaine. Les jeux sont faits, le tapis a été foulé et la vidéo que je vous propose ci-dessus est une compilation des différentes montées des marches de Cannes 2015. C’est, je pense, l’unique vidéo et la plus complète vidéo que vous trouverez sur..
