JoBlo does Cannes

05.06.2008

We've been covering the Cannes Film Festival on JoBlo.com since 2004, and this year is no different, only unlike last year, it appears as though both the Arrow (aka John Fallon) and myself will be able to attend this time around, so starting next Monday, we shall be in the South of France, looking and searching for whatever cool movies we can find (and other cool stuff as well, of course). The festival officially runs from May 14-25, features Sean Penn as the head of the jury, and cool folk like Natalie Portman and director Alfonso Cuaron as jury members and will feature such films as (amongst others, of course):

  • BLINDNESS (dir. Fernando Meirelles)

  • CHANGELING (dir. Clint Eastwood)

  • ADORATION (dir. Atom Egoyan)

  • TWO LOVERS (dir. James Gray)

  • SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK (dir. Charlie Kaufman)

  • CHE (dir. Steven Soderbergh)

  • PALERMO SHOOTING (dir. Wim Wenders)

  • WHAT JUST HAPPENED? (dir. Barry Levinson)

  • TYSON (dir. James Toback)

  • VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA (dir. Woody Allen)

  • INDIANA JONES 4 (dir. Steven Spielberg)

  • KUNG FU PANDA (dir. Mark Osborne/John Stevenson)

  • SURVEILLANCE (dir. Jennifer Lynch)

  • CHELSEA ON THE ROCKS (dir. Abel Ferrara)

  • ASHES OF TIME REDUX (dir. Wong Kar Wai)

As per usual, the Arrow will also be attempting to see as many market films as he can, while we will both be attempting to meet Natalie Portman and for me, my ultimate goal is to take a picture in the vicinity of either Steven Spielberg or Woody Allen, at which point, my life will be given meaning again (remember when THIS happened a few years ago?).

WANT JOBLO.COM TO SEE YOUR MOVIE?

Seeing as many producers, directors, distributors will also be flocking to Cannes for the annual moving-and-shaking that is the buying marketplace, we'd also love to catch any other films that will be showing outside of the Festival, so if you're interested in our two beans on your flicks (either ON or OFF the record...i.e. we agree beforehand that we see your film and publish our views on the site OR reserve our opinions solely as feedback for yourself-- whether negative or positive), email me and let's talk shop.

WANT TO HOOK UP FOR DRINKS?

If you're a fan of the site, a producer/writer/actor, hot chick or even a dude with a backpack looking to hang and drink wine (I'm talking to you, Depp!), drop us a line and let's try and hook up for a sit-down. We'll be crashing in the actual city of Cannes again this year, so we can drink and not have to take the train back to our hotel in another town before midnight. Like Blondie once said: call me.

WANT TO INVITE JOBLO.COM TO A PARTY?

Once more, this is my subtle attempt to develop some semblance of a "night-life" while in Cannes, as opposed to just watching movies all day long, drinking in between, going back to our apartment to type all night long and then crash (it's a living, but c'mon...I need a life too!). I actually speak French, so at least I've got that going for me, but hob-knobbing with strangers is not my "forte", so drop me a line if you've got a neat "coke & hooker" party going on, or better yet, a "hooker and coke" party. Either one works for us!

Anyway, wish us luck, folks! Coverage should start late next week and I hope that I can get you guys as many cool reviews as possible. We'll also be taking as many slick pictures as possible, and maybe even some cool video here and there...
