Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull kicked off the Cannes Film Festival with fan appreciation but tepid critical response.
Lucky for Harrison Ford, he doesn't read reviews anyway. But it will be hard for him to avoid all of the buzz about this one. After all, this time there aren't just negative reviews; there are news stories about the critical response and roundups of the bad reviews.
The New York Film Festival has announced its complete lineup, and it looks like they've gone bargain hunting at Shop-Rite's Cannes Cannes bash. In addition to the opening night presentation of Palme D'Or winner The Class, the snobfest I've attended 14 years in a row is also including Steven Soderbergh's Best Actor winner, Che, and Angelina Jolie's Changeling. Chouga and A Christmas Tale are also slated during the fest, which runs September 26 to October 12. Cue Cookie Monster's voiceover: "The New York Film Festival is brought to you today by the letter C for Class, Che, Changeling, Chouga, Cannes, and A Christmas Tale!" Completely by coincidence? Methinks not!
