Cannes You Dig It?

Howdy, here's a quick Cannes round-up if you've been missing all the fest action:
  •  Leos Carax's Holy Motors seems to be the talk of the town at the moment. No one can seem to really explain what it is - nor do I care to read too much about it right now - but they're all calling it "bug-nuts" or "bonkers", which means it's just topped my must-see list for the next year. Usually hard-to-please critic Mike D'angelo's tweet pretty much sums it up: 
  • David Cronenberg's hotly anticipated adaptation of Dom DeLillo's novel Cosmopolis, starring R-Patz as a billionaire trying to get across Manhattan for a haircut, hasn't wowed critics as much as I'd expected, leaving most of them cold. Looking forward to the avalanche of tweets from Twilight fans going WTF is this.
  • Click here for a full list of the winners, with Michael Haneke's Amour being particularly notable for winning the Palme d'Or since he also won the prize back in '09 for The White Ribbon.
 Let's hope we get to see some of these films at the NZFF later this year.
