A crafty subversion of the Western genre, Slow West is in turns hypnotic, lyrical, and absurd. It’s a pitch-black dark comedy centered on a hopelessly romantic quest that’s more interested in episodic beats than it is a cohesive narrative, which means it won’t be for everyone. Slow West is not badly paced—not at all—but it does present a challenge to the viewer. Full Story

Sienna Miller wore two Gucci dresses to close Cannes. The first was a dusty rose tiered gown that would have been just ok if not for that red collar and the caped shoulder which saves it from being Marchesa which, kinda sounds like I just compared sh-t to diarrhoea. Not my intention.  For the final evening, it was blue leather on top and flirty skirt on the bottom and for me, the standout here is her hair. Full Story

Macbeth was screened at Cannes to very strong reviews for everything – the performances, the cinematography, the pace of the story… And for a minute there it looked like it might contend for the Palme d’Or. Instead, it ended up being Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan. That doesn’t mean it won’t be a player at the Oscars though. Full Story

The Assassin is a contender

The Assassin was the film that Sarah was most excited about ahead of Cannes. This is how she described it in her preview:  Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-Hsien is arguably one of the greatest directors in the world and he has a new martial arts film, The Assassin, about a ninth century girl who is trained to be an assassin by a nun. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal was also at the amfAR gala last night and spent some time hanging out with Zoe Kravitz. I’m about to put Zoe Kravitz on my Five List. Am obsessed with her. She’s a charismatic performer. Even though she’s active on social media, she still manages to maintain a distance, a mystery, remaining unknowable. Full Story

Like he would miss the amfAR gala, right? Because he's so charitable. And also because models. They're everywhere in Cannes but at the fundraisers they're especially important because the old rich dudes feel more generous when they're around. It's a big dick-off, all of them throwing their money around like it's attached to very large penises. Full Story

Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender looked like they were having a great time together last night at the amfAR gala in Cannes ahead of the premiere of Macbeth at the festival, one of the most highly anticipated films in competition. Two new clips have just been released showing Fassbender’s Macbeth at his coronation, looking well on his way to derangement, and then later in battle with some curious directing decisions, at least to me. Full Story

Leo's on the boat

Oh hey. I haven't posted any shots of Leonardo DiCaprio on a boat in Cannes yet. So. Here. How many billionaires offered him the opportunity? And how do you choose which one to accept? Is it possible that he's renting it on his own? Why spend his own money when there's an obscenely wealthy starf-cker willing to take care of the expenses? People were all impressed earlier this week when Leo bid $20k for a bag for his ma at a charity event. Full Story

Emily Blunt has been to Cannes for a few parties here and there. But I don’t recall ever seeing her at the Palais, representing her own film. It’s well worth the wait though as she was joined by Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin today at the photo call for Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario, in competition at the festival and receiving solid reviews so far, particularly for Emily’s performance and her role to begin with. Full Story
