The 67th Cannes Film Festival

Some notes:

1) I posted my Top 10 with some overlying thoughts on the fest at The Film Stage here, which links to each piece I wrote (with some omissions - mainly I have not written about the Techine and the Ostlund yet, and hope to soon). I also did a podcast with various good folks on the films that you can listen to here.

2) Pour one out for Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, my first official walk out since I became a paid critic. The only other time I previously walked out of a film was in 2004 when I screwed up sneaking into a screening of I Heart Huckabees and did not want to sit through Ben Affleck…
