Cannes 2017: And the winners are…


Cannes 2017 came to an end today and my oh my what an interesting year it has been (despite my lack of entries since I was not there and therefore I can’t comment on that). The 70th edition finished in a very unconventional way, much like its jury President, Pedro Almodóvar, with many additional prizes being awarded, including a tie for Best Screenplay and a special prize for Nicole Kidman, who is clearly having the time of her life (and we love it).


Happy birthday Sofia Coppola!

We’re at this point of the year when many many many things related to cinema happen and I basically don’t have time to write about it all… Anyway, Cannes Film Festival has started so I’m going to write about it….but just not today because 44 years ago one of my favourite directors (and screenwriters…at least contemporary directors-screenwriters) was born, Sofia Coppola. So basically I’m going to talk about this great artist’s career in film (it’d be rather complicated to talk about one picture because all of them are brilliant and it would almost be impossible to choose one).
