Cannes’ Blood Red Year

Cannes' Blood Red Year

NY Times‘ Joan Dupont says Cannes will bring more gore than love:

So what’s new? A feast of horror and gore. Mr. von Trier’s “Anti-Christ” is a vision of the world created by Satan. Gaspar Noé — of the scandalous “Irréversible”(2002) — should spook again with “Soudain le vide” (Enter the Void); Johnnie To’s “Vengeance” stars Johnny Halliday as avenger; in Mr. Tarantino’s World War II epic the avengers slaughter Nazis. Park Chan-Wook’s “Bak-jwi” (Thirst) is about a priest who turns into a vampire; Isabel Coixet’s “Map of the Sounds of Tokyo” is a thriller about a female killer. Brillante Mendoza, who sexed up the selection last year with “Serbis,” a story of prostitution, returns with pitch-black “Kinatay,” in which the hero is manipulated by a psychotic murderer.
