    A Brilliant Evening

    The best film of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival thus far was a 47-year-old one shown Friday on what was one of the most electrifying evenings in recent festival history. A superbly restored version of Luchino Visconti's "The Leopard," which won the Palme d'or in 1963 and has always been one of my favorite films, debuted as part of the Cannes Classics sidebar, presented by Martin Scorsese and accompanied by the film's two surviving stars, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale. The three-hour film was listed to start at 6:15 p.m. at the Debussy in the Palais des Festivals, and Cannes is normally a tightly run ship when it comes to maintaining its schedule. At about 6:35, festival head Thierry Fremaux took the stage to apologize for the delay, which he attributed to heavy traffic on the Croisette. It was soon evident, however, that the event was running on Italian time, and it was another 20 minutes before the mainly black-tie and evening gown crowd of dignitaries, which included jury members Benicio Del Toro, Kate Beckinsale and Alberto Barbera, director of Italy's National Museum of Cinema in Torino, began filing in to take the reserved seats down front.

    Cannes Film Festival Review: "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger"

    "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger" is one of those Woody Allen movies that bolsters the conviction that sometimes he doesn't spend enough time on his scripts. More a diagram for a movie than a work that feels fully realized or inhabited by real people, this London-set comic melodrama is poplated a sorry lot of unhappy folks who switch partners and fail by chasing misguided illusions. Thanks to the attractive cast and some clever scenes, it's a notch above "Scoop" and "Whatever Works" among the Woodman's recent output, but very far indeed from "Match Point" and "Vicky Christina Barcelona."
