    The Surprises & Notable Absences Of The 2013 Cannes Line-Up

    So the 2013 Cannes lineup has finally been unveiled and as usual, there were a fair few surprise inclusions, a fair few snubby exclusions/category decisions, and some mildly oh!-inducing title changes.

Her back catalogue is equally impressive, so it’s no wonder then that her follow-up that we’ve been waiting four years f...

    Further Breaking Down the Sight and Sound Numbers by Gender

    One reader Miran Terzic did some serious work breaking down gender votes in the Sight and Sound Top 50 film poll. If the 197 (I had 196) voted three women would make the top 50, not just one. The ones that would make it would be: Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles directed by Chan...

    Claire Denis And Isabelle Huppert Talk Inspiration And Structure Of 'White Material'

With an output that is often thematically dense and structurally fragmented, Denis is one of the few directors going today whose films will guarantee a best-of slot in any given year.

'Material' marks the first collaboration between her and the brilliant thespian Isabelle Huppert, and we had the cha...
