    This year at Cannes, it seems that you'll be able to throw a rock and manage to hit a celebrity. In stark contrast to last year's festival -- which some colleagues told us was the worst in a decade -- Cannes honcho Thierry Fremaux is bringing the goods this year with a cineaste's wet dream of films from some of the finest auteurs working today. However, what unfolds over the next few days will be fascinating. Not everything can be a masterpiece, there will be some unexpected disasters and more enticingly, some pleasant surprises. We've run down the list of the films that are likely to be making the biggest noise on the Croisette this year, an...

    Cliff Martinez Talks Scoring 'Lincoln Lawyer' & Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive'

    Says He Loved Alexandre Desplat's 'The King's Speech' Score & Was Hoping It Would Take The OscarFor years Cliff Martinez has been producing brilliant, but often times below-the-radar, scores, doing a lot of work for Steven Soderbergh. His first score was Soderbergh’s first film -- “sex, lies, and videotape” -- and from there the two have collaborated on a number of projects, including “Solaris,” "Kafka," "The Limey" and “Traffic.” That relationship is still going strong as they will be reteaming once again, on this fall’s virus thriller “Contagion.” On the occasion that Martinez does work for another filmmaker, the results are usually just as...
