    Forget 'The Great Gatsby,' The Best 3D Movie at Cannes Is Directed By Jean-Luc Godard

    A jumbled semiotics class on acid, the 3D anthology film "3X3D" is the second omnibus project produced by the European Capital of Culture (following last year's "Centro Historico"), but it stands alone as a uniquely strange experience.

    With 'Only Lovers Left Alive,' Jim Jarmusch Caps a Great Year For American Auteurs in Cannes

    If the fashionable bloodsuckers of the "Twilight" movies traded their frantic stares for expressions of ennui, they might have something in common with Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), the retro cool vampires at the heart of Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive."

    Cannes Review: Droll, Louche & Languidly Playful 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Is Jarmusch At His Most Enjoyable & Accessible

    From the very first opening titles, written in a Germanic font that immediately conjures everything from “Triumph of the Will” to images of big-busted ladies screaming in campy close-up in 1970s cheapie horrors (it may be the only time in Cannes that a film got a big laugh for a typeface) it’s perfe...

    Cannes Review: J.C. Chandor Puts Robert Redford Through Watery Hell In Bruising, Formally Rigorous 'All Is Lost'

    It almost feels like JC Chandor is showing off.
