    Cannes Review: Worthy Medieval Parable 'Michael Kohlhaas' Nowhere Near Sum Of Impressive Parts

    Itself loosely based on a true story, the 19th century novella by Heinrich von Kleist, “Michael Kohlhaas," has been adapted several times for screen, notably by Volker Schlöndorff in 1969, even spawning “The Jack Bull," a pretty good HBO restaging starring Johns Cusack and Goodman, in 1999.

    How Cannes' Critics Week Section Heralds New Filmmaking Talent

    Cannes is first and foremost about the Palme d'Or and the main competition of some 20 or so films, though numerous sidebars contain at least as many interesting alternatives. The festival's leanest section, Critics' Week, programs first and second films from emerging directors. This year offered a s...

    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...
