    Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn Introduces Restored 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' At Cannes

    We might already be in June, with the red carpets at Cannes rolled up, and put into storage for next year, but it seems there are a few odds and ends to tie up from the festival.

    Cannes Review: Prize-Winning Survivalist Love Story ‘Les Combattants’

    So we’re electing to go with the French title of this film (which translates to “The Fighters”) rather than the mooted English language versio — “Love at First Fight”— because we’re quite fond of the English language and also of this little film, and slight as it is, it doesn’t deserve to be lumbere...

Known, by the few who dare to know him, as a seriously depressing and morose filmmaker, Dumont is so fascinated by the grotesque side of human nature, ...

    Cannes Review: John Boorman's 'Queen And Country,' A Solid Sequel To Oscar-Nominee 'Hope & Glory'

    Of all the many, many sequels to land in theaters this year, by far the most unexpected is "Queen And Country." It follows up a film released 27 years ago, and which was never more than a modest hit. It doesn't have superheroes or dragons or aging action heroes. It's an autobiographical period piece...

    Cannes Review: Stéphane Lafleur's Delightful Québécois Comedy 'Tu Dors Nicole' Is The Hidden Gem Of The Festival

    Even more so than the hotly-tipped, much anticipated big-ticket movies, one of the true delights of a film festival is rolling the dice and seeing something you know nothing about. Going to see a picture that's under the radar, that doesn't yet have buzz, and you don't even know the logline for, and...
