Cannes 2010 | Rounding Up The Coverage

Cannes 2010 | Rounding Up The Coverage

The 2010 Cannes Film Festival has come to a close with the announcement of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives” as the winner of the Palme d’Or. In the twelve days and nights leading up to that conclusion, indieWIRE and its team of writers – Eugene Hernandez, Brian Brooks, Anne Thompson, Todd McCarthy, Sydney Levine, and Eric Kohn – were working hard from Croisette, bringing you the latest news, reviews, and interviews. So before you move on from this year’s fest, how about an indieWIRE-ian recap?

Our guide to all the films now offers links to film pages that include hundreds of critics grades and review links from twenty-one critics and bloggers in attendance. According to members of criticWIRE, Weerasethakul’s big winner was also the critic’s choice, closely followed Charles Ferguson’s out-of-competition economic crisis doc “Inside Job”. They were the only two films with 3 or more grades to have an “A” level average.

Other films to find considerable praise from those polled included Oliver Assayas’s out-of-competition “Carlos”, Derek Cianfrance’s Un Certain Regard entry “Blue Valentine”, and three more films in official competition: Abbas Kiarostami’s “The Certified Copy”, Mike Leigh’s “Another Year” and Lee Chang-dong’s “Poetry”.

Check out all the films here, as well as the links below to all of iW‘s coverage over Cannes, from reviews to interviews to daily “minute by minute” dispatches:
