Cannes Flashback 2007: Tarantino, Duvall, ‘Entourage’

Cannes Flashback 2007: Tarantino, Duvall, 'Entourage'

Here’s the last batch of Cannes flashback photos I plan to share, as things heat up for the start of Cannes 2011. I don’t think I’ll be taking photos this year, as I haven’t since 2007. Here are some more from that year:

(At the Fortissimo Films party on the beach filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and actress Rose McGowan pose for some pics. When I chatted with Robert briefly, he pointed to his trademark cowboy hat and said, “I’m representin’ for Austin.”)

(Enjoying a veritable world-cinema powwow at the Fortissimo party, are actress Michelle Yeoh laughing with actress Tilda Swinton and master cinematographer Christopher Doyle. Filmmaker Jim Jarmusch hangs in the background.)

(Quentin Tarantino works the crowd at the after-party for his 2007 Cannes entry, ‘Death Proof.’)

(Up in a remote villa, foreign sales company Wild Bunch hosted their annual party. It was a festive scene of dancing and socializing. And unprintable debauchery.)

CANNESduvall.jpg

(No, Robert Duvall is not singing lounge tunes… he’s answering one of my many brilliant questions during our panel. I’m seated to his left, and this photo was taken by one of the audience members. I moderated a discussion with Duvall at the American Pavilion, and he was in town for the premiere of the James Gray thriller ‘We Own the Night.’)

(They were in town for the fictional premiere of their project, ‘Medellin,’ as we watched the HBO ‘Entourage’ boys walk the Croisette while filming scenes for the the show’s Cannes episode.)
