Cannes Curse?

As you've no doubt read or heard by now, Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon took home the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival after 4 previous nominations (though he took the Best Director award for Caché in 2005). The win places the film as one of the early contenders for Foreign Language Film, but a Palme d'Or win doesn't necessarily carry all the way to the Oscars. Indeed, only 5 films since the beginning of the Festival went on to win the Foreign Language Film Oscar, the last one being over 20 years ago : Pelle The Conqueror from Bille August (only one film won both the Palme d'Or and the Best Picture award, Marty in 1955). The movie will undoubtely be seen by many moviegoers in months to come and it will be interesting to see if it ends in the top 5 come Oscar season. What do you think?

Here is the trailer premiere for Rob Marshall's next musical starring no less than 6 Oscar winners in the main cast. Daniel Day-Lewis headlines in this remake of Fellini's 8 1/2 as Guido Contini and posing as the women are Nicole Kidman, PĂ©nelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Oscar nominee Kate Hudson, Stacy Ferguson and Sophia Loren as Guido's mother. A heavy contender... What do you think?

The Road

Sorry for the long absence from the blog, but now that the summer season has kicked off with an 87M$ opening from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it seemed fitting this piece of news would be my first article back. After the film was pushed from last year's Oscar season, it has been announced that The Road starring Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron and Kodi Smit-McPhee will finally be released on October 16th of 2009. This film will probably be one of the favorites heading into this year's season pending positive reviews, but fans of the book will be ravishing for this adaptation from director John Hillcoat. Will you go see it?
