My 8th Cannes Film Festival was a blast. Met up with some great friends - now old friends I guess - saw a slate of phenomenal movies, interviewed some interesting artists and wrote a lot. This post is just a way of putting it all in one place.
Here is my final wrap post for Cine-Vue. There are links throughout this post. So my favourite films of the festival were the winner Parasite which I reviewed along with nine other movies for Cine-Vue:
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Portrait of a Lady on Fire
Sorry We Missed You
Dead Don't Die
I wrote five pieces for Sight and Sound:
The Unknown Saint
Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo
I also contributed to a prediction piece which for the second year running I guessed right.
I also wrote two reviews for HotCorn:Rocketman andOnce Upon a Time in Hollywood (because it's that good).
I wrote about Terence Malick's latest A Hidden Life for Filmuforia. As well as the wonderfulDeerskin.
Multimedia section I appeared on Turkish TV talking about the festival prior to the opening and chatter with critic and pal Paolo Portugal. And was a guest on the official Cannes Festival radio, presented by Jason Solomons. All of which are available below.
This is my Letterboxd list of films watched.
