Pierce Brosnan: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

24 June 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed Pierce Brosnan in conjunction with his third outing as James Bond, in Michael Apted's The World Is Not Enough, in 1999. Brosnan was alternately charming, erudite, thoughtful and intense during our two hour chat. His native intelligence shone through it all, as did a sense of decency which many people seem to acquire after enduring and surviving hardship in their formative years.

Bonding With Brosnan


Alex Simon

There are several dangers in becoming a cultural icon, not the least of which is the stigma that your public will forever keep you imprisoned in the mold of your iconography, allowing the recipient a privileged, if imprisoned, existence, particularly if that person is an artist. Sean Connery faced just such a dilemma during the height of James Bond-mania in the mid-60's. A serious actor, Connery desperately wanted to break out of the action hero mold that was British Superspy James Bond, »

The jury, made up of actors, filmmakers and a musican, was led by co-presidents Joel and Ethan Cohen.

Speaking at a press conference after the ceremony, Joel said of their approach to judging the 19 Competition titles: “We are not a jury of film critics - we are artists looking at work and deciding what to celebrate in each of the works.”

Ethan said: “We couldn’t give a top prize to every movie - but we did try to balance out the attention on each of the films.”

Joel added: “We would have given more films multiple prizes but those are the rules »

And the Cannes Film Festival Winners Are...

24 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Cannes Film Festival is the most prestigious film festival in the world, and its top prize, the Palme d’Or, is film's highest honor. Consequently, people have really fervid feelings about what they think should win. Regardless of which film takes whichever award, it’s usually controversial. This year, the main competition jury, considered by some to be one of the best juries in the festival’s long, illustrious history, was headed by Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo, No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski), and featured Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan (Mommy), Sophie Marceau, Rossy de Palma, Rokia Traoré, and Sienna Miller. Here are the films that won at this year’s Cannes, as reported by Indiewire. Let the angry think pieces commence.Palme d'Or: Dheepan, directed by Jacques Audiard Grand Prix: Son of Saul, directed by Laszlo Nemes Best Director: Hou Hsiao »

Cannes: Jacques Audiard's 'Dheepan' wins Palme d'Or

24 May 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Other winners include Son Of Saul, The Assassin, Chronic, The Lobster, The Measure Of A Man, Carol and Mon Roi.Scroll down for full list of winners

Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan has won the Palme d’Or at the 68th Cannes Film Festival (May 13-24).

Review: Dheepan

Critics had predicted that Todd HaynesCarol or Hou Hsiao-hsien’s The Assassin would take the top prize, while momentum appeared to shift to Laszlo Nemes’ Son Of Saul when it picked up the Fipresci prize. Even the bookies favoured a different title, pegging Yorgos LanthimosThe Lobster for the prestigious honour.

But while they each left the Lumiere Theatre with one prize apiece, it was Dheepan that claimed the top honour.

The drama centres on a Tamil freedom fighter (Antonythasan Jesuthasan, one of three non-professional Tamil leads) who, near the end of the Sri Lankan Civil War, flees to Europe with a makeshift family hoping to claim asylum »

"Dheepan" Takes The Cannes Palme d'Or

24 May 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After nearly two weeks of screenings, the 68th Cannes Film Festival has come to a close with this year's awards having now been handed out.

Jacques Audiard's "Dheepan" has taken the top prize of this year's Palme d’Or, a surprising choice considering reviews for the film were mixed. Jesuthasan Antonythasan stars in the film as a Sri Lankan Tamil warrior who flees to France and ends up working as a caretaker.

Laszlo Nemes' raved about "Son Of Saul" scored the second place Grand Prix award, whilst Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Lobster" took this year's Jury Prize. Also scoring honors were Rooney Mara ("Carol") and Emmanuelle Bercot ("Mon Roi") sharing a best actress win, and Vincent Lindon ("The Measure Of A Man") winning for best actor.

Cannes: Jacques Audiard's Dheepan Wins Palme d'Or

24 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The 68th Cannes Film Festival has wound down after 12 days of premieres, screenings and controversies about shoe policies, and all that was left was the award ceremony to wrap things up. Winners this year included Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan, which took the Palme d’Or and Rooney Mara for Todd HaynesCarol. Audiard winning seems something of a controversial choice, since, while it was admired, it hasn’t been as praised as the likes of Son Of Saul or Carol. Still, the other films got their due alongside quirky romantic drama The Lobster and Hou Hsiao-hsien’s impressive martial arts epic The Assassin. The jury for the main competition this year included Joel and Ethan Coen, Guillermo del Toro, Sienna Miller, Sophie Marceau, Jake Gyllenhaal, Rossy de Palma, Rokia Traoré and Xavier Dolan.

24 May 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — The 2015 Cannes Film Festival has officially come to an end and, in something of a surprise, the winner of the Palme d'Or went to Jacques Audiard's "Dheepan."  The presidents of the jury, Ethan and Joel Coen, reminded the media during the final press conference these honors weren't determined by critics.  Instead, they were chosen by a nine-member jury which included notable names such as Guillermo Del Toro, Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan, Sienna Miller and Sophie Marceau. Other major winners included "Son of Saul," which took the Grand Prix, "The Assassin," which took Best Director for Hsiao-hsien Hou; "The Lobster," which won the Jury Prize; and "Chronic," which won Best Screenplay. Veteran French actor Vincent Lindon was a mile surprise picking up the Best Actor prize for "La Loi Du Marche," but the bigger story was Best Actress.

'Braveheart': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Mel Gibson's Epic

24 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In retrospect, the popularity of "Braveheart" seems like a foregone conclusion.

The movie, which opened 20 years ago this week (on May 24, 1995), won five Oscars, two of them for star Mel Gibson (in his roles as producer and director). The Best Picture winner thrilled audiences as well as critics with its exciting battle scenes, stirring speeches, and sweeping historical narrative of 13th-century Scottish independence fighter William Wallace. At its center is a charismatic performance by the "Lethal Weapon" star, then at the height of his popularity as a box office draw and action hero. It grossed $210 million worldwide. Two decades later, it's still the most famous movie ever made about Scotland.

Still, even though the movie has been a staple for 20 years, there may be plenty you don't know about it, from its generous liberties with history to the R-rated pranks the director pulled on his leading lady.

Sophie Marceau Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction at Cannes Film Festival, Flashes Nude Underwear—See the Pic!

15 May 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Cannes Film Festival has not been kind to Sophie Marceau...or her ensembles. Marceau had the unfortunate experience of suffering yet another wardrobe malfunction at the famed film festival, this time by accidentally flashing her nude underwear that she wore underneath her suit-style gown. The French actress appeared to be completely oblivious of her snafu as she made her way up the stairs on the arm of a companion. Although she made sure to hold her dress to the side so that she wouldn't trip or step on it, it seems her preventative actions were a little overzealous and resulted in the peek-a-boo look at her granny panties. Accidents aside, she looked gorgeous in her gown and took her look to the next level »

Meet the Jury of Cannes Film Festival 2015

14 May 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It was brief, but interesting. The Cannes jury members, led by presidents Ethan and Joel Coen, held a press conference on opening day to explain their love for cinema and what jury duty at the world's biggest film festival entails. The moderator introduced each jury member with a brief bio -- ladies first: Rossy De Palma, Sienna Miller, Sophie Marceau and Rokia Traoré, Jake Gyllenhaal, Guillermo Del Toro and Xavier Dolan. So what were their reactions when they were asked to join the jury? [caption id="attachment_269453" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Fox[/caption] Rossy De Palma couldn't keep her cool: "I just went aaaah!" she said holding her head as if to keep it from falling off from the excitement. Composer Rokia Traoré was more level-headed: "I do an artistic job that touches on cinema.” Guillermo Del Toro: “Thierry [Frémaux, Delegate General of the Festival] had called me three or four times previously to be part of the jury, but »

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Gives Cannes a Testosterone Jolt With a Feminist Twist

14 May 2015 1:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The world premiere of “Mad Max: Fury Road” gave the Cannes Film Festival a testosterone jolt with a feminist twist Thursday, as stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, director George Miller, and other main cast strutted down the red carpet on a balmy evening as Van Morrison’s “Gloria” played.

Theron, in a stunning skintight yellow gown, first pranced for the paparazzi with Sean Penn (pictured) then walked back to join the “Mad Max” entourage.

Earlier, as a musical selection comprising plenty of Mowtown, Elvis Presley, and the Rolling Stones blasted, a slew of stars did their red carpet dances as the flashlights popped. Among them Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, Isabella Rossellini, Jane Seymour, Fan Bingbing, Michelle Rodriguez, Ethan Coen and his wife Tricia Cooke, and fellow jurors Guillermo del Toro and Sophie Marceau, who had a slight, very French, wardrobe malfunction on her way up the steps.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan, Guillermo del Toro on their Cannes jury duty

14 May 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Cannes is a fest littered with films and press conferences, so it’s perhaps no surprise that even the formal introduction to the jury becomes one of the hottest events of the day, with journos lining up well in advance to get a spot. The makeup of the jury is usually a fascinating and diverse group drawn from the world of cinema, and this year’s group seems particularly boisterous.

For North American audiences there are some faces not quite as familiar (such as Malian singer/poet Rokia Traoré, the Spanish Actress Rossy de Palma best known for her work with Pedro Almodovar), but the rest have had more out-of-the-fest bubble success. Sophie Marceau was in Braveheart and the Bond flick The World is Not Enough, and recently has directed several projects. Sienna Miller has had a massive year, including her major role in the box office hit American Sniper. »

You can tell that the Cannes Film Festival is well truly off the starting blocks when the jury - this year headed by the Coen Brothers Ethan and Joel - gather to give thoughts on topics ranging from the privilege of sitting in judgement on their peers to why television will never trounce the cinema-going experience and how they’re all going to get along together.

From the evidence on view at Wednesday's meeting with journalists, the answer would seem to be just fine. Besides the traditional awards they have also been told by the Festival organisers that they have the freedom to create their own particular award for an aspect of the films in Competition.
