Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

In the Courtyard Is One of the Funnier Films About Depression

7 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Thoroughly nonjudgmental in its observations, Pierre Salvadori's In the Courtyard ranks as one of the funnier films about victims of depression and mental illness. The afflicted are Antoine (Gustave Kervern) and Mathilde (Catherine Deneuve), and their chemistry provides the dynamic that powers Salvadori's idiosyncratic portrait. Antoine is a singer who no longer takes pleasure in music; a deeply depressed insomniac, he needs a change. He ends up working as a janitor in the apartment building owned by Mathilde and her husband, Serge (Féodor Atkine), and his misguided, hapless attempts to do his job provide the basis for much of the narrative. Weathered down by life, Antoine is too despondent to enforce the complex's rules: He's soon smoking crack with one »

3 Hearts | Review

Heart to Heart to Heart: Jacquot’s Romantic Drama Can’t Cover Every Angle

Despite sporting the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Catherine Deneuve, 3 Hearts, the latest from Benoit Jacquot often feels like a rather stilted endeavor. The follow-up to his most internationally renowned title to date, Farewell, My Queen, Jacquot’s underwhelming love story uses a contrivance often seen in romantic comedies, only he replaces the comedy with a somber indifference that seems to work against the believability of the film.

The film seems as if it belongs to an earlier era of filmmaking, a time where repressed feelings would roil just beneath the surface until they boiled over to cause living hell for all affected parties lost amidst the unmitigated power known as love. This is the stuff of classic melodrama, and the three hearts at the center of this triangle often feel more like archetypes than actual people, »
