Cannes Film Review: ‘Mimosas’

20 May 2016 6:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mimosas,” the second feature from Morocco-based director Oliver Laxe, won the Nespresso Grand Prize at this year’s Cannes Critics’ Week, and Nespresso isn’t a terrible idea for anyone who walks in without preparation for this minimalist travelogue and crypto-Western, which offers relatively few clues to its goals and intents. Still, those familiar with the ethnographic works of Ben Rivers (who gets a thanks in the closing credits) and the films of Argentine director Lisandro Alonso (“Jauja”) will find much to admire in the movie’s combination of spiritual musings and stunning landscapes. Favoring longueurs by design, it is a decidedly noncommercial project that asks to be taken or left on its own terms.

Laxe’s first feature, “You All Are Captains” (which showed in Directors’ Fortnight in 2010), combined fiction and documentary elements, and he has said that “Mimosas” was inspired by his own travels with Saïd Aagli, who »

11 April 2016 8:55 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After all, how can one director be responsible for such diverse films as the minimalist masterpiece Gerry (2002), the Sean Connery tearjerker Finding Forrester (2000) and a shot-for-shot remake of Psycho (1998), which is clearly the most bizarre narrative experiment to ever star Vince Vaughn? (Not counting the “rats” monologue from Season 2 of True Detective.) Van Sant is behind some of the more influential independent films of the last three decades, first with

Watch: Matthew McConaughey Wants To Die In First International Trailer For Gus Van Sant's ‘The Sea Of Trees’

19 February 2016 6:39 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Cannes Film Festival is known for being the home for some spectacular flops over the years, and last spring, that honor went to Gus Van Sant's "The Sea Trees." Oliver Lyttelton said it “mixes the thrills of ‘Gerry’ with the subtlety of ‘Finding Forrester’ and the originality of the ‘Psycho’ redo,” which is to say, it's not very good, and it's not a big surprise the movie was kept off the festival circuit after that. Read More: New Photos Of Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, And Naomi Watts In Gus Van Sant's 'Sea Of Trees' Starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts, the movie follows a suicidal American on his way to die in the the dense Aokigahara forest near Mt. Fuji, who befriends a Japanese man lost in the woods, and the two search for a way out. Here's the synopsis from Cannes:  Arthur Brennan (McConaughey) treks into Aokigahara, »
