Jason Derulo, Paris Hilton and Others Try to Save amfAR Cannes Without Harvey Weinstein

Jason Derulo, Paris Hilton and Others Try to Save amfAR Cannes Without Harvey Weinstein
It was after midnight in France when Paris Hilton took the stage of amfAR Cannes in a “Moulin Rouge”-like tent off the Mediterranean Sea. She was here, naturally, to auction off a pair of gold-encrusted iPhones. “I love everyone,” said Hilton, to the crowd that had shelled out as much as $15,000 a head for the VIP dinner at the Hotel du Cap in Antibes. “I’ve been coming to amfAR for 20 years now,” Hilton said. “And it just gets better and better every year.” As she tried to up the stakes by adding a private party at her house (which doubles as a club), she fetched $235,000 for the non-profit devoted to fighting AIDS.

That’s a lot of money, but not the kind of cash that Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith and Sharon Stone used to hustle out of wealthy oligarchs in a star-studded gala that topped off Cannes. This

Cannes’ Glittery amFAR Event ‘Cinema Against AIDS’ Goes On Without Its Prime Mover Harvey Weinstein

The 25th annual gala amFAR Cannes charity event, Cinema Against AIDS, took place even in the shadow of Harvey Weinstein’s downfall — the man who ruled over this event for almost all of the past quarter century. Not this time, though. And though the star quotient was lower than usual, his presence wasn’t missed in any major way. Pierce Brosnan, bringing in over $1 million for his Bob Dylan painting, and perennial Chris Tucker and Nicole Scherzinger were among the few…

‘Under The Silver Lake’ Film Review: Andrew Garfield Lives Dirtbag Dream in La Story

‘Under The Silver Lake’ Film Review: Andrew Garfield Lives Dirtbag Dream in La Story
How’s this for irony? Those very same qualities that allow “Under The Silver Lake” to so thoroughly evoke both the city of Los Angeles and a certain Angelino lifestyle also turn the film into a bit of a mess. Sprawling, indulgent and with many pockets of pleasure, David Robert Mitchell ‘s film – which premiered Tuesday night in Cannes – is L.A. in the same way that “Apocalypse Now” was Vietnam.

Think of it as “Ready Stoner One,” as it wrangles a rather overwhelming compendium of references, easter-eggs and winks to some of the foundational texts of contemporary millennial culture and offers them as clues in a Galaxy Brain conspiracy.

Channeling Shaggy from “Scooby-Doo,” Andrew Garfield stars as Sam, a grade-a underachiever living the dirtbag dream in (where else but) the city’s Eastside hipster neighborhood of Silver Lake. Rent is long past due and the threat of eviction looms alarmingly close,

‘The House That Jack Built’ Film Review: The Real Shocker Is How Dull Lars von Trier’s Film Is

‘The House That Jack Built’ Film Review: The Real Shocker Is How Dull Lars von Trier’s Film Is
Of all the shocking things about Lars von Trier’s “The House That Jack Built,” the most shocking might have been this: At the film’s Tuesday-morning Cannes Film Festival press screening at the Grand Theatre Lumiere, hardly anybody booed.

This has been a surprisingly boo-free Cannes, but von Trier seemed to be a lock to get a theater full of derision from the notably cantankerous press corps. And when you see the reports that 100 people walked out of the Monday night premiere, from which the vast majority of press were excluded, it came as a real surprise that the end of the long, violent, gleefully transgressive film was met with polite applause and only the smallest sprinkling of naysayers.

But the reaction fit the film — because in between various killings and vivisections, “The House That Jack Built” is kind of a bore. As much as von Trier loves to

‘American Idol’ finalists predictions: Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner and Maddie Poppe will make Top 3

Cade Foehner on ‘American Idol’: Prince’s ‘Jungle Love’ is his best song on season 16 so far

Cade Foehner has made it into the Top 5 of “American Idol” based on the eight songs he has sung to date on the ABC revival of this reality competition series. Of these, the clear choice for viewers’ favorite is “Jungle Love,” the 1983 song written by Prince for The Time. He performed this track on the May 6 show and it took almost one in four votes in our poll.

Virtually tied for second are Foehner’s rendition of the Bob Dylan classic “All Along the Watchtower,” which was his Top 24 solo, and his first Top 14 song, Fleetwood Mac‘s “Black Magic Woman.” Surprisingly, his version of Kaleo‘s “No Good,” which won over judge Katy Perry in the Top 50, merited a mere 9% in our poll. Do you agree with these results?

Take a look at Foehner’s set list below and then weigh in with your pick. And be sure to

Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’ Gets Longer Criterion Version

Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’ Gets Longer Criterion Version
Terrence Malick has secretly been working on an extended version of “The Tree of Life,” which will be included by the Criterion Collection as a supplement to an enhanced special-edition Blu-ray and DVD release later this year.

The film, which won the Palme d’Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, has grown 50 minutes of new branches — although roots might be a better metaphor, since the additional material focuses primarily on the lives of the O’Brien family (characters played by Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain) and the backstory of Jack (Sean Penn), whose search for meaning in the wake of his brother’s death drives a transcendental quest unlike any previously depicted on film.

“Terry doesn’t see this as a director’s cut,” says Criterion president Peter Becker, who insists that the 139-minute theatrical version is the official “director’s cut” and remains the centerpiece of the Blu-Ray edition.

Summer Review – Cannes 2018

  • HeyUGuys
In competition in Cannes this year is Russian director and festival darling (Betrayal was in competition in Venice in 2012) Kirill Serebrennikov. Though the film is in black-and-white, it is full of vibrant colour.

The film opens with a group of girls entering a gig backstage, up ladders and fire escapes via the men’s loos. We could be almost anywhere, at any time, the black-and-white taking us back to the 1960s. So far, so global. But once inside the venue, we are soon made aware of the differences between audiences on either side of the Iron Curtain: everyone is seated, toes are surreptitiously tapped, and standing up or waving posters are strictly policed and forbidden. Welcome to Leningrad circa 1981.

The band on stage is led by the charismatic Mike (Roman Bilyk). He loves Marc Bolan, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and of course David Bowie. New music is seeping into the

Here's a brief history of other musicians doing goofy impressions of Bob Dylan

  • The AV Club
Bob Dylan, giant of postwar Americana that he is, is still an easy target for parody. He has a funny singing voice that you can emulate by plugging your nose; a lot of his most famous tracks are filled with abstract lyrics sung in rambling verses; sometimes he wears a harmonica on a neck holder—any jackass can work…
