Jarvis Cocker – “Aline” (Christophe Cover)

Way back in February of 2020, the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s new movie The French Dispatch hit the internet, and it featured a piece of music that was both familiar and unfamiliar. The that played at the end of the trailer was a bit of a standard — “Aline,” a huge 1965 hit for the French singer Christophe — but the recording was different. As it turns out, that voice belonged to the former Pulp leader Jarvis Cocker. And now, with the long-delayed theatrical release of The French Exit loomi...

Post-COVID Cannes Film Festival Rejects Notion That Cinema Must Return to ‘Normal’ (Opinion)

For all those hoping that the in-person 2021 edition of the Cannes Film Festival would mark a return to “normal,” the winner of this year’s Palme d’Or must have been a shocker — not the choice by Spike Lee’s jury (the choice was solid) so much as the movie itself: “Titane,” a radical queer take […]

‘The French Dispatch’ Review: Wes Anderson’s Dizzyingly Intricate Homage to 20th-Century Newsmen and Women

Journalists are the heroes in “The French Dispatch,” so expect film critics to be a little bit biased in their embrace of Wes Anderson’s latest. It flatters the field, after all, just not in the way that Pulitzer-centric mega-scoop sagas “All the President’s Men” or “Spotlight” may have done before. Anderson is more of a […]

‘French Dispatch’ Boosted Production in Its French Host City

Dotted by hilltop views and an historic city center, France’s southwestern city of Angoulême had certainly played host to a handful of live-action shoots in recent years. But for the most part, the commune, just under 50,000 strong, had made its name as the country’s cartoonist capital, the place where Gallic scribblers go to burnish […]

Why Tilda Swinton Remains an Artist for the Ages

I have great admiration for people who refuse to fit in, go against type and live by their own rules and convictions.

Cannes is still canceled, but that doesn’t mean we can’t daydream about what could’ve been. While the prestigious fest will not happen this year due to the coronavirus, festival organizers are still planning to release the names of the films they had hoped to screen. While this may seem futile at first glance, having your film associated in any way, shape, or form with Cannes lends said movie a certain amount of credibility. In other words, it’s an honor just to be nominated. It’s a big deal...
