The Cannes film festival opens today and I’m especially curious about two upcoming movies (can’t wait for the trailers):
My Blueberry Nights
The first English-language film by Wong Kar-Wai opens the show. It heavily features Nora Jones. I’m feeling very ambiguous about this. It could turn to be a horror flick, although very enjoyable I guess.
This NY Times article from the set has more background on the road movie.
The first feature by Harmony Korine since how many years?
I’m intrigued by the cast and one of the stills off the movie, showing Marylin Monroe and Michael Jackson talking a walk in Paris.
Diego Luna Michael Jackson
Samantha Morton Marilyn Monroe
Denis Lavant Charlie Chaplin
