CANNES – Once again from the south of France and the 66th Cannes Film Festival a few days post-fest, HitFix’s Gregory Ellwood and Guy Lodge of In Contention survey the lay of the land, this time focusing on the festival’s second week.
Did the widely dismissed Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives” find a more immediate fan club than last year’s “The Paperboy?” Was bringing “Nebraska” to the fest a good idea? Will James gray’s “The Immigrant” be met with a split reaction? Perhaps most importantly, how did Palme d’Or winner “Blue is the Warmest Color” measure up? Find out in the video above. Click here for thoughts on the fest’s first week of premieres.
Check back later in the week for a final piece of video expanding on Oscar thoughts coming out of this year’s festival.
