Whingeing about cinema and real life since 2009

Every Cannes competition film ranked and reviewed From Jarmusch to Penn. We ponder all 21 films competing for the Palme d'Or
Cannes review of From the Land of the Moon Belated note on the Nicole Garcia film that played to no great hurrahs in the first week
What is going to win the Palme d’Or? (and other questions) The official competition is over at Cannes. It was a fascinating year. Are we going to see a turn up for two books?
Cannes review of The Salesman The latest from Asghar Farhadi sees another family put under stress after a violent attack.
Cannes review of Elle Paul Verhoeven returns to form with a blackly funny rape revenge thriller. (If that's what it is)
Tara Brady guests with notes on the Queer Palm Here are the contenders at this year's LGBT corner. Any minute now...
Cannes review of The Neon Demon The latest from Nicolas Winding Refn has divided Cannes. This time we were happy to remain on board.
To the Palm Dog The lighthearted event is always a highlight of the last few days of the Cannes Film Festival
