Cannes 2009 Video Blog #1 with Guest Sperling Reich

2009 Cannes Film Festival

Although we're officially 4 days into the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, this is my very first video blog. Apologies for taking so long getting this posted, as it's been a challenge to find time for two of us to chat films. I've been working my ass off at Cannes so far - whenever I'm not in a screening, I'm working hard to keep the site updated every day. In the very first video blog below, I'm joined by Sperling Reich (find him on Twitter), who attends every major film festival, and has returned to Cannes for the 11th time. We talk about Park Chan-wook's Thirst, Jane Campion's Bright Star, and Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock. Enjoy!

I'll be back again soon with another video blog update live from the Cannes Film Festival in France in the next few days. The festival lasts until May 24th, which means there are currently 8 more days left to go. My very favorite film of the moment is Jacques Audiard's Un Prophete, which I wrote a review for earlier today. I've also already seen (in the order in which I saw them): Pixar's Up, Francis Ford Coppola's Tetro, Park Chan-wook's Thirst, Jane Campion's Bright Star, Michel Gondry's Thorn in the Heart, Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock, and Bong Joon-ho's Mother. Stay tuned for more updates with more special guests!
