Cannes 2009 Final Video Blog #3

So was it a great year at Cannes or not? What were my favorites? Throughout my entire trip here in France, my good friend Eric Lavallee of the indie site was my wingman and guide. Not only is he from Montreal and speaks fluent French, but he's been to Cannes before. So as a wrap up to the fest, I sat down with Eric (in a movie theater) to talk about our favorite Cannes films, our impressions of the festival, and our thoughts on some particular picks. The good news is that Eric and I have vastly different tastes - he usually loves everything I hate. So this may be the most well-rounded Cannes wrap-up you'll ever find.

Watch the Cannes 2009 Final Video Blog #3 with Guest Eric Lavallee:

I hope most of you enjoyed my video blogs from Cannes, what few of them there were. Since it was my first year attending Cannes, it was a bit overwhelming, so I did as much recording as I could while at the same time trying to make sure I saw almost every big film and kept up with the regular non-Cannes news. Anyway, that being said, we'll certainly keep you updated on the status of these Cannes films and when/if they will ever be released in the US. I'm currently on my way home via Paris and will be back in the US starting tomorrow, so please enjoy. You can find my reviews here and Eric's reviews here. Until next year!

Not too shabby. We often agree to disagree, but the passion for cinema is what unites and then we discover a film like A Prophet and we could seriously talk about that film for hours. Already looking forward to seeing you at TIFF and making some more of these vids! Take care gent - have a nice flight back! Voila!

I haven't finished watching it, but you also didn't write an article about it. Did you see Samson and Delilah?

I did not see that... I think Eric did, but he didn't like it that much as far as I recall.
