Cannes 2009 Video Blog #2

It's time to catch up everyone again on all the latest from the 2009 Cannes Film Festival with another video blog. This time I sit down on the beach with Rodrigo Perez, who runs one of my favorite film blogs The Playlist, to talk about a few Cannes films, including Lars von Trier's Antichrist and Johnny To's Vengeance. Unfortunately, as we were recording at the American Pavilion, it was very noisy, and the audio isn't the greatest. Additionally, we recorded this right as the sun was setting, so by the end you can barely see either of us it's so dark. Apologies for the low quality on this video, but enjoy it if you can anyway!

Watch the Cannes 2009 Video Blog #2 with Guest Rodrigo Perez:

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 3 more days left to go until it wraps up. My favorite film is still Jacques Audiard's Un Prophete, but I also really enjoyed Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (which I reviewed recently). I've also seen since the last video blog: Alejandro Amenábar's Agora, Brillante Mendoza's Kinatay, Bong Joon-ho's Mother, Mia Hansen-Løve's Father of My Children and Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell. Stay tuned for more video updates with more special guests!

Are you on the right? You look different (and more trendy) from the picture on the About Us page.
