    I think Annette could easily win the Palme D’Or.

    The opening film NEVER finds a place in the palmarès.. It never happened in 74 editions. Maybe Annette is strong enough to break this stat !

    I looked through descriptions of all the films at Cannes – geez, Lea Seydoux, how many movies is she in at this year’s Cannes? (; I kept seeing her name over and over again! Super excited by the French films!!!!

    The conventional wisdom seems to be that Spike Lee can credibly push his friend Adam through in Best Actor (unless there’s an unlikely last minute addition of Macbeth). It’s always an uphill battle for the first film seen at the festival to be remembered enough by the final jury deliberation at the end, then again few of them have been by anyone like Leos Carax.

    Not surprising in the least that Carax wasn’t going to work for everyone, though I wouldn’t be surprised if its more mixed with the local French critics than the rest.

    I mean it could be meh but this is a third-hand account based on a Tweet from someone who read in something else that it was emotionless. So I’d take with a grain of salt for now.

    That’s it, that one random Twitter user just ended the film’s buzz with an emoji. Right?

    Seriously. Use your brains.

    An emoji based on a Tweet based on apparently having read a comment in a magazine. Plus it’s Carax – it is destined to be divisive. Edgar Wright thinks its a masterpiece, this other person doesn’t. It’s Carax!

    It is well-known that every Oscar nominated film of the last decade has been beloved by every single person on earth, to be fair, so this one sorta negative comment has indeed wiped Annette straight out of the race.

    Honestly this poster only seems to pop up in threads to say something negative so I’m not surprised they’ve latched on to this.

    And yeah anyone expecting a film by Leos Carax to be universally beloved has never seen one of his works.

    I mean I could go through your comment history and prove it, but instead I think I’ll just report this unnecessarily abusive comment and put you back on ignore. Have a good day.

    This is an iconic judging panel! It’s great to see perennial Cannes attendee Hausner here.
