    Holy Spider First Reactions

    Amy Smith: Within the first five minutes of HOLY SPIDER, my mouth was on the floor. By the end I was shaking and nearly in tears. Ali Abbasi has truly made something special and I hope people pay attention and watch what he has to say.

    Monica Delgado: Holy Spider is an example of how a filmmaker who made a couple of interesting genre films ends up overwhelmed by the demands and formulas demanded by the festival market. Ali Abbasi made a thriller that wallows in the abject. Applause for suffocated women in the foreground.

    Rafa Sales Ross: A crushing disappointment if you came in looking for the blood-pumping, batshit weirdness of BORDER, Ali Abbasi’s crime thriller HOLY SPIDER blends Fincher and Farhadi in an anticlimactic moral exercise that never banks on the thrilling promise of its first act.

    Lisa Ludwig: Completely empty and dead after Holy Spider I don’t know when was the last time a film gave me such a tight feeling in my chest. Clapping feels wrong, but it’s right, because the film deserves it, even if it is terrible in what it shows.

    Anaïs Bordages: about a series of femicides in Iran and the man who commits them, is chilling. It’s going to take me a few hours to decide if this is a good thing or not, but my immediate reaction is that I didn’t want to see this.

    Gregory Ellwood: Ali Abassi is a a very talented director. More impressed by early thriller elements in Holy Spider than trial stuff in last third

    Adam Solomons: grim, grim, grim. Effective, if formulaic. Solid performances all-round. Iranian cinema has a different convention for violence against women, maybe.

    Jack Schenker: Wow, came into this expecting a slow drama….i am now incredibly shook. This is a very fucked up film…one tht grabs you by the throat and never lets go. The first half was stronger than the second but man…what a brutal and excellent film

    FilmLand Empire: visually stunning, chilling and atmospheric investigation thriller about a real life serial killer in Iran that grows in depth with its politically charged third act. Oh and the score is haunting. Angry and masterful

    Rafael Motamayor: HOLY SPIDER is fucking bleak, and reminded me a lot of SE7EN in its first half which is an incredible exercise in tension. The 3rd act is too formulaic in its procedural aspect but the movie still rules. Also, at times I thought this was a better Joker than Joker? Idk

    Jason Gorber: part procedural, part political polemic, Ali Abbasi brings Persian precision and Danish sense of mood to this dark, disturbing period of Iranian history. Like BORDER that engaged genre tropes while twisting them this film feels like a long pent-up scream.

    Loving all the apparent excellence in Asian actressing in comp this year between Holy Spider’s Ebrahimi, Dolly de Leon in Triangle of Sadness, and the yet to come promise from Tang Wei and Taraneh Alidoosti.

    Holy Spider also sounds intriguing. Divisive, and I might even wind up on the hate side, but it’s already come with the kind of exciting reactions and conversation-starter that we used to expect out of Cannes competition.

    Forever Young First Reactions

    Matteu Maestracci: Very beautiful Les Amandiers by Valéria Bruni-Tedeschi, the young actors are admirable, Louis Garrel impeccable as usual in Chéreau, who is not spared. Beautiful declaration of love to youth, to the magic and cruelty of theatre.

    FilmLand Empire: LES AMANDIERS about Patrice Chéreau’s theatre troupe around the end of the ‘80s is hysterical and insufferable

    Gregory Ellwood: The first 20 min of Les Amandiers is funny, sexy and captivating. After that it’s a melodramatic love story that’s hard to care about.

    Pierre X Garnier: Overwhelmed by Les Amandiers by Valeria Bruni Tedeschi retracing the history of the famous 1987 class of Amandiers. A real success and tribute to Patrice Chereau…she filmed the youth so accurately, it’s quite brilliant. All the actors are terrific.

    Alexandre Janowiak: With the exception of Nadia Tereszkiewicz, whose performance could earn her a rather well-deserved prize, Les Amandiers is an unbearable ordeal. A viewing test where everything rings false and where a hysterical gallery delights in its unbearable inter-self.

    Julien Lada: Les Amandiers is a great barnum, sometimes vain and navel-gazing, excessive and garish, but also sometimes full of life and joy. The film is never better than when it is interested in the dynamics of the troop and the game, less when it wanders elsewhere

    Florent Boutet: Funny feeling after the Amandiers. As if the puzzle were dull and incomplete. Nice shards but something negative on the periphery which is very depressing.

    Arthur Brondy: Les Almandiers by Valéria Bruni Tedeschi is absolutely magnificent. Nadia Tereszkiewicz is fantastic and bursts the screen. Long ovation at the Lumière theater tonight.

    Lovia Gyarkye: A sweet but sometimes frustrating mix of fresh and familiar. It’s when Forever Young moves beyond the familiar melodrama of youthful love that it begins to tap into more authentic territory: the demands of a still-misunderstood craft and the blurred line between life and performance.

    Todd McCarthy: Although it’s cut to the absolute bone, the film still overstays its welcome, as there’s just so much one can take of the characters’ self-dramatizing self-regard.

    Peter Bradshaw: Endless drama, perpetual pouting and nonstop narcissism in this epically tiresome movie. It’s an endlessly tedious story of self-involved drama students

    Lots of good notices from pundits at Cannes for Dolly De Leon in Triangle of Sadness; wondering if she could translate those raves into a Best Actress win this weekend.

    • FYC: Everything Everywhere All at Once in any and every single category, especially Best Picture, Michelle Yeoh in Actress, Stephanie Hsu in Supporting Actress, The Daniels in Director/Screenplay, Paul Rogers in Editing, and Son Lux in Score.

    Decision To Leave First Reactions

    Amy Smith: It’s hard not to walk away from DECISION TO LEAVE being in awe of Park Chan-wook’s direction and where the narrative went. Gorgeous cinematography helps capture this mysterious yet passion-fueled story in a way that just clicks naturally. We have a good one here.

    David Ehrlich: leave it to Park Chan-wook to turn a routine detective procedural into the most wildly romantic movie of the year. less operatic than his usual stuff, but still thrillingly intricate in its way (and so much fun)

    The Oscar Expert: Decision to Leave is a dense, absorbing, beautifully stylized mystery. I’m still unpacking it and think I’ll need a second viewing to fully digest it. Which I look forward to because it’s very good.

    Karl Delossantos: DECISION TO LEAVE is Park Chan-wook at the top of his game. It begins as a fiercely paced fun detective romp that turns into a well-wrought romance about two characters finding liberation with each other. Tang Wei gives the performance of lifetime. I’m stunned.

    David Rooney: Park Chan-wook’s masterful DECISION TO LEAVE, a heady romance steeped in noirish mystery, is one of midpoint standouts of the Cannes 2022 competition.

    Rafael Motamayor: Park Chan-wook directs the hell ohof DECISION TO LEAVE, a detective thriller that pivots to a compelling romance, even if it’s convoluted plot quickly becomes distracting. The editing is spectacular.

    Robbie Collin: Decision to Leave!!! Hypnotically complex double murder-mystery with many cheeky Vertigo winks. Park makes you juggle *so much* info with no clue as to when it’s going to pay off, but he’s also having so much fun here! Amazing flourishes, A+ Tang Wei, screamingly fab final scene

    Andy Hazel: Decision to Leave is so beautiful and complex. I need to watch it again straight away. Feels like it could be Park Chan Wook’s best film.

    Luke Hearfield: Park Chan-Wook’s riveting neo-noir puzzler ‘Decision to Leave’ has some of the best direction and editing I’ve seen in years. I was enchanted by the silky camerawork, gorgeous transitions & delicate cinematography. Tang Wei delivers a knockout performance. Just Wow.

    Damian Pietrzak: Park Chan-Wook’s Decision to Leave is my favourite film at this years Cannes so far. Enchanting and mysterious detective-romance that more restrained than some of his works which is great Visually just splendid too. First 9/10.

    Jason Gorber: Park Chan-Wook merges a romance within a police thriller, twisting narratives together to produce something more ambitious than it is successful. While it doesn’t quite come together, the flourishes of a master’s touch do rear with regularity
