The Past, directed by Asghar Farhadi

“Act now or we’ll release the lesbians!”…They’ve released the lesbians.
Apparently the jury wasn’t reading our coverage :(
I haven’t really seen any Kechiche, so I’m not sure what to think. The premise seems interesting, but the clips I’ve seen don’t seem to point towards anything monumental. And if the camera work is like Black Venus’s, then that would be a shame. I’m glad that they managed to give awards to Koreeda and Jia. Also, congratulations to the Un Certain Regard jury for having the vision to reward Panh. And Agnes Varda for acknowledging a film as small as Ilo Ilo.
Not surprised that a jury headed by the world’s richest and most powerful 13 year old boy would choose to award a film about a couple of very pretty lesbians. Now that his work is done is France maybe he can get back to producing more gems like Real Steel II and MIB 4.
Mac, Whatever Spielberg picked would have been held against him in some way. What do you think should have won? By the way, Blue Is the Warmest Color was arguably the most acclaimed film in competition. (
