Doesn’t look too exciting. I don’t know most of these names. Would like to see the Wiseman film though.
Ross McElwee has a new film?! Yes!
Whit Stillman!!!!!!!!!!! Metropolitan and Last Days of Disco were so great. Gave up on him ever coming back.
“Hermitage (Carmelo Bene, 1967)” Restoration?
Here’s hoping…do you know anything else in that section, David?
Nothing. Marie-Pierre, are you out there?
The new Garrel is his first color film since “J’entend plus le Guitaire.” His DP is Willy Kurant (“Masculine Feminine,” “Le Depart,” “The Immortal Story,” “Pootie Tang”)
Garrel, Polanski, Cronenberg, Sokurov, Sono, Ferrara, McQueen, Hui, Arnold, Akerman, Olmi, Stillman, Demme, Karmakar? That’s plenty to be excited about already. How can anyone in his right mind not know who these people are? Far more exciting than Cannes.
I guess I’m in my right mind then (whew!), because I know 10 of the names you listed. Maybe I was paying attention to an old list that wasn’t yet updated. It seems fuller now. Anyway, I’m no expert on international contemporary cinema. So don’t use me as a measuring stick. Even though I know 10 of those names it doesn’t mean I’ve seen films by all of them.
Yes, all due credit to Bobby, most of the names Nicole mentioned were officially announced today, which is when the listing was updated. Bobby commented when only the Venice Days program was confirmed.
