Cannes Film Review: ‘Maps to the Stars’

Onetime wannabe Bruce Wagner wrote this script while working as a limousine driver. By the time his cynical satire finally made it to the bigscreen, its time had passed, the intended toxicity diluted by the fact nearly everyone involved was now “in.”.....»»

10 Ways Humans Used to Live That Seem Bizarre Today

There are so many things that people take for granted every single day. Things that seem like they are just part of life to us now were luxuries to our ancestors, some of them may have even seemed impossible. The ways that people used to live even decades ago seem absolutely unfathomable now; the ways that ancient humans existed seem like they can’t even be real. Did you know that time wasn’t even officially established until 1840? A railway company decided that time should be synchronized so people could catch their trains. Here are ten ways that humans used to live that might blow your mind, and some of them are more modern than you’d think. Used Physical Maps in the Car This one isn’t as drastic as several of the others featured on this list but it’s one that seems just as crazy. Many people haven’t even seen a map, but there was a time where people relied heavily on maps to get anywhere at all. When planning a road trip, instead of just checking online or plugging an address into the GPS, people had to purchase maps of where they would be going and either write down the directions by hand or use the map as a reference guide throughout the trip. No thanks. Used Knives to Maintain Their Nails Having long fingernails, sometimes up to a foot long, was a status symbol back in the day. It showed other people that you didn’t need to work or carry out your daily activities on your own because you had someone to do it for you. Fingernail clippers weren’t invented until 1875, so before then, people had some weird methods of keeping them short. There have always been people who prefer to bite their nails. But what about the rest of us? Romans used knives to carefully pare down their nails until they were a manageable length. Perhaps the most shocking, in China, they would typically wait for them to just snap off on their own. Used Mercury as Medication Mercury is now known to be incredibly toxic to humans. Symptoms brought on by mercury poisoning include nerve loss in the hands and face, memory problems, trouble seeing and walking, and more. There is no true cure for mercury poisoning, either. But, back in the 1500’s, mercury was seen as a cure of its own. Dr. John Hunter claimed to have cured himself of syphilis using mercury. It is now thought that his syphilis was just in a remission period. Different methods included using it as an ointment and taking a vapor bath. These were used as treatments for hundreds of years. Used Cocaine for… Everything Some of the greatest minds in medical history, such as Sigmund Freud and William Halsted, swore by their use of cocaine. It was originally included in the soft drink Coca-Cola, which is likely how the drink got its name. It was also touted as a miracle drug because of the euphoric feeling it produces as well as [...] The post 10 Ways Humans Used to Live That Seem Bizarre Today appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

With Good Time, however, Pattinson may have taken his acting chops up another notch as a bank robber who’s determined to save his mentally disabled brother (Benny Safdie) from harm. The feature received a standing ovation during its premiere at Cannes, and it’s safe to say Pattinson may be remembered come Oscar nominations time. The second trailer to Good Time, directed by the Safdie Brothers, has just been released, and while glimpses Pattinson’s charismatic and heart wrenching performance is sprinkled throughout the video, the biggest eye catcher are the visuals. Even in the darkest of New York nights (Queens to be exact), the diverse colors pop amidst the inevitable shadows that will descend upon these hapless siblings.

The Oscar-winning actress, who is this year’s jury president, led the march at the premiere of Girls of the Sun, the only female-directed film in competition at the festival. Other stars joining the march included fellow jury members Kristen Stewart and Lea Seydoux, as well as Marion Cotillard, Salma Hayek, Sofia Boutella, and director Patty Jenkins. “On these steps today stand 82 women representing the number of female directors who have climbed these stairs since the first edition of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946. In the same period 1688 male directors have climbed these very same stairs. In the 71 years of this world-renowned festival there have been 12 female heads of its juries. The prestigious Palme d’Or has been bestowed upon 71 male directors – too numerous to mention by name – but only two women – Jane Campion, who is with us in spirit, and Agnès Varda who stands with us today,” Cate said. She was joined by Agnes to continue the statement. “These facts are stark and undeniable. Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of our industry says otherwise. As women, we all face our own unique challenges, but we stand together on these stairs today as a symbol of our determination and commitment to progress. We are writers, producers, directors, actresses, cinematographers, talent agents, editors, distributors, sales agents and all involved in the cinematic arts. We stand in solidarity with women of all industries,” Cate and Agnes added (via THR). “We will expect our institutions to actively provide parity and transparency in their executive bodies and safe environments in which to work. We will expect our governments to make sure that the laws of equal pay for equal work are upheld. We will demand that our workplaces are diverse and equitable so that they can best reflect the world in which we actually live. A world that allows all of us behind and in front of the camera to thrive shoulder to shoulder with our male colleagues. We acknowledge all of the women and men who are standing for change. The stairs of our industry must be accessible to all. Let’s climb,” they concluded. FYI: Cate is wearing a Giorgio Armani Privé gown and Chopard jewelry......»»

Netflix Banned From Cannes Film Festival Competition - Find Out Why

I was presumptuous, they refused,” Cannes Film Festival exec Theirry Fremaux said in an interview (via THR). If you don’t know, last year, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja and Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories from Netflix were allowed in the competition. “The Netflix people loved the red carpet and would like to be present with other films. But they understand that the intransigence of their own model is now the opposite of ours,” he continued. Theirry added, “We have to take into account the existence of these powerful new players: Amazon, Netflix and maybe soon Apple. We’ll defend the image of a risk-prone festival, questioning the cinema, and we must be at the table every year.” “Cinema [still] triumphs everywhere even in this golden age of series. The history of cinema and the history of the internet are two different things,” he concluded. This year, Netflix will be allowed to screen movies at the festival, but they won’t be in competition for the coveted Palme d’Or prize. The Cannes Film Festival will kick off on May 8......»»
