One Response to “Cannes 2012 Line-Up Announced”

  1. movieman says:

    No PT Anderson and Malick isn’t surprising.
    The absence of Woody is, however.
    Very disappointed that the new Assayas and Wong Kar Wai films won’t be ready in time for Cannes.
    Maybe later in the 2012 festival season?

Feature films are suffering a kind of bad time right now, in my opinion, because the feature films that play in theaters are blockbusters. That seems to fill the theaters, but the art-house cinema is gone. If I made a feature film, it might play in L.A. and New York, a couple of other places, for a week in a little part of a cineplex, and then it would go who knows where. I built this to be on the big screen. It will be on a smaller screen, but it’s built for the big screen. You want a feature film to play on a big screen with big sound, and utilize all the best technology to make a world. It’s really tough after all that work to not get it in the theater. So I say that cable television is a new art house, and it’s good that it’s here.”
~ David Lynch

“The purpose of film isn’t to present the kindness of the world.”
~ Isabelle Huppert
