Here's the "can't miss" hit of the summer: Depardieu brings dance hall singer into spotlight
  • Gerard Depardieu shows off his vocal skills as a lonely dance hall singer in a new French film that paints a nostalgic picture of a profession threatened by DJs and karaoke bars. In "The Singer," aging entertainer Alain Moreau (Depardieu) wins the hearts of pensioners and middle-aged ladies with heart-rending songs he performs at village discos, homes for the elderly and the local frog festival. Moreau sings lines such as "I would do all for a flirt with you" and "Live your life to the fullest!" -- then goes home to his empty house, where a juke box, a goat and a self-tanning machine are his only companions.
  • I wonder if he can take the goat to the frog festival.
  • And don't miss the picture of Depardieu, who's looking better than ever - remarkably fat and unkempt, even by his own admittedly lax standards. Hell, he looks fat and unkempt even by Harry Knowles's standards! This guy could play Jabba the Hutt without make-up!

An interview with William Hung
  • Most singers are better when they sing than when they talk. The Hunger is no exception. Of course if Pavarotti talks worse than he sings, it's because he has a high bar to clear.

To the best of my knowledge, this is a real product: Worship at every meal with Jesus Pan. "Imagine serving Heavenly Hotcakes at the next church breakfast." As "featured on Tonight Show with Jay Leno"

X-Men 3 opens humungous!
  • Oh, not so bad. Nothing worth mentioning. Only the biggest fucking Friday in the history of the world!
  • It was the third best day in cinema history, behind Revenge of the Sith's Thursday opening, and Shrek 2's first Saturday. It beat the former record Friday by a whopping 10%!

Latin American directors cause last-minute Cannes stir
  • Two films from Latin America caused a late stir at Cannes. "Mexican director Guillermo del Toro's fantasy, Pan's Labyrinth, is about a girl in fascist-era Spain who believes she is the reincarnated princess of a magical underworld kingdom. Buenos Aires 1977, by Israel Adrian Caetano, is based on the true story of four young men who escaped from their torturers during Argentina's military dictatorship. Latin American directors have had a particularly strong showing this year at Cannes, which concludes with the awards ceremony Sunday. Another movie by a Mexican director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel, is considered a strong prize contender.
  • NOTE: the author of the article meant "underworld" in the original sense of "underground," not in the modern sense of "criminal."

Clerks 2 receives an 8-minute standing ovation at Cannes!!!
  • Congratulations to Kevin! Every movie buff that I know is desperate for a good film comedy, since there has been a long drought since The Wedding Crashers and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. It appears that Miramax will have a big hit on its hands.
  • Harvey Weinstein now looks like a genius for moving Clerks 2 up to the July 21 time slot, thus beating Talladega Nights into the theaters by two weeks.
