Second week into Cannes and I see the festival website still cannot show latest slideshow pics or videos – how utterly pathetic. This more than anything demonstrates the ongoing failure of the film world’s premier event to come to terms with the internet, still more comfortable with inkies and their ancient historical status obsessions.
For a real laugh, sample Cannes’ official blog - read, if you can stay awake, some desultory entries, one featuring the “Cannes Cam” (a camera focused on the red carpet up to the Palais – fascinating), no comments, no goss, nuffink.
Latest entry reads: “So, people waiting to get into tonite's 'midnite movie' - the concert film 'U2 3D' were pretty awed to see the band not only walking up the red carpet, but then taking their instruments and starting to play! Overall, a very nice 'birthday suprise' for Festival's 60th anniversay [sic].”
Mmmmmm, my clit's not twitching.
