Today was my last real day in Cannes and I had a very fun time!
In the early afternoon, I met up with Sarah to see Soderbergh’s Behind the Candelabra, which was great to see on a big screen (since it’s only playing on HBO in the U.S.). I thought Matt Damon and Michael Douglas were very convincing in the roles and the costumes/makeup were amazing!
Afterwards, I went to see Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive and loved it. I really don’t know if it was supposed to be, but I found the film absolutely hilarious. I mean, there were so many lines/references that made me laugh out loud and I way really the only one in the audience who laughed! I very much enjoyed all the actor’s performances — Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffery Wright. Also, the cinematography was very clever and the whole feel of the movie was a side of Jarmusch I haven’t seen before. I’d like to see it again once it’s released in the States!
Almost done packing. Off to London tomorrow!
