“over that mountain to see all the other mountains” – more Tarantino Cannes interviews
Suspense is increasing. Wednesday morning will be the first time Inglourious Basterds will be shown to insiders, critics and others, and Wednesday night will be the big premiere. The Hollywood Reporter, not exactly this website’s favorite source of movie news by the way (but neither is Variety), scored a pretty nice interview with our auteur where he talks a bit about the movie and what it means to him, and how Cannes is such a great place
What’s great about Cannes is that when you’re here, you’re in this world where international cinema is all that matters. And all the world media is here, and they’re all judging the film at the same time, and they’re waking up at 8:30 (a.m.) to see the new Johnnie To or the new movie of the guy who directed “The Host. It’s a lot different than just this lazy thing where they’re in New York or L.A. and they’re going to go see this movie at noon.
Head over to THR to read the full interview, and then for you insiders out there, also read their piece on french casting director Olivier Carbone, the maverick talent scout who’s responsible for such up-and-coming greats as Melanie Laurent and Denis Menochet, two names you’re gonna hear about a lot more in the coming weeks and months.
