Exciting and New! Evidently, 13 writers out of 22, in string for the gold Palm (decreed on May 27) are new applicants! We judged last years' Palm Springs International Festival; and those on visit, blissfully view an average of 15 films!

It looks wonderful this year! And for those in France; don't miss it!

Wonderful French Films...
In fact, ha! There is a sixth American in competition, Julian Schnabel, who presents a full-length film which is regarded as French. Filmed biography of a (deceased Neo-expressionist Painter Jean-Michel Basquiat) Also, I believe, it is Schnabel's first time competition in Cannes.

Two other French films: “An old mistress” is adapted novel éponyme of Jules Barbey d' Aurevilly; and it is also the first appearance in competition of “scandalous” the Catherine Breillat. Christophe Honore, impétrant (also first appearance) for writer and playwright... The actresses Ludivine Sagnier and Chiara Mastroianni: “Love songs.”

But did little to place rank against the Artistic Film-Makers in the competition...

But, his curious attempts to Sponge off of the popularity of Republican US Presidential candidate, Sen. Thompson, in order to help film rank in this Int'l competition; was bloody obvious to all...
