The Cannes Jury

May 12, 2005

I yesterday heard who’s in the jury for this year’s Cannes Festival. I haven’t seen too many of Javier Bardem’s movies, but I vividly remember his performance in Perdita Durango. Albeit entertaining and a lot of fun, it’s a wreck of a movie. I wonder if he’s now feeling similar to what Peter Jackson felt when he scored the director’s seat for Lord of the Rings. Considering that Jackson once made the probably worst B-movie of all times.
