Cannes Gets Bullwhipped
You say, "Stop kicking ass," like I can turn it off.
Despite a festival poster renouncing the “blind glamour” of the Cannes film festival in recent years and an overwhelming proportion of dark and cautionary films, the festival's most reported-on happening was the crowd cheering for “Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
Friggin good. I have no desire to understand the Shatila massacres during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. I don’t really care about Che Guevara other than that the shirts hipsters wear (ironically or otherwise) bother me.
What do I care about? Oh, I don’t know, bullwhipping Nazis so long as there is witty banter both before and after the crack of the whip. I also like treasure, and explosions. Agreed? Good, if you hadn’t I probably would’ve just shot you in the chest (in a market in Marrakesh).
