Cannes Film Festival 2015 Day 7: Gloomy Times

A Cannes film festival without an animated movie wouldn’t be the same and this year is no exception, Pixar bringing us its latest production Inside out. The same could also be said about thrillers, Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario following previous years’ entries such as Killing The Softly, We Own the Night and Captives. Somewhat less pompous than its predecessors, Sicario creates a tense experience, supported by a beautiful, cold photography and a chilling electro-acoustic soundtrack. The movie stars Benicio Del Toro (photo below) as a cold-blooded killer, and Josh Brolin providing comedy relief.

Tonight’s screening of Jia Zhangke’s Mountains may depart was plagued by technical difficulties, from the absence of subtitles to onscreen freezing. At least, it allowed to spice things up, this film about the evolution of the Chinese society being far to be a joyful ride.
