    What a pleasant surprise. It is nice to shift the focus away from Hollywood actors and give recognition to other parts of the world. Yes, Hollywood, there is a whole other world out there besides you.

    This is such a stupid comment from you, Perez. Of course no "A-list" celebrity went home with a price because being an "A-list" celebrity doesn't mean you are talented. The Cannes Film Festival is giving a presence to a different kind of cinema and shifting away from commercial and industrial movies you Americans are so fond of. Cannes is about the essence of cinema. And if you were just a bit cultivated, Perez, you would consider Michael Haneke as an "A-list" director because he does wonderful movies who are focusing on real people and the complex reality of life. This year, Nani Moretti and his Jury were really keen at awarding films who reflect the actual society with its problems and social contexts. Hollywood did amazing movies but there is a whole world outside which does wonderful movies without "A-list" stars and a million dollars budget.

    Good luck getting them distributed in the US. I love foreign and independent films a lot but due to mobility issues I can no longer go to places like the Laemme Theater in Santa Monica for example. The AMC chain somewhat close to where I love does have some indie and foreign movies.
