62e Cannes Film Festival - 2009

If it’s Hip, it’s Here has a great post taking a look at Cannes Film Festival, which is about to finish over the weekend… loads of films, some apparently extraordinary… others dividing the critics with controversy, just another year in Cannes~~~ If you really wanna know some of what’s been going on (celebrity-wise), head over to Lainey’s ramblings on what’s been going on there~

Anyway…

Check out some of the Hollywood classic photos after the break, including Ingrid Bergman, Natalie Wood, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, and Geraldine Chaplin.

Formerly known as “Push,” Precious was the winner of this year’s Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, and the Grand Jury Prize for Best Drama. Based on the novel Push by Sapphire, it tells the story of a teenage girl named Precious living in Harlem…

Movie looks good… PLUS! they say Mariah can act. LOL

TOKYO! in Hawaii~~

TOKYO! the 3-part-collaborative film by Joon-ho Bong, Leos Carax and Michel Gondry, has been (or will be) making rounds in theaters in Japan – I think. – And I won’t be able to watch this in a long~~~ LONG time, I’m pretty sure… but Hawaiian residents will be able to watch it at the Hawaii International Film Festival. [WTF? Louis Vuitton??] xD

TOKYO! will be showing on:
Saturday, Oct. 18th 2008 (obviously!) at 8 p.m. at Regal Dole Cannery.
Sunday, Oct. 19th 2008 at 4.30 p.m. at Regal Dole Cannery.

Get tickets, and check! Coz schedules could’ve changed during the time of this post and the day of showing~~

If you are a Yu Aoi fan, and live in Hawaii… or don’t mind spending the airfare to Hawaii, LOL – Go for it! Yu Aoi is featured in the Joon-ho Bong (The Host) directed/written segment title Shaking Tokyo, about a man who stays in his apartment very much like a hermit, trying to isolate himself from society, until he meets a pizza delivery girl (Yu) and there’s an earthquake… apparently.

TOKYO! - Shaking Tokyo - Yu Aoi

Yu Aoi faints on Shaking Tokyo, part of TOKYO!

Also making the rounds at the festival will be Kung Fu Kun (aka, Kung Fu Kid), which in itself isn’t much of a film I would watch… it is kinda funny at the beginning. However, it’s worth noting that there’s a small cameo with Juri Ueno! [click for some funny screencaps] ~ so if you’re a fan of Juri Ueno, you can get tickets for it for the festival!

How rocking is Tilda Swinton?? Very rocking indeed!

Apparently, she will begin a film fest of her own called The Ballerina Ballroom Cinema of Dreams, in her hometown of Nairn in Scotland. No biggies, no red carpet madness… just love for movies. Best part of it? Tickets for the films (apparently Tilda’s favorites, and some others) will be £3 (GBP) or… baked goodies (yes, baked goodies… yum), meaning home-made cookies, home-made cupcakes or anything home-made stuff u can come up with, I suppose. Hmm… home-made cupcakes~~~ my aunt should send her some. Tilda would love. xD

Yes, I had the best banana cake-yness just two days ago. My aunt makes the best home-made baked goodies.

Festival will run from August 15 to August 23, and you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable seats because apparently Tilda will be using beanbags. I hope they’re not like my cousin’s beanbag… because there are nice beanbags, but my cousin’s is not one of them~~
