For our final salvo from the Riviera, we welcome guest Manohla Dargis, critic for the New York Times, for a wrap-up of all the festival goings-on. Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold sat down with Dargis to discuss a Cannes line-up that was widely considered a success. The two run through their highlights of the festival, including Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’s phantasmagorical Bacurau, the fascinating flawed jewel that is Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, and Mounia Meddour’s Algerian ’90s coming-of-age drama Papicha. They also discuss the lowlights, including Abdellatif Kechiche’s much maligned three-and-a-half-hour ogle Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo. Other topics include TV Westerns of the ’60s and ’70s, movie stars and press junkets, the politics of what plays in competition, and much more.
