‘Tree of Life’ Wins Palme d’Or in Cannes

‘Tree of Life’ Wins Palme d’Or in Cannes – indieWIRE.

This year’s Cannes Film Festival came and went,with many films(including THE WICKER TREE)playing and Pedro Almordovar’s THE SKIN I LIVE IN causing a major uproar overs its themes of rape,revenge,skin experiements,sex changes,and a mad vengeful doctor making a rapist his bitch(literally),and filmmaker Lars von Triers made a controversial Nazi comments that got him banned from Cannes(yet Joy Behar made a comical but tasteless Nazi comment about Arnold Schwarzenegger on her Tv show,yet didn’t get sued nor suspended off of TV).

But the one thing that happened is that Terrence Marrick’s latest film TREE OF LIFE(starring Brad Pitt)won Canne’s top award of the Palme d’Or,their equalient of the U.S.’s Best Picture Oscar,making this the film for all of the major mainstream critics to look out for.

Otherwise,Kirsten Durst won Best Actress for her role in von Triers’ latest film,amid plenty of other winners,making this another successful year for Cannes.

It’s A Pretty Sad Weekend At The Box Office When The Latest PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Film,BRIDEMAIDS,and FAST FIVE All Strongly Dominate The Box Office’s Top Spots  😦 😦
