Woody Allen @ Cannes (2010)

I know I said I wouldn’t geek out too much about Cannes this year, but, just wanted to post some pics of my boy (or should I say, old man) Woody Allen, who premiered his 41st motion picture over the weekend at the festival. Forty-one movies!? Wow, even if half of them suck ass, that is some batting record, man…

Entitled “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger”, Allen’s latest stars Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Gemma Jones and “Slumdog Millionaire” hottie, Freida Pinto. And like several of the Woodman’s recent flicks, this one was shot in London, so, here’s hoping it’s more like “Match Point” than his God-awful “Cassandra’s Dream”. Urgh…that movie suuuuucked!

Another interesting thing I read today is that Allen’s movies always screen out of competition at Cannes at his request. Cool, huh? I mean, say what you will about the dude, that is a very non-Hollywood thing to do…so, rock on Woody!
