  Cannes International Film Festival - News - Times Topics - The New York Times
The critics in Cannes are a notoriously contentious bunch, but something close to a consensus has formed that this festival has new vitality at 60.
By MANOHLA DARGIS and A. The festival is marking its 60th incarnation with a burst of nostalgic self-congratulation.
Scott, the chief film critic for The Times, said that Michael Moore's win of the top prize at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival was stunning because the festival has been historically unfriendly to non-fiction work.

From the balcony of the Palais de Festival at the Cannes Film Festival, French union chants and speeches are often audible.
However, none of the turbulent moments from the festival’s history are reoccurring, as films continue to screen despite the peaceful hubbub outside—the strikers were placated with a walk down the red carpet and expressions of solidarity from some filmmakers, although they’re still fighting the fight.

The films that were perennial Z Channel favorites are shown in clip form throughout the movie; as a result, I spent a great deal of the film’s running time jotting down a list of movies it made me want to see instead of taking notes on the film.
This all is not to imply that it is a film strictly about the channel, though; most of the meat of the film is made up in the examination of the eccentric, manic-depressive Harvey, who wound up murdering his wife and committing suicide before he was 40.
All of the film’s hype was deserved: I saw the film late at night and it was my sixth film of the day, and it still affected me heavily and left me thinking about it while lesser films were on the screen in front of me for days to come.

Exceptions to these rules are early classic films, such as those produced by Toei Animation up to the mid 1960s, and recent big budget films, such as those produced by the enormously successful Studio Ghibli.
Films, which are generally released in theaters, represent the highest budgets and generally the highest video quality.
Other types of films include compilation movies, which are television episodes edited together and presented in theaters for various reasons, and are hence a concentrated form of a television serial.

 village voice > film > Fahrenheit 9/11 by J. Hoberman
As I reported from Cannes, Fahrenheit 9/11 is effective in undermining the administration's rationale for invading Iraq, provocative in linking the House of Bush to the House of Saud (and bin Laden), and unrelenting in its caustic critique of official mistruths.
Indeed, the film's long opening movement, which segues from the stolen election of 2000 and Bush's 2001 summer vacation through the events of 9-11 and the cowboy invasion of Afghanistan to dwell on the oil politics uniting the Bushies with the Saudis, is the strongest filmmaking of Moore's career.
In Cannes, where locals express incredulity at learning that, hardly a marginalized scribbler of samizdat, Moore is actually one of America's bestselling authors, Fahrenheit 9/11 was wildly overpraised as filmmaking.

 Readjusting Perspective: The 57th Cannes Film Festival
There is general consensus that the 2004 Cannes Film Festival represented a return to form after last year's rather miserable outing (although it certainly hadn't been the fiasco of mythic proportions exaggerated reports suggested).
But whereas in Moore's film I often had the feeling he was just randomly throwing items onscreen that could have been presented more profitably in a coherent manner (it is the core of his unabashedly populist aesthetic, always going for the emotion, not the intellect), in 2046 the kaleidoscopic approach makes thematic sense.
Readjusting the skewed perspective of Cannes with its hard-won, unbiased, patient and curious humanism, 10ème chambre was probably the greatest film of the festival.

With an insider's access and an artist's eye, Nossiter weaves together multiple family and multi-generational sagas, and uncovers a complex tapestry of rivalries, alliances, conflicts, and conspiracies - all stemming from the production, distribution and consumption of one of the oldest, most respected and still affordable luxuries remaining.
Juxtaposing artisanal wine growers with multi-national conglomerates, and peasants with billionaires, the film gives tapestry to those who create, critique, and do commerce in wine, offering up a surprisingly prismatic, varied and sometimes controversial glimpse into something everyone enjoys but few people know much about.
