Cannes't Do

On the eve of the Cannes Film Festival, John Anderson takes a look at the phenomenally large amount of work that Palme d'Or winners Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne put into making their seemingly artless, effortless films.

And he looks at the phenomenally small amount of money Palme d'Or winners seem to make from US theatrical distribution. [What he doesn't look at, though, is how much films like this will be dependent on DVD sales and rentals to make their actual US money. I thought that DVD was the new Box Office for indie/foreign/specialty films.]

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
