Paolo Sorrentino, Agnès Jaoui, Gabriel Yared, Fan Bingbing, President of the jury Pedro Almodovar, Jessica Chastain, Park Chan-wook, Maren Ade and Will Smith attend the Closing Ceremony of the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival.
I can’t really speak to female directors, but in regard to female characters, I’ve watched 20 films in 10 days for the first time and the one thing I take away is how the world views women, and for me the female characters represented were quite disturbing. There are some exceptions, but I was surprised about the representation of female characters on screen. I do hope that when we involve more female storytellers, that more of the women I know in my day-to-day life who have their agencies; that they don’t react to men around them, that they have their own points of views.
Sorry for being boring this week and loading you up with Fan Bingbing and Jessica Chastain but here we go one more time. I can’t help it, they’re the ones who keep looking great. Besides, if this bothers you Cannes is over, they probably will take a break for a bit. Anyway, Jessica Chastain continued to look good at the closing ceremony and I adore her. So she’s here. I don’t have anything deeper to say about it in the moment. Today I want to fuck Jessica Chastain.
