De Niro to Cannes: You Screenin' For Me?

"Huh? Huh? Faster than you. Saw you coming. I'm standing here. You make the movie. You make the movie. It's your movie. You screenin' for me? You screenin' for me? Then who the else are you screening to. I'm the only one here."


The Taxi Driver himself, Robert De Niro will head the jury for this summer's Cannes Film Festival. That honor recalls Taxi Driver's own Cannes win in 1976 and neatly coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Tribeca Film Festival this year. Jury members are TBA but the pool generally includes a couple gobsmackingly beautiful foreign actresses, a few directors and/or writers, and a couple key below the line giants. Last year, as you'll recall, Tim Burton and his Cannes jury gave their top prize to Apichatpong Weerathesakul's Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (my review).

Here's to De Niro being a better judge of international art cinema than he is of his own current projects!

He picks based on the pay check and nothing more.

Makes me think back to De Niro's role in "What Just Happened?" (Let's hope he doesn't have to judge a movie in which a dog is shot.)

This year's lineup could be *really* amazing. Hope to see Melancholia, A Dangerous Method, a Michelle Williams movie or two, One the Road, The Deep Blue Sea, etc.

Gosh, the actress race already sounds soooo good.
