Ari Folman’s movie ‘The Congress’ is a brilliant spectacle, an exhilarating visual extravaganza and a slapdash thought experiment. It is also unlike anything Ezra Glinter has ever seen.
Although Ari Folman’s “The Congress” didn’t make the main competition at the upcoming Cannes International Film Festival, it will open the Director’s Fortnight sidebar, the festival announced yesterday. The film is reported to be part-animated and part-live action, and stars Robin Wright, Paul Giamatti, Jon Hamm and Harvey Keitel, among others.
The Cannes International Film Festival announced the lineup for its main competition today, and the film I was hoping for most isn’t there.
