Chacun Son Cinema (2007)

This has been in my collection for quite some time. It was commissioned with 34 directors submitted 3-mins entries to commemorate the 60 years of Cannes Film Festival. With that premise, you know you will see many big names i.e. David Cronenberg, Lars von Trier, Tsai Ming Liang, Zhang Yi Mou, Ken Loach Gus van Sant, Wim Wenders, Walter Salles, Theo Angelopoulos, Oliver Assayas, Chen Kai Ge, Wong Kar Wai, Abbas Kiorastami, Jane Campion, Takeshi Kitano, Atom Egoyan, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the one by Roman Polanski (forget about his paedophile crime for a while) the most, it's pure gag and a funny one, suitable for the 3-mins instalment. The one by Lars von Trier also is memorable. And speaking of von Trier, you might find Inarritu's work is kinda similar to the one found in von Trier's Dancer in The Dark though Inarritu's version didn't fail to evoke emotions.

I was kinda looking forward to the Coen brother's work but it's not found in the DVD because the brothers were late to submit their entry. However, thanks to the YouTube, it's here.

With Josh Brolin at the helm and a familiar face, Dr. Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) from Grey's Anatomy.
