Cannes Classics 2012 !

there's many reasons to go to Cannes but this is it for 2012 ! deci, de-a lungul timpului meu(8 editii), asta a fost cel mai bun moment Cannes, la Cannes Classics, cu momente unice (Giu la Testa/Duck You Sucker, Fingers cu James Toback, Corman's World cu Roger Corman si Peter Fonda, Rio Bravo cu Tarantino, Suspiria cu Dario Argento, Portocala mecanica cu Malcolm Mc Dowell, Psycho, Les Yeux Sans Visage, Red Shoes cu Scorsese, Wake up in Fright, El Topo si Santa Sangre cu Jodorowski si...Nick Nolte...) anul acesta insa Cannes Classics s-a intrecut pe sine: •The Film Foundation (USA), chaired by Martin Scorsese, will present a restored and reconstructed print of ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA by Sergio Leone (1984, 245'), with 25 minutes of additional scenes, based on the first cut by Sergio Leone in 1984. This restoration was requested by Martin Scorsese. The screening will be attended by Robert De Niro, Elizabeth McGovern, Jennifer Connelly, producer Arnon Milchan (which also has a small role in the film) and, of course, the Leone family.
•Pathé presents TESS (1979, 171') by Roman Polanski, in a restoration which he himself supervised and was "very impressed" by the laboratory work. Roman Polanski and Nastassja Kinski will be in attendance.
•To celebrate its centenary, the Hollywood studio Universal Pictures will present a restored print this emblematic film in the studio's recent history: JAWS by Steven Spielberg (1975, 124'). •The "Rescue the Hitchcock 9" project was launched by the National Archives of the British Film Institute (London) to save nine of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent films. THE RING (1927, 109') will be screened as a world premiere and a cine-concert with the musician Stephen Horne. •To mark the 50th anniversary of the production and release of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA by David Lean (1962, 222'), Sony-Columbia have made a new restoration of the film in 4K. •On the occasion of his presence in Cannes, the festival has asked Andrei Konchalovsky to present RUNAWAY TRAIN (1985, 111').A new print has been struck courtesy of Metro Goldwyn Mayer/Park Circus. *lista completa de la Cannes Classics aici no James Bond though :(
