and it has awarded a woman (Sofia Coppola for The Beguiled) the top director’s prize for only the second time in its long glittering history While there is much to celebrate in Coppola’s win (the first woman to win a directing Oscar was only seven years ago; Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker) the kneejerk reaction — a mix of welcome and confusion — to the Netflix entries proves that cinema will never be the same again Pedro Almodovar as the jury president of the Competition section and Cannes darling may have scoffed at the online giant but there was no denying that this festival belonged to Bong Joon-ho’s sci fi fantasy adventure Okja Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories has such famous stars as Dustin Thompson Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller in a year when no big-ticket Hollywood studio film played at Cannes Both films were produced by Netflix The significance of the Netflix invasion even if it is as short-lived as it appears right now cannot be emphasised enough Movies were always meant to be played out on giant screens It is only in the last decade that we have been able to see them on our laptops and phones because of such players like Netflix Amazon iTunes and so on But because big movies made with big money need to play safe we have been awash with anodyne sequels and prequels and franchises Yes an edition of the squelchy Pirates of the Caribbean has shown at Cannes because who doesn’t want to see the very sexy Johnny Depp stride up the Palais steps But a Pirates is invited for its red-carpet quotient not for its cinematic artistry The sharp edgy smart stuff the kind of art-house cinema that Cannes truly celebrates is no longer being looked upon favourably by the big studios because well where are the returns No visible ROI no studio moolah That is just the kind of film that Netflix has thrown its weight behind: a pro-environment anti-corporate film like Okja would never have found big-corporate-owned studio backing This is precisely the conundrum film production the world over is struggling with And that brings us to the thorny fact of the lack of Indian cinema in Cannes Actually the question misses the point A film festival like Cannes prides itself on its non-stop parade of glamourous beauties; the three or four female Indian stars head-turners—Aishwarya Rai Deepika Padukone Sonam Kapoor — are simply doing the Cannes thing providing glamour They are walking the red carpet on behalf of their sponsors not of their films Why Short answer: because the kind of films that these actresses star in are not on the Cannes selectors’ radars at all Could Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood outing in Baywatch have been shown at Cannes Potentially yes (anything can happen in out-of-competition) Had that happened it would have been part of the usual circus of starry photo-calls and a series of hand-on-waist poses The real question from a why-no-Indian-film-in competition perspective would be: would a Priyanka or Deepika or Sonam star in a film like Masaan (which showed in Un Certain Regard) or The Lunchbox (which was screened at the Critic’s Week) both films which won accolades at the festival That question doesn’t even arise because in India stars do not appear in arthouse films and those are precisely the films which are selected to compete in such festivals Till such time as that happens and who knows if and when that happens the buzz around India in Cannes will stay on the red carpet Take the beauteous Nicole Kidman’s example who won a special 70th anniversary Cannes prize She wowed the red carpet in her frills She also had four yes four films in the festival and won over hard-nosed critics in both The Beguiled and The Killing Of A Sacred Deer It’s pointless asking: why only the red carpet The pointed question should be: when do we start making more and more non-formulaic films with unique storylines and outstanding performances Style and substance That’s what it is about For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related News In West Bengal,already making bridal gowns and competition skating costumes,” Parineeti Chopra added, PHF secretary Ahmad said the national hockey body has asked the FIH to form an independent panel to look into the whole issue which led to the ouster of Pakistan from the Junior World Cup in Lucknow.
