Velvet Goldmine a hit at Cannes
“Velvet Goldmine” premiered at Cannes on May 22 to critical acclaim. Jonathan is over at Cannes and had this to say: “The film is about a freshness and a spring, because the 1970s was a liberal time. What I do have is a recollection of the 1990s which is also a liberal time because we’ve come through a depression and we feel fresh and young again.”
The news wire Reuters had this to say about the film: “The film’s brilliant rendering of the atmosphere of those years of excess and decadence has put Haynes among the front-runners for the Golden Palm, the festival’s top prize, to be awarded Sunday.” The film is due for release in the US and Europe this coming fall.
