The Cannes Film Festival 2013 has now come to a close with jury president Steven Spielberg awarding Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue Is The Warmest Colour The Palme D’Or.  The film, which has gained much attention due to its graphic lesbian sex scene, is a teenage coming of age love story starring newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos and Sister and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol actress Lea Seydoux.  At three hours long and including explicit sex scenes many thought it was likely to prove too risqué to be awarded the main prize but Spielberg and the jury thought otherwise.  Elsewhere, The Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis won the Grand Prix, Berenice Bejo won Best Actress for The Past while Bruce Dern took home Best Actor for his role in Alexander Payne’s Nebraska.  Source – The Cannes Film Festival 2013

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email:
