Today on indieWIRE: Cannes kicked off, Oprah debuted her new doc club on OWN, and much more.

  • indieWIRE is on the scene in Cannes to report back on the 64th edition of the world's leading film festival. Critic Eric Kohn caught an advance press screening of the event's opening night film, Woody Allen's 'Midnight in Paris.' He liked what he saw. So did Anne Thompson, who called it Allen's best work since 'Deconstructing Harry' in 1997, in her feature interview with the funny man himself. Brian Brooks, meanwhile caught Allen speak at the official press conference following the initial press screening. Brooks also stuck around to witness Bernardo Bertolucci (in town to pick up an honorary Palme d'Or) prove that he's still in the game, and to watch the Cannes jury address the worldwide press.
