Cronenberg and Egoyan talk Cannes
The Toronto Star talks to David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan about Cannes and their latest films, which are both in competition at the festival. Cronenberg's A History of Violence and Egoyan's Where the Truth Lies are each said to be the directors' most commerical films to date, although Cronenberg doesn't seem to mind that label, saying: "I pray that they're right about that" and going on to say that: "Our first reaction was that these movies are going to be too commercial for Cannes. We had to be talking into submitting them. But the programmers said to us, `We showed Shrek and Pulp Fiction won the Palme d'Or, so it's not like we don't show commercial movies.'" The Palme d'Or will be handed out May 22.
