Half-way through the 64th Cannes Film Festival, my personal favourite films are Terrence Malick's audacious and visually awe-inspiring The Tree of Life, and Scottish director Lynne Ramsay's disturbing psychological horror movie, We Need To Talk About Kevin.
Prize for the grimmest film so far goes to the Australian real-life drama Snowtown, about a serial killer in Adelaide in the 1990s. The film's uncompromising approach to its subject matter had people squirming in their seats and leaving the cinema in disgust.
Best interviewees so far include the Olsen twins' younger sibling Elizabeth, and the female lead of The Tree of Life and apocalyptic thriller Take Shelter, Jessica Chastain.
