INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is way over 2 hours! Plus info on Park Chan Wook’s THRIST and Bong Joon Ho’s MOTHER

The Cannes Film Festival website has been updated with a full listing of all the films playing this year – along with the running time of each film.


As far as I know, this is the first I’ve heard of the running times for a lot of these movies. And when you’re talking about the quality of films premiering at this year’s Festival, I know you want to see them.



The big info is that Quentin Tarantino’s newest film “Inglourious Basterds” is 2 hours and 40 minutes! While some might think this is too long, I say fucking awesome! This is the film I’m most excited to see, and I love that it’s going to be an extended and wild ride.


Some of the other highlights include:



Bong Joon Ho’s next film “Mother”, which clocks in at 2h10


Ang Lee’s latest “Taking Woodstock” is 1h50


Michael Haneke’s “The White Ribbon” is 2h24


Park Chan Wook’s “Thrist” is 2h13


And Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” is 2h02



Of course this is just a few of the films, so here are the rest and the running times. And I’ve joined the ever growing world of Twitter.
