May 20, 2023

Courtesy of Cannes Film FestivalAttending a gala screening at the Cannes Film Festival is a strange experience. I also was aware that Glazer, known for films like Birth and Sexy Beast, makes strange and exciting work that defy expectations. The Zone of Interest is being hailed as the first great movie to emerge from this year's Cannes and for good reason. It's a disturbing and brilliant film that challenges what it means to make a Holocaust movie. He kept his distance, watching from a trailer.
