THE CLASS looks like French mumblecore.

Wouldn't put you in a charge of a sports book with your choices being made with a political and personal bias against the judge. You have a plate of crow to eat after your comments about Sean Penn.

Glenn Kenny

Yeah, exactly—Sean Penn is now a saint and a visionary because I wasn't able to correctly predict the Palme D'or winner. Fact is, his jury did exactly what his press conference statements implied it would do—privileged the "socially conscious" films over everything else in the competition. The most cynical among us could conceivably argue that it was only a happy coincidence that the socially conscious films in the competition were of high quality. I wouldn't go that far. But I'm gonna pass on the plate of crow as well.
