Default Documentary about Robert Parker at Cannes

Mike Tommasi wrote in message news:

The film, Mondovino, also mentions Parker, but it is far from being a
"documentary focusing on Robert Parker", it is an indictment of the
wine business and a glorification of those that approach winemaking as
an art. I plan to see it this (long) weekend. I'll let you know.


The article certainly made it seem Parker-centric. I look forward to
hearing your report- Are you heading to the festival?

Default Documentary about Robert Parker at Cannes

Nah, it's really a professional trade show, there is not much to do
for visitors other than gawk at the stars. It is almost impossible to
get in to see the films. OTOH, the films are simultaneously released
throughout France, so you can see them in your own town more easily
than at Cannes.


Oh I know it! I have had to work the festival, and it can be a real
horror show. Part of my job was watching back-to-back films in the
market, which was great, but outside of that it's pretty much an awful
scene.
I did drive from there to St.Emilion, however.....
