Indeed, the film is one of our most anticipated of year. And now there's one more reason to get excited.

Alexandre Desplat Replaces Alberto Iglesias As Film's ComposerWhile it may seem like heavier fare, "God of Carnage," the Tony-winning play by Yasmina Reza which Roman Polanski's "Carnage" is based on, is actually a comedy first, with some dramatic elements dashed in. In fact, one of the film's stars, Kate Winslet, recently revealed that the work is so riotously funny that during a performance of the play on Broadway in 2009, she "actually peed my pants, and not just once." Not exactly what we were expecting but it's definitely something we can get on board with.

While the overblown Lars Von Trier-Nazi-gate has quickly raced to the top of the Cannes headlines, you might recall that earlier this week a guy named Terrence Malick finally unveiled his highly anticipated "The Tree Of Life." Even days later, for those bumping into each other around the Croisette, the first question seemed to be, "What did you think?" Well, in addition to our review from the festival we had a lot to more to say about the film that though a bit a uneven, still contains pockets of brilliance, awe-inspiring visuals and a thematic reach that simply is unlike anything being attempted in mainstream or indie cinema. In short, it's still an event and a film that must be experienced on a big screen. Part of the film's power comes from its extensive use of classical pieces as well the incorporation of Alexandre Desplat's stirring score.
