As exciting as Cannes can be, it's sometimes dampened by the fact that the films currently being unveiled on the Mediterranean coast can take months or sometimes even more than a year to make it to U.S. shores. But fortunately, that isn't the case with everything; after the premiere of "Behind The Candelabra" this morning (read our review!), we only have to wait five days for it to screen on HBO, and coming up not too far behind is Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," which kicked off Un Certain Regard last week, and hits theaters in about three weeks.

Cannes Review: Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' A Mostly Empty Exercise In Excess

The Bling Ring
American cinema seems preoccupied with the emptiness of excess, at least in the first half of 2013. Baz Luhrmann luxuriates in the meaningless wealth of "The Great Gatsby," while Harmony Korine put his own twisted spin on the dark soul of the American dream in "Spring Breakers." And now comes Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," another look at the at-any-cost pursuit of celebrity and the worship of brand names, but it doesn't bring anything new to a conversation that seems to have run out of things to say.

The Bling Ring
Next week the Cannes Film Festival begins, and with it will come a lot of Very Serious Cinema about Important Things, featuring Deep Characters. But, for those looking to get a bit wild, Sofia Coppola will be opening the Un Certain Regard slate with "The Bling Ring," her take on a teen gang of celebrity thieves seeking fame and fortune, by hook or by crook. There will be partying, pole-dancing and all sorts of bad behavior, and as usual, Coppola has selected a pretty fine batch of tunes to go with it.

The Playlist's 15 Most Anticipated Indies Of The Summer
So perhaps the blockbusting sturm und drang of “Iron Man 3” has you slavering for more KA-BLAMMO, in which case our Most Anticipated Summer Blockbusters is the article for you. If, however, you're already getting a slight tension headache at the prospect of weeks upon interminable weeks of tentpole releases and the din of clashing opinions that attends the redistribution of billions of dollars of wealth, never fear. The gods of counterprogramming have been especially kind this year, and there's a wide selection of upcoming, smaller-budgeted, lesser-distributed gems in which the only things that collide are intersecting lives, the only ticking time bombs are repressed emotions, the only things that break are hearts, and the only things that blow up are grandiose expectations, right in some sad sack's face. You are also much more likely to get some full-on nudity.

Young people doing bad things seems to be a theme at the movies in 2013. During the spring we saw what happens when kids get rowdy, in "21 & Over" and Harmony Korine's cautionary tale of the American Dream, "Spring Breakers." The teen trouble will continue this summer as Sofia Coppola drops "The Bling Ring," which has a Cannes Film Festival premiere due in just a week or so. Some new images, a poster and the first review have just dropped online and all seem to point to good things.

Now freshly minted for the Cannes Film Festival, you can feel good about getting down and dirty with Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring." Yes, it's another movie about young girls trying to find themselves, only this time it isn't the suburban facade, international existential malaise, the empty pomp of royal life or soul-sucking Hollywood life her protagonist must navigate -- instead it's celebrity culture. Someone has has got it, the kids in "The Bling Ring" want it.

Last night, we got a particularly interesting eyeful from "The Bling Ring," with the first clip revealing Emma Watson's technique on a stripper pole, and today brings with it even more peeks at one of this summer's wilder offerings.

Hermione! Is that you? Emma Watson is all grown up, has left wizard school and is stealing from rich people and prancing around a stripper pole. You've changed....you're really, really changed....
