My computer was running out of juice after hours in the Cannes Palais press room, and my headset was broken. But somehow, Kris Tapley, Guy Lodge and I reconvened for our first Oscar Talk podcast since Oscar season. When my battery ran out I managed to get on the Palais wifi on my iPhone and we continued to cover reaction to the Cannes selection, from "Moonrise Kingdom," "Rust and Bone," "Amour" and "On the Road" to "Lawless," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "No," and "Paperboy."

We'll be back again for a mid-summer report on July 20.
