The First 3 Days: Iñarritu Goes VR, Focus Features Tease And More [Cannes Report]

One thing that non-Cannesgoers might not realize about this crazy festival is that underlying the stew of emotions served up by the programming, the one constant is guilt: every moment not spent either watching a film or writing about a film comes freighted with a low-level background hum of remorse, with a side order of […]
