Report from the Director's Cup 2010

Recommended Posts

Halfway through the first stage of The Director's Cup. Chuck Jones (represented by Robin Hood Daffy) is being pulverized by Hou Hsiao-Hsien (Flowers of Shanghai). Aki Kaurismaki, Hayao Miyazaki, and Robert Bresson are cruising. Abbas Kiarostami, Jacques Tati, Lars von Trier, Éric Rohmer, and Krzysztof Kieślowski are involved in tight races. Barring dramatic second half comebacks, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Carl Theodor Dreyer, and Orson Welles (for some reason represented by Othello) will exit early. Andrei Tarkovsky seems not to have even qualified for the Cup--Soviet travel restrictions, perhaps? No Kurosawa either, or Terrence Malick, who meanders in a field of tall grass somewhere, wondering how Wagner would sound on vuvuzela.
