Paperboy photocall in Cannes  


Note: a post with screening feedback/reviews, the press conference video (if you don't want to wait, you can watch it at the festival site here in the meantime) and favorites will follow later. Just as a heads-up though, while some like the movie but the feedback is mostly quite negative.

Regarding "artistic flops", I can add a general comment here. Critics, and even the Zac Worshippers here, may consider particular movies to be flops, mistakes, underperformers, etc. But I suspect that Zac doesn't think exclusively in those terms (critical approval, box office success). Reading between the lines of his comments over the years, I think he is probably very satisfied with each of his choices. He wants to test himself as an actor in an incremental way, he wants to work with interesting directors who'll teach him something, and he relishes the risk of failure (he even once explained that he considered Hairspray a risky choice because it could have been a complete flop, and that really perked his interest). So don't assume that The Zefron cares about the public response to each of his movies in the same way that we do. Each of his movies has been a success in his terms.
