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.

First: He looks really good here. Love the suit! John looks so dressed down compared to the rest of them haha.

Second: I kinda figured it wouldn't go over great at Cannas. I know very little about the plot of the movie, I admit it, but from what I've heard its the type of movie you either love or hate. Same goes with Lee as a director. You either love him or hate him. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seemed like most people didn't like the way it was directed/how it placed out, is that right?

Something I noticed was a lot of people were calling it "kinky" and other stuff. So I guess it really is only for a certain audience.

But from what I've seen Zac and the rest of the cast are getting good reviews for their performance. Therefore I would not call this a "flop." Zac got to work with some amazing actors on this movie, actors he'd only dream about working with 5-6 years ago when he was still just a dancing/singing high school heartthrob. So yeah I don't exactly see it as a "flop" but maybe that's just me. I get the feeling he learned a lot when filming this movie.

I take it he'll be leaving Cannas soon then?

I totally agree with you! I do not think it's "flop". I think it is a normal reaction to the films of this genre and content. These movies may not like everything. But they outraged the people, and people talk about them a lot. It is scandalous films. And it often brings a box office success.
