Woody’s Walk of Fame

Woody Allen has been the man of the hour thus far at Cannes, and his latest film is generating more buzz than anything else on the screening list. But all the attention still won’t net Allen the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or – his film is being screened out of competition. Still, the French adulation for a filmmaker who is better known for his personal quirks than his movies in America appears to be well justified this time around, as Match Point is being hailed as Allen’s best work in decades.
