The Palme d'Or is cinema's answer to the papal conclave.
One of the great pleasures of this year's Cannes Film Festival has been a momentary close-up on Julianne Moore's face in David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars."
For the past year, Robert Pattinson has been trying to disappear. He says he's been actively avoiding having his photo taken, trying to erase a tabloid persona.
The Associated Press is all over the Cannes Film Festival - from its glitzy premieres to the celeb parties and quirky moments in between. Here's what reporters have seen and heard:
Robert Pattinson is making quite a surprising reputation for himself - as the actor who has sex in cars on film.
"Maps to the Stars" is David Cronenberg's nightmarish, hyper-real tale of vanity, greed and family dysfunction in Hollywood. But it may touch a raw nerve for some in the movie industry.
David Cronenberg deconstructs Hollywood, Tommy Lee Jones goes Western, and reclusive New Wave legend Jean-Luc Godard returns in 3-D in films competing for top honors at next month's Cannes Film Festival.

Robert Pattinson was nearing the end of shooting the last "Twilight" film, concluding a chapter of his life that had picked him out of near obscurity and was preparing to spit him out ... where exactly? "Twilight" had made him extravagantly famous, but his next steps were entirely uncertain.
Lifeless, stagey and lacking a palpable subversive pulse despite the ready opportunities offered by the material, "Cosmopolis" is a stillborn adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel that will initially attract some Robert Pattinson fans but will be widely met with audience indifference.
Robert Pattinson has gone from playing a vampire to depicting another kind of bloodsucker — a billionaire financier whose world crumbles in the course of a nightmarish cross-town drive in "Cosmopolis."
There was Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman, red carpet glamour and a crop of new Academy Award contenders _ but this was also the year the global financial crisis exploded onto movie screens at Cannes.

Going back to what he does best, David Cronenberg takes a visceral day-trip inside the cushioned limousine of a tycoon who cares little for the bloody, populist riots that explode outside his car in "Cosmopolis."
In the movie "Cosmopolis," director David Cronenberg goes on a visceral day-trip inside the limousine of a tycoon _ who cares little for bloody, populist riots taking place outside his car.
Cronenberg added with a smirk: "There's nothing repulsive in the movie business.
"Both(are) like 7s. I'm joking. . Obviously Julianne. It was a wonderful experience. It was extremely sweaty," he said.
