More from Cannes: Quentin Tarantino and his fellow jurors have taken the unprecented step of publicly defending their selection of Fahrenheit 9/11 as the winner of the Palm d’Or. QT insists that the award was about filmmaking, not politics. Very cool of him. I hope the Australian distributor gets the film out here soon. (The funniest part of that article is the sidebar story that mentions how Tarantino has been doing Irma P. Hall’s voice from The Ladykillers for three days. What a geek!)
