Turkish movie Winter Sleep
(2014), a three-hour family saga, has won the Palme d'Or
at the Cannes Film Festival. I don't think I could sit through that, especially if it's in subtitles. The Best Actor prize went to Timothy Spall
for his role as grumpy old JMW Turner in Mike Leigh's critically acclaimed biopic of the British artist Mr Turner
(2014) made by Thin Man Films. Sadly, it was made for Film4. Can I be bothered to sit through all those commercials when it comes on TV? CLICK
