van Sant does a Barton Fink

At the rather lacklustre 56th Cannes, Gus Van Sant scored double honours (Best Director and the Golden Palm) for Elephant, a docu-drama about high school violence that seems to owe a lot to the Columbine killings (last made famous by Michael Moore with Bowling for Columbine), beating out Lars von Trier's Dogville, starring the immensely talented Nicole Kidman. Personal note: Add both movies to ever-growing "to watch" list.
