Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film FestivalCannes Film Festival, One of the stories I will tell at ccktail parties years from now will be about the time I interviewed Gary Oldman at the 2012 Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Oldman, the man who had played Sid Vicious, who was in “True Romance,” has been an icon in my twisted pop culture world for years and somehow he came over to talk with me about playing George Smiley in “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” a role for which he may very well receive an Oscar.

He said the role “fell out of the sky,” and called it a Christmas gift, but also said having read the novels and seen the original series, he knew the character George Smiley.

It was also Oldman’s first time at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and he seemed impressed by it, calling it “elite.”

“It’s a little bit like Cannes,” he said, comparing it to the famed French cinema fest.
