    Maybe his expectations were too high.

    After all, sex sells, right? He managed to convince Chloe Sevigny (sp?) to participate. Maybe “endure” would be a better term–the Times (of London–no link, sorry) overview sounded like the activity was graphic enough to be discomforting and long enough to be unendurable.

    Getting a name actress to do prOn ought to count for something with the Cannes crowd. Oh wait, the French started doing that a couple of years ago. It’s hard to be avant garde with last season’s fashions…
