Five Favorite Films with David Duchovny
David Duchovny became a bona fide pop culture star in the '90s with his wry, oddball performance as alien-chasing Special Agent Fox Mulder on TV's The X-Files -- though some may remember his even more eccentric FBI turn on Twin Peaks -- a role he reprized over several award-winning seasons and two big-screen films. Duchovny parlayed the success into his current starring role on the hit Californication, while on occasion finding time to appear in films like this week's Goats, in which he plays a bearded, stoned Arizona goat herder -- and quite convincingly, it should come as little surprise to learn. With the film opening in limited release this week we got a chance to sit down and chat with Duchovny, where we talked about his five favorite films.

Michael Haneke took Cannes' top honour tonight as his film, The White Ribbon, won the prestigious Palme d'Or. It's Haneke's third major Cannes prize but his first Palme d'Or. The director took to the stage to be presented with the award by jury president Isabelle Huppert, who starred in his 2001 film La Pianiste. Set in a small German town on the eve of the First World War, The White Ribbon is a tragic tale of life as conflict approaches. "Happiness is a rare thing, but this is a moment in my life when I am truly happy," Haneke told the Cannes audience.

Cannes 2009: The Tomato Report ? Thirst?s Vampires Descend on the Croisette
Park Chan-wook is best known for his exceptional Vengeance Trilogy -- Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance -- three blood-soaked, expertly drawn films that seemed to challenge all that had come before. When he announced plans to explore vampire mythology, he set genre hearts aflutter and the result of those plans is Thirst, which screened yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival.Korean mainstay Song Kang-ho plays Father Sang-hyun, a man conflicted by carnal feelings for his friend's wife and sent to Africa to participate in a medical experiment designed to eradicate a virus which causes painful boils on the skin and, eventually, death by blood loss. The antidote they're developing is ineffective; he dies and is brought back to life symptom-free.
