Hurry Potter: Speed - Reading Critics Rush Reviews
( New York Times )

Spare a thought for the reviewers of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

The seventh and final book in the boy-wizard series was released at one minute past midnight, British time, on Saturday, and in the age ofinstant reaction and online blogs, newspapers wanted an opinion in time for editions the same morning.

The British version is 608 pages long, meaning critics were forced to race through the pages to meet their deadlines, as newspapers receivedno advance review copies.

スターとサプライズのカンヌ映画祭


Stars and Stunts Mark Cannes Festival
(New York Times)

The winning films were generally dark and somber, on topics like death, mourning and loss. The jury led by director Stephen Frears (''The Queen,'' ''Dangerous Liaisons'') offered up some surprises.

The grand prize, Cannes' No. 2 award, went to a film panned by many critics -- ''Mogari No Mori'' (The Mourning Forest) by Naomi Kawase of Japan, about an elderly man at a retirement home and a caretaker at the center and their attempts to overcome personal losses.
