Sean Penn Is the President of Cannes!

While he wasn't leading the revolution against France's smoking ban, Sean Penn, this year's president of the Cannes Film Festival jury, had some mixed up words for another (would be) president. Penn, who has been an imaginative critic of George W. Bush and his soiled blood soaked underwear, gave Barack Obama both an endorsement and a disparagement all the way from glamorous Cannes, France.

He offered his opinion:

"I’m certainly endorsing the excitement and hope that Barack Obama is inspiring." Penn then criticized Obama for “some phenomenally unconstitutional and inhuman votes on his part. [. . .] I hope that he will understand, if he is the nominee, the dangerous disillusionment that will happen if he doesn’t become a greater man than he has ever been.”

Penn, who will lead in selecting the winner of the Palm D'Or, also acknowledged that film is inherently connected to current events. On this issue, he said:

"One way or another, when we select the Palme d'Or winner, I think we are going to feel very confident that the film-maker who made the film is very aware of the times in which he or she lives."

Do you agree that people will inevitably be disappointed with Obama? Are the best films those that are in touch with the times, or those that let us escape reality? Does Sean Penn have any idea what he is talking about?
