A Mighty Heart

My favourite of Michael Winterbottom's many, many films — the guy's so prolific he puts most other directors, save Soderbergh, to shame — are 24 Hour Party People, In This World and the criminally underrated The Claim. Hollywood has long been trying to get hold of him, but he's done it on his terms, getting an A-list star (Angelina Jolie) to star in one of his films, A Mighty Heart. I felt for sure this would be in competition at Cannes but they've given it an out of comp slot. Not sure the thinking behind that. Still, this trailer has only succeeded in whetting my appetite even more than before. Find it at
