Guy Pearce: Celebs Rumors


David Cronenberg’s ‘The Shrouds,’ About a Corpse-Obsessed Widow, Gets Polite 3.5-Minute Standing Ovation at Cannes

Ellise Shafer David Cronenberg’s “The Shrouds,” the horror auteur’s latest film about a widow who invents technology to see inside his late wife’s grave, received a 3.5-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere on Monday night. The crowd showed their respect for Cronenberg with the applause, but it was nowhere near rapturous as audience members digested the film, which is a departure from Cronenberg’s usual out-of-the-box body horror. Instead, “The Shrouds” is a thoughtful exploration of grief, and though there are several gross-out moments, the film relies on emotion more than anything.
