"Sith" the Toast of Cannes

It looks like the tony Cannes Film Festival is not immune to the ubiquitous presence of George Lucas' Revenge of the Sith. The film premiered at the annual Cote D'or festival this Sunday.

In fact it appears in fact that Revenge is quite the toast of the festival this year. This can only be due to the thinly veiled digs at George W. Bush emerging from Sith. With giveaway lines from this snippet of dialogue between Annakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi like:

Annakin: You're either with me, or you're my enemy.

Obi-Wan: Only a Sith thinks in absolutes.

This anti-American, anti-imperialism sloganeering must explain why Sinead O'Connor showed up:

Yes, I think Mr. Scriblerus is on to something. After adopting her new "Sinead" look, it was reported that she was seen tearing up a picture of Yoda shouting "Fight the real enemy!"

Looks like, when laying on the eyeliner, she got some on her teeth.

The Pepsodent be with you.
