Cannes 2013: 'The Congress' Review

An admirer of Waltz With Bashir, I was curious what director Ari Folman would do for an encore. The answer is The Congress, which made me think of Cloud Atlas and Mr. Nobody at different points during its overlong running time. Bear in mind I liked those films. By comparison, The Congress is endlessly ambitious but only rarely great. My review is up at Paste.
