Wednesday in Cannes the stars were out for two different premieres. Sharon Stone joined Madonna (who had visible nipples) and Guy Ritchie at the premiere of "I Am Because We Are," the material mom's documentary on Malawi. More anticipated and drawing more stars than her movie, however, was the premiere of Steven Soderbergh's 4 1/2 hour "Che," starring Oscar winner Benicio del Toro. Unfortunately, Variety did not like the film, and said, "Che seems diminished by the way he's portrayed here... [the film as shown in Cannes] is a commercial impossibility." Fox called it a "mess."
Update: Soderbergh explained and defended the film in a Thursday press conference.
