John McGrath is a restaurateur turned executive chef, author and an active film critic who has reported for radio, television and print media for more than 16 years. Author of Watch This Movie, a collection of reviews of his top 1000 films, John is also a veteran of seven Cannes Film Festivals. His last book It's All Part of the Alpine Experience took a behind the scenes look at life as a seasonaire in the world's most famous ski resort, Chamonix Mont Blanc. Cannes Confidential reveals everything there is to know about the legendary Cannes Film Festival but too afraid to ask. No one has previously attempted taking such an insider's look at the cinema cognoscenti, the hype, the Riviera underworld and the glitz, glamour, sleaze, sex and debauchery that intermingles with the lifestyles of the rich and famous and is the real life blood of the famous festival.
