A hit at the Cannes Film Festival, which shut Sunday, can be a blip back home. As the glow of Cannes fades, here are the films from the festival that may sustain the buzz they earned on the Riviera:Hou Hsiao-hsien's martial arts drama "The Assassin" may seem like stuff of genre, but the Taiwanese filmmaker's latest – which won best director – bares little with the fast-paced action usually found in the genre. It was the most gorgeous film at Cannes. "The Lobster" and "Tale of Tales" – two films bound by a wry surrealism and John C. Reilly – vied for most bizarre of the Cannes competition.
