CANNES LINEUP

The Cannes lineup is in a bunch of places: here’s the link to Indiewire’s piece. Quick take: Inarritu’s Babel, Linklater’s Fast Food Nation, new films by Bruno Dumont, Pedro Almodovar, Ken Loach and Aki Kaurismaki, Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales (which we have a tiny preview of in the new issue — more when it comes out), and Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s follow-up to Distant all in Competition. Andrea Arnold’s Red Road the sole first feature in Competition. (I’m wondering what happened to Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain — Variety reported that it would be the festival “somewhere” just two weeks ago.) Don’t know a lot of the out-of-competition stuff except for the obvious (X3, the Al Gore doc, etc.). John Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus, his NYC-set full-on sex movie in the Official Selection at Midnight. A Scanner Darkly in Un Certain Regard along with Paris je t’aime, that big Paris-set anthology film that’s been in production for a while.
