Jarmusch x2 Tops Cannes 2016 Competition Lineup

Adam Driver in Paterson

Announced this morning, this year’s Cannes slate brings forth the expected pack of established masters in Competition, with some unexpected outliers sprinkled in per usual (Brillante Mendoza!). You’ll want to turn to David Hudson for a thorough annotation of everything known about these films to date. (Annual gender equity note: three out of 20 films in competition are directed by women.) A special congratulations to overachiever Jim Jarmusch for having two titles at Cannes: the Adam Driver drama (?) Paterson in Competition, and Gimme Anger, a documentary on The Stooges.
