If I were at Cannes, I'd be dying to see…
Amour. Director Michael Haneke is among the best working today. He makes masterpieces. I'm hoping this is another.
Like Someone in Love. Again, an all-time favorite director: Abbas Kiarostami.
Cosmopolis. This is David Cronenberg's latest crack at science fiction. I'm a little skeptical of its casting of Robert Pattinson (of the Twilight series) as the protagonist, but the trailer promises an entertaining movie with all the Cronenberg traits we love.
In Another Country. Two Names: Hong Sang-soo and Isabelle Huppert. A much-acclaimed director and a powerful, moving actress.
Vous N'avez encore rein vu. Its director: Alain Resnais. 90 years old. Cinematic gem.
The Angels' Share. Ken Loach offers nothing but brilliant, emotionally-powerful, strong narratives. I have high hopes.
Moonrise Kingdom. Okay, so I'm just like everyone else, salivating over Wes Anderson's latest. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan. I loved Rushmore and since then have been mostly disappointed. But he always makes me laugh, even if the movie itself is not so good. Plus, I'd take any chance to see a movie with the likes of Francis McDormand, Ed Norton, and Bill Murray.
Rust and Bone. Director Jacques Audiard had a great debut with A Prophet, and Marion Cotillard is one of the most talented and watchable actresses working today.
On the Road. Not much interested in the cast (except the sexy Sam Riley from the Joy Division biopic), but see great potential in the directing of Walter Salles. I mostly am craving to see this because I've been waiting for it ever since I heard of its production five years ago. It was once upon a time my favorite book. Cliché, I know, but what are you going to do?
Mud. I don't know much about the story or the cast, but I loved director's Jeff Nicolas's last effort, Take Shelter.
