Cute, controversial Cannes: five must-see movies
Choosing the five films at Cannes that you most want to see is like choosing the five frankfurters at a hot-dog-eating contest that you most want to eat. The festival is a binge on movies, and any personal preferences you may have in the run-up soon fade in the greasy-fingered dash from one screening room to the next.
That said, it’s impossible to look over the 53 new films in this year’s official selection, plus around the same number in the various sidebars, and not pick out a few must-sees. So here are my five.
1. INSIDE OUT
2. THE TALE OF TALES
4. CEMETERY OF SPLENDOUR
