"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Cannes winds down.What's winning the Palme?

by Nathaniel R

Margot Robbie at Cannes for "Once Upon a Time in..."There are 21 titles competing for the Palme d'Or at Cannes this year.We've already talked about seven titles.Pedro Almodovar'sPain & Glory(Spain)is a potential prize winner (and a legit Oscar hopeful) andMati Diop'sAtlantique(France/Senegal),and Celine Sciamma'sPortrait of a Lady on Fire(France)could be the key films in ensuring prizes to female directors (something Cannes has historically been bad at) since they were both extremely well-received.

In addition to those three potential Palme d'Or or Best Director winners (Cannes most important prizes),Ladj Ly's contemporary French dramaLes Misérablesand Kleber Mendonça Filho's Brazilian oddityBacurauare also threats for jury love.Diao Yinan'sThe Wild Goose LakeandJim Jarmusch'sThe Dead Don't Diegot decent notices but we don't expect prizes there.

With Cannes ending this weekend we've run out of time so here are quick notes on responses to the other 14 Competition titlesand our predictions after the jump...

This year's poster features Agnes Varda climbing on an assistant for a shot.The lineup for the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival has been unveiled.19 films will compete for the Palme d'Or and 16 films will compete in the secondary lineup Un Certain Regard (we'll get to those in a bit) though those numbers might expand should they add a couple more entries to either program.They usually do that after the official unveiling.Mexico's Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Birdman) and Lebanon's Nadine Labaki (Capernaum) will preside over the Competition and Un Certain Regard juries,respectively.

COMPETITION

These films are the ones gunning for the Palme d'Or.There are four female directors in the competition lineup and two black directors both of which are way more than usual at Cannes...
