Cannes Begins: Iñárritu and His Jury Arrive

by Nathaniel R

The 72nd edition of the world's most famous festival has officially begun.We'll try to bring you comprehensive daily coverage by astral projecting ourselves across the ocean (i.e.watching online videos from France and following critics on Twitter).Earlier today the president of this year's main jury Alejandro González Iñárritu arrived with his gender-balanced fellow jurors in tow (or "classmates,"as Maimouna N'Diaye so charmingly put it in the preference conference)...
