Torn between rooting for Hausner and Porumboiu. If they want to give it as a career award I hope it goes to Desplechin.

Frederik B, Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:10 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I'm always shit at guessing these but I don't see it going to one of the Americans (or Canadian) this year

Simon H., Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:12 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I think most people are shit at guessing these, which is why it's fun.

In that vein, I'm guessing Ken Loach has it.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:20 (three weeks ago) Permalink

god help me for rooting against the Trot but if he wins again I'm gonna stop paying attention altogether

Simon H., Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:21 (three weeks ago) Permalink

It's always impossible to guess what will win, though in this case we know that since Iñarittu is head of the jury, it will undoubtedly be shit.

Frederik B, Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:53 (three weeks ago) Permalink

that's not guaranteed, again let's recall Burton/Boonmee

Simon H., Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:54 (three weeks ago) Permalink

this is exceptionally cynical but I could see him trying to win cred by picking the Diop

Simon H., Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:56 (three weeks ago) Permalink

xp I'm convinced it was the fish coitus that sealed the deal on that one.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 2 May 2019 13:56 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Burton >>>>>>> Iñarittu. But who knows, perhaps there won't be any bad movies he can give it to?


Frederik B, Thursday, 2 May 2019 14:05 (three weeks ago) Permalink

No idea, but I’m happy to learn that there is a new Sachs on the way.

Timothée Charalambides (cryptosicko), Thursday, 2 May 2019 14:27 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I still don't actually believe the Jim Jarmusch zombie movie is for real. Too on the nose tbh.

This is a shit title.

Acting Crazy (Instrumental) (jed_), Thursday, 2 May 2019 15:08 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I liked Filho’s Aquarius, and Bacurau by Filho and Dornelles sounds really interesting

I wish Eggers’ The Lighthouse had made it into competition. I think it’s in Directors’ Fortnight

Dan S, Thursday, 2 May 2019 15:20 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Filho's Neighboring Sounds might be even better!

Frederik B, Thursday, 2 May 2019 15:26 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Also in Directors' Fortnight that I kinda wish was in the competition, Bertrand Bonello's Zombi Child. At Jarmusch's expense, even!

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 2 May 2019 15:34 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Adding to films that should have been in main competition: From UCR: Albert Serra's 'Freedom', Oliver Laxe's 'A Sun That Never Sets' and Bruno Dumont's 'Jeanne'. From Quinzaine there's Lav Diaz' 'The Halt' of course, but also Shahrbanoo Sadat's 'The Orphanage' and J-P Valkeapää's 'Dogs Don't Wear Pants'. And I would of course have 'A White, White Day', Hlynur Palmason's follow-up to the Danish language 'Winter Brothers' promoted as well. Also, apparently there's a new Patricio Guzman doc out of competition, would love for that to get some more attention if it's as good as his last few films.

Frederik B, Thursday, 2 May 2019 15:48 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Can someone @Festival_Cannes explain how on the festival's Instagram they announce a new Pedro Costa film in Un Certain Regard (VITALINA VARELA), but it's missing from today's official announcement and the website? (Spotted by @c0mmunicants.) #Cannes2019 pic.twitter.com/YlDQp17uUF

PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE (Céline Sciamma; France)

Promising looking title

xyzzzz__, Thursday, 2 May 2019 16:16 (three weeks ago) Permalink

unfortunately the plot synopsis sounds awful

Simon H., Thursday, 2 May 2019 16:22 (three weeks ago) Permalink

How many people vote in these polls early vs waiting to hear how the films have gone down? I guess I should poll this.

Alba, Thursday, 2 May 2019 17:50 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I usually vote early to ensure maximum embarrassment

Simon H., Thursday, 2 May 2019 17:54 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I vote Ken Loach every time.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 2 May 2019 17:55 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I voted for the Tarantino for some reason. I have no idea how to predict this. Thought maybe the Malick, apparently a return to form, could win, but I bet it'll be one of these directors I've never heard of.

"Nominations" is a weird way to tag it, but yeah. The Loach affinity is radiant.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 2 May 2019 18:56 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Which, I admit I haven't seen either of his Palme winners, but I did watch The Angels' Share and Looking for Eric and they were both awful.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 2 May 2019 18:58 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, the inability to put minor Loach in UCR is boring. Also, 13 noms and non of them are Kes. That's just pathetic.

Frederik B, Thursday, 2 May 2019 21:15 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I,Daniel Blake is my favourite since Sweet Sixteen. His collaboration with Laverty is not particularly fruitful imo.

Every last movie that was also up for a Palme that year probably got robbed

reading all of the ecstatic reviews for The Lighthouse makes me wonder how the Cannes organizers make their selections, and why something like this would be left out of the competition

I like late Malick a lot but the reception to this one has been lukewarm. Pleased the Sciamma has gone down well.

Another out of competition film that seems to have been v.popular is And Then We Danced.

was really interested to read that the score for Atlantique was composed by Fatima al Qadiri! also the "music direction" in Port Authority was by Matthew Herbert.

from everything I've read about Portrait of a Lady on Fire it sounds fantastic

Dan S, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 00:32 (three days ago) Permalink

going to wait til the end, but right now I think I'm going to vote for that in this poll

Dan S, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 00:45 (three days ago) Permalink

One thing I noticed following it all on podcasts and Twitter (my Cannes list is here in case you want it) is that it hasn't reflected the critics' scoreboard where Pain and Glory is way out in front. That's got more of a 7/10 kind of thumbs up and it's Bacurau and Portrait of a Lady on Fire that have really got people going. Maybe a younger generation.

Alba, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 06:40 (three days ago) Permalink

Or maybe it's just the UK bias of my Twitter list and podcast listening.

All signs point to everyone predicting Portrait of a Lady on Fire, wanting it to go to Parasite, thinking it's actually Pedro Almodovar's time, and Inarritu and company awarding Tarantino.

That Rocketman placement surprises me! It isn't surprising that of the competition films that have been reviewed so far Malick and Dolan are the most divisive (highest std deviation)

Fun to click back on previous years to see how critical consensus shook out differently vs. the initial rush of the competition. For example:
