Festival de Cannes: Toute la Selection

Arguably the most glamorous film festival in the world, the 2011 Festival Cannes Festival kicked off today. Among the filmmakers represented in competition include old standbys such as Almodovar, Lars Von Trier, Terrence Malick, Takashi Miike, and the Dardennes brothers. The jury groups are headed by Robert de Niro, Michel Gondry, Emir Kusturica (nice) and Joon Ho Bong (very nice).

My top picks include:
Habemus Papam by Nanni Moretti
Hanezu No Tsuki by Naomi Kawase
Ichimei by Takashi Miike
La Piel Que Habito by Pedro Almodóvar
La Source des Femmes by Radu Mihaileanu
This Must Be the Place by Paolo Sorrentino
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lynne Ramsay
