Cannes Contenders: Lynch? Loach? Coppola?
2

As Berlin came to a close over the weekend, all eyes now turn to Cannes. And with slim pickings at the European Film Market, there will be high expectations for a rebound on this year's Croisette. Last week, Screen Daily offered its preview of Cannes potentials: It's always best to eye these early predictor stories with suspicion, but they offer a glimpse of what's available -- and if not an accurate picture of Cannes, per se -- a reflection of the coming film festival season.

According to Screen, here are some of the top contenders: David Lynch's "Inland Empire," Aki Karismauki's "Lights In The Dusk," Ken Loach's "The Wind That Shakes The Barley," Mohsen Makhmalbaf's "Scream of the Ants," Kim Ki-duk's "Time," Francis Ford Coppola's "Youth Without Youth," Pedro Almodovar's "Volver," Guillermo Del Toro's "Pan’s Labyrinth," Pablo Trapero’s "Born And Raised," Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s "Babel," Darren Aronofsky’s "The Fountain," Anthony Minghella's "Breaking and Entering," Brian DePalma’s "Black Dahlia," Jia Zhangke's "Still Life," Lou Ye's "Summer Palace," Tian Zhuangzhuang's "Wu Qingyuan," and Johnnie To's "Election 2," among others.

Screen also reported that new films from Richard Linklater, John Cameron Mitchell, Sofia Coppola, Mira Nair, Marco Bellochio, Hirokazu Kore-eda, Bruno Dumont, Volker Schloendorff, Nanni Moretti and "Fast Runner" collaborators Zacharias Kunuk & Norman Kohn are also in the mix.
