We'll have to wait for the latest offerings from Wong Kar Wai, Paul Thomas Anderson, Terrence Malick, Derek Cianfrance, Olivier Assayas, Manuel de Oliveira, and Park Chan-wook. But the competition Cannes line-up for 2012 leans on American indies, boasts two star-studded Australian pick-ups from Harvey Weinstein, two stars from "Twilight," and no women directors. The femme directors at Cannes are shunted to Un Certain Regard (the Director's Fortnight list comes later), comme toujours.
