    Official lineup is announced on the 20th. Festival begins May 17th. Awards handed out May 28th.

    So far, locks include:

    The Fountain (Aranofsky)
    X-Men 3
    Da Vinci Code (opener)
    Marie Antoinette (Sofia Coppola)
    Over the Hedge (Dreamworks CG)
    Volver (Almodovar)
    Shortbus (John Cameron Mitchell sex move)
    World Trade Center (Oliver Stone) (20-minute preview)

    Films assumed to be showing include:
    Babel (Inarritu directing, with Brad Pitt, Blanchett, and G.G. Bernal)
    Fast Food Nation (Linklater)

    Films that might show include:
    Fur (Diane Arbus biopic w/ Kidman)
    Black Dahlia (de Palma)
    The Good German (Soderbergh-Clooney B&W project)
    Inland Empire (David Lynch)
    Aki Kaurismaki's Lights in the Dusk
    The Caiman (Moretti)
    The Wind That Shakes the Barley (Loach)

    Word on the street is Lynch isn't yet done with his film.

    Vincent Cassel is MC.

    Wong Kar Wai is jury president.

    In less important news, my short film was not selected for this year's competition. [​IMG]

    In any case, there will soon be plenty to discuss in the world of film.

    Regards,
    Nathan

    I have to agree! I can't wait for "Black Dahlia". I'm a bit of a Elroy nut. A bunch on that list I want to see.
