Complete Cannes Film Festival Film List Now Up!

cannes.gifNot sure how long this has been available but I’ve just come across the complete list of films set to appear at this year’s edition of the Cannes film festival and though a few titles are old by North American standards the list as a whole is a doozy … In my little world these would be the highlights:

Pedro Almodavar – Bad Education
Wong Kar Wai – 2046
Oliver Assayas – Clean
Michael Moore – Faranheit 911
Chan Wook Park – Old Boy
Mamoru Oshii – Innocence
Zhang Yimou – House of Flying Daggers
Wolfgang Peterson – Troy

Gotta say it’s a little strange to see Shrek 2 in the competition list … and according to Aint It Cool the listing there for Kill Bill Volume 2 is actually going to be the re-edited back together Kill Bill uber edition. The whole list is available here.

  1. Hey, I never said I didn’t LIKE Shrek …

    But seriously, can you imagine what it’ll be like for Tarantino et al as they try to give out the awards this year? How do you even begin to compare something like Shrek to a Wong Kar Wai film? Madness, I say …

  2. Yeah, I know it’s been done before, it just seems really out of place with the rest of the competition line up … it’s mostly arty stuff, then Shrek.

  3. Not so strange, the original Shrek was in the competition list for 2001. With Innocence in as well, this will be the first time that two animated films are in competition at the same time.
