Great Balls of Fire!

Director Jim McBride puts retro magic into a rock ‘n’ roll bio about a big talent who was probably more fun on stage than in person. Dennis Quaid hits the right note of insanity for his portrayal of Jerry Lee Lewis’s rise to fame and fortune. Winona Ryder’s hilarious, almost scary bobby-sox Lolita becomes Jerry’s girl bride. Everything’s ducky until the real-life story goes sour, leaving the comic characterizations high and dry.

New Images from Cannes Titles By Paul Verhoeven, Bruno Dumont, Park Chan-wook, Cristian Mungiu & More

There are many reasons one could argue for Cannes’ 2016 lineup as their best in recent years; the most persuasive might be its plurality of options, country- and genre-wise. (Yes, this is said in acknowledgement of how numerous Eastern nations are not represented much or at all, as well as the dearth of female filmmakers.) There’s good evidence in this globe-spanning round-up of stills and posters, all showcasing titles we are (to varying degrees) excited about.

Collected, then, are: a veritable cornucopia of bright new images from the Michaël Dudok de Wit-directed Studio Ghibli-Wild Bunch co-production The Red Turtle; Isabelle Huppert looking very suave and dangerous in Paul Verhoven‘s Elle lovely widescreen compositions from Cristian Mungiu‘s Graduation and new images from Romanian counterpart Cristi Puiu‘s Sieranevada; a set of photos from the Bruno Dumont-directed, Juliette Binoche-led Slack Bay; and, courtesy FilmItalia, Bérénice Bejo

Cannes: who's in the running?

Cannes: who's in the running?
Screen rounds up the films from across the globe that could launch at Cannes…

With less than a month to go until the Cannes Film Festival announces its line-up at its annual Paris press conference on April 14, Screen looks at what could make it into Official Selection and the parallel sections of Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week.

UK and Ireland

The UK could have one of its strongest Cannes for years with hot favourites for a competition slot including Andrea Arnold’s Shia Labeouf-starring Us road movie American Honey and Ken Loach’s gritty Northern England-set drama I, Daniel Blake. It would be Loach’s 12th time in competition.

Ben Wheatley is also reportedly gunning for an Official Selection slot for his 1970s Boston-set, gangland thriller Free Fire, potentially Out of Competition or in Midnight Screenings. He was last in Cannes with Sightseers in Directors’ Fortnight.

Other UK hopefuls include Stephen FrearsFlorence Foster Jenkins and Indian

Cinema Italiano: 2015 Venice Film Festival Predictions

Now that we’ve come out of the Cannes ether, we can examine several of the names glaringly absent from the lineup that may potentially premiere on the Lido this fall. With controversial moves finding Garrel, Gomes, and Desplechin playing the Quinzaine, while Naomi Kawase and Apichatpong Weerasethakul got slotted in Un Certain Regard, we’re aggravated and pleased about some of this shifting around, but all in all, the main competition this year didn’t end up feeling like many programming risks were taken.

First off, to the general surprise of all, German director Maren Ade and British director Terence Davies were absent from the line-up, both with new highly anticipated titles (Toni Erdmann and Sunset Song respectively). Thierry Fremaux, arguably, tried to mix things up a bit with the Main Competition this year, inviting two female directors (Sacre Bleu!), including Valerie Donzelli and repeat offender Maiwenn (both titles
