Cannes 2014: Competition Titles Announced, Including THE ROVER And MAPS TO THE STARS
In Paris this morning, festival President Gilles Jacob and Director Thierry Fremaux announced the full lineup for next month's Cannes Film Festival. The festival, considered by many to be (if not the most) important and prestigious in the world, will play host to some of its very favorite directors this year for its 67th edition.
Eighteen films will compete for the Palme d'Or in the Official Competition. The Competition honors the crème de la crème of the international art-house elite, from Jean Luc Godard's 70min 3D experiment Goodbye To Language to Nuri Bilge Ceylan's 196min Turkish epic Winter's Sleep. Seventeen other films will play under the Un Certain Regard banner, including Asia Argento's autobiographical Misunderstood and Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, the dark fantasy Lost River (formerly How To Catch A Monster).
There are so, so many more films to get excited about (including the latest from Zhang Yimou, the Steve Carrell murder thriller Foxcatcher, and Wim Wenders' latest documentary), so click through the gallery below for more comments and the full list.
