Do the Cannes-Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival starts today. This year I'm particularly interested in the winners because Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai is the head of the feature film jury. Although I was disappointed with his last film, "2046," he is still one of my favorite directors. Based on Sight and Sound magazine's fest preview, it seems that everyone is all hot and bothered about Pedro Almodovar's "Volver," Sofia Coppola's "Marie-Antoinette," and Nanni Moretti's "Il caimano." With Wong Kar-Wai at the helm, it will be interesting to see who wins top honors.
