71st Cannes Film Festival Includes Films by Spike Lee, Jean-Luc Godard

The line-up of films screening at the 71st Cannes Film Festival has just been announced. Some of the most intriguing films in competition for the Palme d’Or, the top prize of the festival, are BlacKkKlansman, directed, co-written, and produced by Spike Lee and produced by Jordan Peele and Jason Blum; 87-year-old Jean-Luc Godard’s latest film Le live d’image (The Picture Book); Burning, Chang-dong Lee’s first film since Poetry (2010), which was my favorite film released in the U.S. in 2011; and Three Faces, the fourth feature film directed by Iranian director Jafar Panahi since his government arrested him in 2010 and banned him from making films for twenty years. I was hoping to see Terrence Malick’s first foreign-language film Radegund and Lars von Trier’s serial killer film The House That Jack Built.
