The Cannes Film Festival is my favorite festival of the year. Not because of the location (Cannes is a beautiful city of course) but because it always have a good flair for great movies. Thanks to the past few years (And its new president if you ask me), the movies presented on the "croisette" are better than ever and a lot of Best Picture & best foreign contenders made their way to the oscars from there (There will be blood, Midnight in Paris, The artist, Amour, Tree of life, Beasts of the southern Wild, A Prophet...).
A few movies are already nearly certain to be there (I'm looking at you James Gray & Ashgar Farhadi) but who do you think will be there?
