10 of the Hottest Movies at 2015 Cannes
J Thoendell stashed this in Film
On paper, there's a pretty terrific lineup this year, with terrific world-cinema directors like Matteo Garrone, Jia Zhangke, and Jacques Audiard well represented, and a surprising amount of English-language films coming from foreign helmers (not to mention indies that have already popped Stateside, like the terrific Sundance comedy Dope and the harrowing SXSW winner Krisha).
Advance buzz on the newest Pixar movie is strong, with some whispering that it packs an emotional wallop to rival Up. Inside Out casts Amy Poehler as Joy, one of several anthropomorphized emotions (including Bill Hader as Fear and Mindy Kaling as Disgust) that are vying to guide the mind of a little girl. After a recent run of mostly sequels, could Pixar be back to brilliant basics?
