    Cannes will announce very soon the Jury President of 2013. Who do you think it will be? The movies will be announced next April.

    Last years presidents and winning movies:

    2008: President Sean Penn (Winner: “The Class”).
    2009: President Isabelle Huppert (Winner: “The White Ribbon”).
    2010: President Tim Burton (Winner: “Uncle Boonmee recalls his past lives”).
    2011: President Robert de Niro (Winner: “The Tree of Life”).
    2012: President Nanni Moretti (Winner: “Amour”).

    Well, there’s von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. He and Haneke like to alternate their projects……

    Von Trier is banned, so I doubt they’ll play his film. 

    As for the president, I wouldn’t be surprised it it’s somebody like Paul Thomas Anderson or Michel Hazanvicius

    Well you’ve just made my day! Whenever I see the name, von Trier, I generally stop reading.

    The ban was for the rest of the 2011 festival, not permanent, and had to do with his being present, not his film.

    If he submits the film, I assume they’ll show it.

    Yeah, they banned Von Trier so hard Kirsten Dunst won an award.

    SF already explained, but he was never banned for life, much less his films out of competition.

    I wonder if we get two consecutive years of european presidents.  I could see a case where they give Resnais the presidency for example, sicne he never seems to win. 

    It would nice if a latin director could get the presidency for once.

    The president will probably be Ben Affleck. LOL

    I cannot wait for this! So many promising-looking films coming up that could find their way here, not least of which is the new Winding Refn, Only God Forgives, my most anticipated film of the year (besides The Wolf of Wall Street, of course).

    Resnais is too hold for the strain of this (it’s not that tough duty, but you have to be someone who is busy 12 hours a day for almost two weeks

    Kirsten Dunst should’ve won the Oscar, too.

    For what it’s worth, I used to care about Cannes more than I do Oscar. Now, it’s reversed. Over the years, with a few exceptions, they’ve become as predictable as the People’s Choice.

    I’ll feel better once I see their long list.

    Pedro Almodovar would’ve been nice, but I bet he prefers to have his new film in competition.

    What about Sundance (January) and Berlin (February) films? Cannes isn’t until May.

    Maybe Edward Yang would do it? Gus Van Sant could be a possibility also if they go american this time.

    The new Wong Kar-wai’s premiering in Berlin (out of competition) with him as the jury president, so it’s totally on my radar.

    ^ Variety gave The Grandmaster a positive review, stating Wong “exceeds expectations with “The Grandmaster,” fashioning a 1930s action saga into a refined piece of commercial filmmaking.” The review further mentions: “Boasting one of the most propulsive yet ethereal realizations of authentic martial arts onscreen, as well as a merging of physicality and philosophy not attained in Chinese cinema since King Hu’s masterpieces, the hotly anticipated pic is sure to win new converts from the genre camp.”
