    I think there’s a few more they haven’t yet announced. Stuff like Weerasethakul, Davies presumably. Maybe Desplechin? I had hoped to see Miguel Gomes’ 1001 Nights here but if it’s ready it’ll probably be in Director’s Fortnight or something since it’s so long. 

    I’m so excited to see the reception for some of these. That Hungarian film Son of Saul sounds like it could even be an early Foreign Film frontrunner. Synopsis: In the horror of 1944 Auschwitz, a prisoner forced to burn the corpses of his own people finds moral survival upon trying to salvage from the flames the body of a boy he takes for his son.
    …or does that sound a bit dreary?  

    I don’t know why, but I get the sense the Coens might go for some of these Asian directors. Maybe Zhangke for the Palme, Hsio-hsien for Director? Then again, The Lobster…

    Blanchett vs. Blunt vs. Cotillard for Actress?

    So only two American directors in competition (Van Sant and Haynes) and NO Brits? Surprising.

    Miguel Gomes is my neighbor so I had the distinct pleasure to watch 1001 Nights weeks ago. Exhausting but extremely good and careful with the details. The longest film I’ve ever watched.

    I’m insanely jealous. Tabu was my favorite film of 2012.

    There are four more films to be revealed. 

    Also, while there are only two American directors in competition, there are a couple of European/Asian film makers who have made English language films in competition, such as Sorrentino’s Youth.

    OMG! Really? I visited the set of Tabu a couple of times and it was incredible. I loved Laura Soveral’s performance (the actress who played old Aurora). Carloto Cotta was incredible as well! I applaud your flawless taste. It’s no easy task to digest and appreciate Miguel Gomes’s films but the ones that do are usually very interesting, fascinating folks 🙂

    Same here. Tabu is one of the best films of this decade, easily. And I love Gomes. He would probably have me at his door every other day if we were neighbors.

    Palme d’Or odds from Neil Young at Jigsawlounge, with an edge to two-time Grand Prix winner Matteo Garrone (but basically, Young says, a crapshoot):

    5-1 Garrone – The Tale of Tales

    6-1 Audiard – Dheepan (aka Erran)

    7-1 Sorrentino – Youth (aka The Early Years)

    8-1 Kore-eda – Our Little Sister

    8-1 any additional film yet to be announced

    9-1 Lanthimos – The Lobster

    10-1 Jia – Mountains May Depart

    12-1 Haynes – Carol

    12-1 Trier – Louder Than Bombs

    12-1 Hou – The Assassin

    16-1 Maïwenn – My King

    20-1 Kurzel – Macbeth

    20-1 Nemes – Son of Saul

    22-1 Moretti – My Mother

    25-1 Brizé – A Simple Man

    25-1 Donzelli – Marguerite and Julien

    28-1 Van Sant – The Sea of Trees

    33-1 Villeneuve – Sicario (aka Hitman) 

    I think he should be a little higher on Son of Saul, which the Cannes programmers seemed to be very excited about (the other one they seemed particularly high on was The Lobster).
