Can't wait to see what Refn and Miike bring us next.

Also, is there a bigger snob move than calling it 'Festival de Cannes' instead of the Cannes Film Festival on a site that's predominately English speaking? We get it, you're worldly, Whoopideedoo.

What is Nebraska about? This is the only one that stood out to me because I initially thought of The Boss's album of the same name.

The film I am most looking forward to is ONLY GOD FORGIVES. A close second is STRAW SHIELD by Takashi Miike. It looks like an interesting year for films at Cannes.
