Finally, it is official! I’m excited and humbled to announce that I’ll covering the 2011 Festival de Cannes for Slant Magazine and The House Next Door. The rumor mill is already churning at light speed, with a purported lineup that would be the festival’s strongest in years. There should be new films from Malick, von Trier, Almodovar, Cronenberg, Allen, the Dardennes, Arnold, Moretti, and van Sant, just to name a few. May can’t get here fast enough.
