Poster revealed for the 64th Cannes Film Festival
While last year's Juliette Binoche-ified poster was playful, this year's is a little bit retro and completely elegant. Showcasing Faye Dunaway (from a little seen film of hers from the 70's), and clean, simple numbers, I think this is one of my favorites from the recent string of Cannes posters. The festival is sure to be interesting this year, with big titles like The Tree of Life. Other possible contenders (please please please) include David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method (so that's where you've been, Keira Knightley), Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Inhabit, and the Tilda Swinton drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. And, as will be the case for many of the entries at the festival (thankfully, none of the four listed), it will mark that long countdown between hearing about an intriguing film, and that film's actual release state side.
