I'm pretty sure the next Jia Zhangke and Abdellatif Kechiche films are not ready yet - I can't get a clear consensus on whether or not the Hou, Weerasethakul, Gomes, Trier and Kusturica films are complete yet.

Really hope we see Maren Ade here.

what happened to 71 Flashmobs of a Code of Unknown Chance? Is that not close to being complete?

I wonder if Dau actually exists or if everyone in the cast and crew eventually just starved to death

Post Re: Lists Lists Lists

I was bored so I did a stupid thought experiment. I took all the major award (1st/2nd/3rd/Director/Actor/Actress/Screenplay) winners from the three major competitive festivals (Berlin, Cannes, Venice) so far this decade, tallied what I saw and gave awards as a Cannes jury would with one tie allowed and no repeats for specific films.
