Number 13 is lucky for some, as we have already seen with the announcement of the members of the jury for the 66th Cannes Film Festival. Steven Spielberg is an exceptional Jury President and he will be supported by a wonderful array of stars from the world of cinema, including Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee, and Christoph Waltz to name just a few Oscar-winners.
As a huge fan of American indie cinema, my top Palme d’Or winners are without a doubt David Lynch’s Wild at Heart (1990) and Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994). At the 2013 festival, I’m looking forward to seeing Inside Llewyn Davis from the Cohen brothers, and Steven Soderbergh’s Behind the Candelabra, but also all of the other, smaller films which are often where new talent is uncovered.
