Cannes Countdown: Classics Lineup Announced

Cannes Countdown: Classics Lineup Announced

Restored and retrospective screenings at film festivals are always a double-edged sword. It’s an amazing chance to see some beautiful and wonderful vintage films on the big screen. But, you’re also so busy watching the brand-new features at a festival, that it can be hard to find the time for the Classics. I hope to catch a few of the Cannes Classics announced for this year’s festival. They include a pair of John Wayne selections (including Hondo in 3-D!), three stellar Olivier Shakespeare adaptations, and a slew of documentaries on film icons. Plus, there will be prints of Argento’s Suspiria and Elaine May’s Mikey and Nicky, among other classics. Get the full Cannes Classics lineup here.
