A mysterious e-mail appeared in Indiewire’s inbox this morning from someone named “Monsieur Hulot” with a pdf of what may or may not be the 2013 Cannes Film Festival lineup and the word “Voilà.” Is the ghost of Jacques Tati trying to tell us something? Or is this just another person going out of his or her way to fake us out.
The leaked pdf suggests the expected likes of Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” Claire Denis’ “Bastards,” Arnaud Desplechin’s “Un Indien des Plaines,” James Gray’s “Lowlife,” Joel & Ethan Coen’s “Inside Llewyn Davis” and Nicholas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives” will be heading to Cannes (as will — in perhaps the list’s biggest surprise, David Gordon Green’s Nicolas Cage-starrer “Joe”).
Judge for yourself below and check back with Indiewire tomorrow morning to find out whether or no “Monsieur Hulot” had the scoop or not. Our guess is no, but hey, it’s always fun to speculate..
