Cannes 2014: Criticwire Averages for Every Film

Cannes 2014: Criticwire Averages for Every Film

With its expansive program and sheer volume of premieres, the Cannes Film Festival can be a tricky one to follow sometimes. Between the competition, Directors Fortnight and Critics Week, the new offerings can be both exciting and daunting. So to help look back on the two weeks that were, here is the complete collection of feature films that played as part of the French festivities (in all its many venues), organized by premiere date with bonus links to our film pages and their corresponding Criticwire grade averages. 

(It’s not brunch on the Riviera, but it’s close.)
