Cannes 2011 Critics’ Week Line-up Includes Jeff Nichols, Jonathan Caouette & More

Posted by , on April 18, 2011 at 2:21 pm 

Last year the Cannes Film Festival Critics’ Week includes Janus Metz‘s fantastic war doc Armadillo (in limited theaters as of last week) and Quentin Dupieux‘s delightfully wacky Rubber. Today, 2011′s line-up has been unveiled. The two big films include one of my favorites from Sundance, Jeff Nichol’s Shotgun Stories follow-up Take Shelter (starring Man of Steel’s Michael Shannon) and Jonathan Caouette‘s first feature since his intimate documentary Tarnation, titled Walk away Renée. Check out the full list below (as well as the rest of the line-up here) and come back for our reviews straight from Cannes.
