Yesterday delivered the line-up for the Cannes Critics Week and today brings the other major sidebar with the announcement of the Directors’ Fortnight. Making their way from Sundance to Cannes is Jim Mickle‘s Cold in July (our review) and Damien Chazelle‘s big winner at Park City, the drummer drama Whiplash. Other notable inclusions are the next film from Frederick Wiseman about a London museum, as well as John Boorman‘s (Deliverance) first film in some time, Queen and Country. Getting a special screening is Tobe Hooper‘s restoration of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, while Studio Ghibli’s latest animation is also in the line-up. Check out the line-up below.
