Cannes ti­tles are in the can

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The final few films in the chief races at Cannes have been an­nounced. Fans of the ex­tra­or­di­nary Kill List will be happy to hear that Ben Wheat­ley’s new film, Sight­seers, is to re­ceive a spe­cial screen­ing in the Di­rec­tor’s Fort­night. That quasi-of­fi­cial side­bar opens with Michel Gondry’s The We and the I, which many ob­servers had ex­pected to turn up in the main com­pe­ti­tion or in Un Cer­tain Re­gard. Also play­ing is Rod­ney Ascher’s Room 237, a doc­u­men­tary about the mak­ing of Stan­ley Kubrick’s The Shin­ing.

The prin­ci­pal satel­lite event, the Crit­ics’ Week, of­fers some do­mes­tic in­ter­est. Ru­fus Nor­ris’s Bro­ken, adapted by Ir­ish
