          Col Needham's Top 10 Cannes Picks for 2019

          by Col Needham | last updated - 9 months ago

          I am the Founder and CEO of IMDb and these are the ten movies which I am most looking forward to seeing at the Cannes Film Festival in 2019, starting with the opening night film and then in no particular order. As usual the festival promises to be an exciting blend of premieres from around the world in a magical environment, creating that je ne sais quoi which is Cannes.

          I try to pick my Cannes films by knowing almost as little as I can about them so my comments below only give a few hints of what I am expecting.

          These are all taken from my longer Cannes Interest List and I will copy items to my Cannes Film Festival 2019 list as I watch them.
