May 16 2024 • 43 mins

Cannes 2024 has arrived—and our intrepid on-the-Croisette crew of Film Comment contributors is high-tailing it from screening to screening, ready to cut through the noise with a series of thoughtful dispatches, interviews, and podcasts. For this episode, Film Comment Editor Devika Girish is joined by Cannes veterans and all-star FC critics Bilge Ebiri and Jonathan Romney, whose dispatch on the festival’s early days will be in Friday’s Film Comment Letter. The three discuss and debate some of the most buzzy titles that have screened to date, including George Miller’s would-be blockbuster Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (3:15), Magnus van Horn's The Girl With the Needle (8:17), Rungano Nyoni’s On Becoming a Guinea Fowl (17:18), Jonathan Millet’s Ghost Trail (26:15), Roberto Minervini’s The Damned (33:19), and Rúnar Rúnarsson’s When the Light Breaks (37:03).
