Fresh after being singed by Netflix, Cannes Film Festival chief Thierry Frémaux presented the French festival’s 2018 lineup. The goods: An opening night psychological thriller from Asghar Farhadi (starring Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz), Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, David Robert Mitchell’s much-anticipated Under the Silver Lake, and The Image Book, Jean-Luc Godard’s first new film in four years. Notably missing was Lars von Trier’s The House That Jack Built, starring Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, while Solo: A Star Wars Story will screen out of competition (which is probably for the best).
