Ology’s Cannes Power Rankings: The Festival BeginsCannes Press
Ology’s staff writer Jonah Gardner power ranks 10 Cannes Festival films using a variety of criteria. Cosmopolis comes in as #2.
Yesterday, Emily ran down the competition titles playing at the Cannes Film Festival, which is officially underway in the ugly, cold, and unglamorous French Riviera.
