About to board a flight from New York to Nice (the nearest airport to Cannes), and I have a question for all readers anticipating the 64th Festival de Cannes. From the full lineup (including Competition, Un Certain Regard, Critics' Week, Directors' Fortnight, and all the sections in between) which filmmaker would you most:
- Want to interview;
- Want to have a drink with;
- Want to visit on his or her set while filming?
It might be difficult to do any of the three with some of the deceased filmmakers in the Cannes Classics section, so perhaps, if tempted, you can include those in a bonus round: Filmmakers to bring back from the dead to interview, drink, or observe.
