Cannes Film Festival 2012: The Lineup

The list of the films to be screened in Cannes Film Festival this spring is out! They just announced it in their press conference in Paris this morning. I'm so excited! I want to see every single film of these, well, maybe I can do without the Dracula 3D by Dario Argento, to be honest. One more thing, I'm so happy that Manoel de Oliveira is not in that list. Give some space to the younger ones, dude! Aren't you supposed to be retired by now?
