The Upcoming  Music 🎸Art 🎨 Food (@theupcomingfood)🍴Theatre 🎭 Fashion 💃 Cinema 🎬 Glamour ✨ Your daily fix of London (and beyond) 🇬🇧🇪🇺 #theupcoming

The 71st edition of the prestigious #festivaldecannes featured seasoned talent alongside new and preciously unknown rising stars. As always, the Croisette loves a good controversy and this year certainly didn’t fail to deliver. Here are our predictions and highlights:

Burning felt the most complete and beguiling film in competition, but its elliptical strangeness may not translate to jury consensus. Cold War had an exquisite brevity that could be seen as slightness. Capharnaüm may resonate. The courtroom framing device is weak and the structure half-baked, but the astonishing middle act, wherein a young boy and toddler attempt to survive on the streets in a Lebanese inner city, could swing the jury’s vote.

BlacKkKlansman. Spike Lee returns to Cannes with a radical declaration on racism in the US. Telling the incredible true story of Colorado police officer Ron Stallworth, this exciting film is as phenomenal for its throwback 70s style as much as it is for the important, unapologetic political statement it makes. An all-star cast fills out the team on this film that’s sure to generate buzz.

Luis Ortega's crime drama The Angel has the perfect mix of intense conflict and absolute joy. Indiscriminate theft and murder sounds like a dark tale but the story is told with joie de vivre that’s simply intoxicating to behold.

Panos Cosmatos shocks and thrills audiences with his sophomore feature Mandy, a bloody barbarian flick featuring Nicolas Cage. The antics of this dark fantasy are pure fun and an incredible attention to the world-making result in a film which is nothing less than fantastic in every sense.

Steven Yeun is hypnotic as Ben, the oleaginous Gatsby figure in Burning. .

Zhao Tao as Qiao in Ash Is Purest White. It's a performance of astonishing range, taking in the emotional and physical changes of a woman in love over several decades.

What an absolutely incredible concert from @maxrichtermusic performing Three Worlds entirely. Goose bumps are still on for War Anthem 🙇🏻‍♂️

Red card to the @barbicancentre as a speaker would regularly break up throughout the performance. Seriously?

Press conference for Cold War - one of our absolute favourite films so far (#linkinprofile for the review). An elegant, elliptical study of love and an earnest if unintentional satire of historical metaphor
