  • Jury Prize: Andrea Arnold, "American Honey"
  • Best Actress: Jaclyn Jose, "Ma Rosa"

Really? I haven't paid all *that* close attention, but I've heard a lot of grumbling from people who were there.

New, well-regarded films from folks like Park and Verhoeven are more than enough to get me excited, but I'm very aware that not everyone likes those guys.

Beyond those two, many great filmmakers had films at Cannes this year (Almodovar! Arnold! Assayas! Dardenne! Jarmusch! Kore-eda! Spielberg!). Minor films or no, this was a rare year when many films captured my attention.
