Let the games begin! We’ve touched down in Cannes and, for our first of many podcasts from the festival, Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold found a quiet corner with FC contributing editor Amy Taubin to talk over some of the titles—both big and small—that we’re most excited about. On this episode, we focus on the opening film, Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die, and chat about the expectations surrounding Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. We also touch on Pedro Almodóvar’s Pain and Glory, Mati Diop’s Atlantique, Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life, and many others. Check back over the course of Cannes for a regular stream of new episodes diving into these and other films.

And, in case you missed it, be sure to check out Taubin’s interview with Jim Jarmusch, posted yesterday.
