2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 7 – Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch

2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 7 – Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch

He opened the 2012 edition of the Cannes Film Festival with Moonrise Kingdom and he returns for a second year in a row (The French Dispatch was announced for the 2020 edition) and for a second film in comp. Wes Anderson’s latest is as one critic called it more worthy of being a museum piece as there is so much packed in here. A huge cast and all the trimmings, this is worthy of its own book of footnotes.

Favorable ratings from fifteen of our critics, The French Dispatch is currently ranked 3rd.
