2024 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Rasoulof, Kapadia, Audiard, Baker & Schrader are Top 5

On awards day, there is what they call le reprise des films de la Compétition – essentially each film in the comp receives one extra screening for those who might have missed the film, and while our top three films didn’t move, some scores did become official. Rasoulof’s The Seed of the Sacred Fig edged out Kapadia’s All We Iagine as Light but one point, while Schrader’s Oh, Canada technically edged out Arnold’s Bird and Jia Zhangke’s Caught by the Tides if we take into consideration the decimal point differences. Here is the final grades and last chart.

The top 5:
Mohammad Rasoulof’ 3.6
Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine as Light 3.5
Jacques Audiard’s Emilia Pérez 3.4
Sean Baker’s Anora 3.4
Paul Schrader’s Oh, Canada 3.0
Andrea Arnold’s Bird, 3.0
Jia Zhangke’s Caught by the Tides 3.0

Middle of the pack:

Miguel Gomes’ Grand Tour 2.9

Yorgos Lanthimos’ Kinds of Kindness 2.6
Karim Aïnouz’s Motel Destino 2.5
