Cannes Critics’ Panel: Lukas Dhont’s Close Edges Out Crimes of the Future as Best Rated Film in 2022
It will have been a nail-biting final vote that determined the official top film among our 2022 Cannes Critics’ Panel. Lukas Dhont’s Close finishes with a total average score of 3.5 (or 3.55 to be precise) with David Cronenberg placing second with a 3.4 average score (or 3.47 to be precise) for Crimes of the Future. Placing third we have a tie between Triangle of Sadness and R.M.N. (3.3). Placing in the top five, we find Armageddon Time (3.2).
In what will be called a very average line-up, the only other films to get a total score of 3 and above belong to Showing Up, Holy Spider and EO.
Falling under the 3 mark, we got a ton of films at 2.9 we have Boy From Heaven, Tori et Lokita, Decision to Leave, Tchaikovsky’s Wife, Leila’s Brothers, Broker, and Les Amandiers.
At 2.8 we have Nostalgia and Pacifiction, at 2.7 The Eight Mountains, at 2.6 Stars at Noon and finally the worst rated film among our panel ended up being Frère et soeur (2.2).
