Cannes 2019 Movie Scorecard

By the time the 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival concludes, it’ll have debuted new films from Pedro Almodóvar (Pain and Glory), Bong Joon-ho (Parasite), Terrence Malick (A Hidden Life), Ken Loach (Sorry We Missed You), Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire), and so much more. Jim Jarmusch opened the fest with his unexpected zombie hang-out comedy The Dead Don’t Die, while Quentin Tarantino is rush-delivering Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to have its premiere here, echoing the same impossible task he pulled off 10 years earlier with Inglourious Basterds‘ Cannes debut.

Our RT scorecard includes films debuting at the festival (like Tarantino’s Hollywood and Jarmusch’s zom-com) as well as those that got their start somewhere else, but are screening on the Riviera (like Share and Wounds, which bowed at Sundance). We’ll be updating it daily during the festival as more movies screen, more reviews come in, and Tomatometer scores change. So check in regularly, and check back at the festival’s end, to see where everything playing at this little festival by the sea ends up on the Tomatometer.
