Thanks to GreenCine Daily for the updates. And I must second one of the reviewer's disappointment that Claire Denis' latest, White Material, with Isabelle Huppert, Nicolas Duvauchelle and Isaach De Bankolé was either not ready in time or not selected. The same goes for Bertrand Bonello's De la guerre, with Asia Argento, which also makes zero appearances this year from last year's princess of Cannes.
