For those heading to Cannes this May, two films that look set to unspool on the Croisette are Indiana Jones And The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull and the Coens brothers' Washington-set comedy/drama Burn Without Reading starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand, which sees Joel and Ethan working for the first time in an age without their usual cinematographer Roger Deakins. He's been replaced by Emmanuel Lubezki, who's no slouch behind the camera, with credits including Sleepy Hollow, Ali, A Little Princess, Children Of Men and The New World. He's also, officially, the nicest man in the world. Take it from me.
