7 Movies At Cannes 2022 You Should Know

Now the whole list is huge and it is not possible for many to see all the films on these lists. So for your ease, we have stated the 7 best movies at Cannes 2022 that you should at least watch to get the essence of life.

1. Elvis

Starting with the movies at Cannes 2022, we cannot miss this. Baz Luhrmann again gets on with his trademark truckload of spangly glamor and sugar-rush showbiz to the narrative of Elvis Presley with Austin Butler being the King and Tom Hanks as his manipulative manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Even though this film was out of competition, you should watch this.

2. The Natural History of Destruction

Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa comes back to Cannes for a special screening of his recent documentary, based on the book by WG Sebald related to the horror of aerial bombardment at the time of the second world war. This is a subject with a special sonority today. This documentary received a special screening at the 75th Cannes Film Festival 2022.

3. Crimes of the Future

Cannes usual David Cronenberg returns with his own long-gestating script, related to a future world in which people have to adjust to transhumanism. Growth accelerates, bodies develop new organs and human identities are in a manner of flux.

4. Joyland

Joyland is the very first Pakistani film to screen in the Official Selection category of the Cannes Film Festival 2022. The film marks the feature debut of director and writer Saim Sadiq. His other short film Darling took home the Orizzonti Best Short Film at the 2019 Venice Film Festival.

Joyland narrates the story of a patriarchal family longing for a baby boy to carry forward the family line. Not known to the parents, their youngest son joins a sensual dance theater and falls in love with the trans scarlet. Among the list of movies at Cannes 2022, this is a must watch movie.

5. All That Breathes

All That Breathes by Shaunak Sen is nominated for the Special Screening section of the 75th Cannes Film Festival.

The 90-minute documentary aims solely at environmental crises. It follows two Indian brothers, Nadeem and Saud who rescue and treat injured birds. They operate a bird clinic in Delhi and have made it their life’s motto to care for the injured creatures.

6. Showing Up

Michelle Williams is the all time leading player for director Kelly Reichardt, and she returns as Lizzie, who is a sculptor whose life is about to be changed drastically by a new show. Other cast members include Judd Hirsch, André 3000, and Amanda Plummer.

7. Men

A frisson of League-of-Gentlemen disquiet in a creepy English country village where all the men played by Rory Kinnear have a strange resemblance to each other: Jessie Buckley casts in this scary movie from Alex Garland.

Closing Lines

The 75th Cannes Film Festival ended on 28.05.2022 with a bang. There were many new faces that were seen on the jury table and many new films paved their way to the most renowned film festival in the world. Among the movies at Cannes 2022, some are worth watching and so we have stated the names of the top 7 movies that we should watch at least once. The list includes movies from all parts of the world.
