Lauding his "corrosive wit," the Cannes Film Festival announced late Thursday that Italian director Nanni Moretti had been selected to head the jury at this year's festival. In a statement, festival chief Thierry Frémaux, who holds the title "general delegate," said, "The Festival wanted to celebrate its 65th season with a European jury President. High-spirited and marked by his modernity and intelligence, Nanni Moretti's films are the incarnation of all the best in cinema over the past thirty years."
