Cannes 2024: Ones to watch

Selecting Cannes titles based on potential Palm Dog winners wasn’t guaranteed to garner the best results, but in the case of Black Dog I couldn’t have been more surprised. The film was sold in the programme as a dramatic tale of an ex-convict readjusting to society with the help of a canine companion, the titular black dog, but what it develops into is a neo-western of grand scale that doesn’t lose its dramatic or comedic edge throughout.
