The 2015 Directors' Fortnight slate at Cannes has been very strong indeed, with many of the festival's standout features showing in the strand. Alongside high-profile defections from filmmakers Arnaud Desplechin and Miguel Gomes, there were also acclaimed titles from lesser-known ones such as Thomas Bidegain and Ciro Guerra. All of the reviews for films which didn't receive standalone posts are featured below, save those for Dope, which was sufficiently covered earlier this year in its Sundance debut.
