Cannes has wrapped once again and, as the directors and stars make their way home, we've gathered all of our 2012 coverage together to help you relive this year's festival. Film Comment and Film Society sent our biggest film buffs and most talented journalists to report back on their impressions of the 65th edition of the prestigious fest. Not only do they discuss the films that have impressed them this year, but also the controversies, the mood around the festival, and what it is like being amongst such a talented group of artists.
