As usual, this depends on whom you ask. But there are many whom you won't even need to ask - they'll readily tell you that Xavier Dolan's Mommy is the Palme d'Or favourite at present. That's a title that has been held by a few films so far this year, but there's a fervour around Dolan's latest that doesn't seem to surround any of its rivals at present. Who'd have thought it?! Here's what some of the critics have been saying: Jason Gorber at TwitchFilm, Stephen Dalton at The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Lattanzio at Thompson on Hollywood, Mike D'Angelo at The Dissolve, A. A. Dowd at The A. V. Club, Sasha Stone at The Wrap, Jessica Kiang at The Playlist, Peter Debruge at Variety and Mary Corliss at TIME.
