Cannes 1986: Some Rough Patches

So far Nagisa Ôshima's Max, mon amour is my least favorite film in the Palme competition, and Ruy Guerra's Ópera do Malandro is my least favorite sidebar selection. You can see the reviews by clicking those links and gauge my progress with the festival so far. But even after hitting these two rough patches, I can promise there are better films looming on the review horizon. And besides, I wouldn't leave the 1986 Cannes Film Festival for anything. It's the only place I can find where no one is talking about Harry Potter.

Very glad to have your writing back here; I want you to write about pretty much every movie ever made. I even want to see "Fool for Love" again after reading what you had to day about it. Love the photo with Peter Weller.

I'm on the same page with you about "Max"---have you seen or liked other Oshima movies? I have lots of problems with him, generally, but I do like his last film "Taboo" a lot.
