The final work shown in Cannes Classics, introduced by the divine and still very carnal Kim Novak. My final film seen at this year's festival, and a wonderful way to go out. I'm falling.
The director's strongest work since Dead Man, and also his most autobiographically shaded. Paul Bowles is one of the primary literary and cinematic influences.
Saw a restored version in the Cannes Classics. The optical effects, done in camera, are more poetic and sublime than ever.
