Movies that booed at Cannes Film Festival
Critics cold took the work of David Lynch, Quentin Tarantino, Sofia Coppola and many others.
The audience at Cannes does not hesitate to express emotions: if the film critics came to his liking, he was waiting at least a 15-minute standing ovation, if not - then a picture can boo (that is, even the definition - booing). The most amazing thing is that often fall in favor of a truly great work. We have compiled a short list.
"Wild at Heart" (1990)
David Lynch is no stranger to violent reaction to their work. Its brilliant masterpiece "Wild at Heart" received the "Palme d'Or", but was booed before a group of people who felt that the director has gone too far.
"Taxi Driver" (1976)
It is difficult to imagine what the critics booed, and the excellent work of Martin Scorsese (by the way, too, will end up with the main prize). The film was seen by some too cruel.
"Marie Antoinette" (2006)
The film Sofia Coppola is and defenders and detractors, but one thing is certain: the history of the French queen, qualify for the "Palme d'Or", booed at the first show for the press.
"The Tree of Life" (2011)
Continuing the list booed Cannes winners, one can not forget Terrence Malick and his epic "The Tree of Life." Most viewers liked the film, but critics also found.
It is today, "Adventure" Michelangelo Antonioni considered a masterpiece, but at the first show at the Cannes film met such a violent reaction that the director had to leave the room. As a result, the film got the prize jury.
"The Antichrist" (2009)
Lars von Trier definitely knew his "Antichrist" will create excitement, but even he could not imagine that the film was booed and after the show. This work of Danish director remains a protivorechivvuyu reaction, but that night in Cannes critics won.
"Pulp Fiction" (1994)
No, during the show's first no one was indignant. This happened after the film beat the competition "Three Colors: Red" by Krzysztof Kieslowski, and received the "Palme d'Or".
"Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" (1992)
David Lynch, again. The film prequel to the TV series "Twin Peaks" can be considered a strange adventure of the director, but with the right mindset doubt his greatness remains.
This is a film about people who experience sexual satisfaction from beating machines. Perhaps one of the greatest works of David Cronenberg was booed at Cannes for a clear immorality.
"Inglourious Basterds" (2009)
How loud was the indignation during the show's first epic film Quentin Tarantino's World War II, it is not known. But one thing is certain: the critics greeted "Inglourious Basterds", to put it mildly, cool. The painting eventually became a hit and is considered one of the best works of Tarantino.
