Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in United States
Booed at Cannes

Booed at Cannes
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK  •  BAM  •  Ongoing

Another year, another scandal at the Cannes Film Festival. Contemporary filmmakers take heart—among the directors who have felt the wrath of the French festival’s fickle audiences are titans like Antonioni, Bresson, Truffaut, and Fellini. Many of their works, now heralded as masterpieces, were first met with incomprehension, disdain, and deafening jeers.

In this series, BAMcinématek gathers some of the most notorious films maudits, many of which are now revered as masterpieces. Two notable American examples are Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976) and David Lynch's Wild at Heart (1990).
