  • In Focus: Bill Plympton's 'Animation Lollapalooza'

Swedish vampires, contagious Spanish cannibals, feudal female Korean crime-solvers and general Japanese insanity have never been a big part of the Disney world, but they are the meat and potatoes (mostly meat) of Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival, the 12th edition of which was held July 3-21.

  • Palme d'Or winner: Jerry Schatzberg


    Jerry Schatzberg had just directed Al Pacino's breakthrough performance in The Panic In Needle Park when he wrangled Pacino - and co-star Gene Hackman - for Scarecrow, a character study of two footloose drifters. The film went on to win the Palme d'Or in 1973: Schatzberg has since been back to Cannes so many times that 'I feel like one of the family'.
