More school shooting-related controversy. This time, it was Gus Van Sant's turn to make heads, er, turn...and, despite the inevitable fretting of a post-Columbine world, he and his peeps crew left with the Palme d'Or.
The win didn't translate to a huge global audience for Van Sant's understated, quirky, disturbing and yet oddly redemptive little gem. Critically, it did just fine, but still hardly anybody actually went out and saw it. Odd.
If you number amongst those cruelly denied, we heartily recommend you give it a crack.
