It seems like there's a lot of conflicting information about Shadows being at Cannes. Some say it won the critics award there but to my knowledge that was at Venice. I don't think it actually showed at Cannes. I just checked the Cannes website and it isn't mentioned anywhere. I may well be wrong though.
Anyway, just watched
Strange film. The cast, theme, director, pretty much everything about this film should've made it an absolute winner. It's not bad just a bit underwhelming, in a way that no film set on the US-Mexican border in the late 70s and starring Warren Oates, Jack Nicholson and Harvey Keitel has any right to be.
