Cannes 2017: 'Alive in France' Review

Abel Ferrara isn't my idea of a master storyteller, but I was pretty pleased with his concert film Alive in France. The concept: In conjunction with a French retrospective of his oeuvre last October, he decided to stage some concerts of the songs from his films. It's a freewheeling behind-the-scenes look at the shows. My review is up at Screen International.
