SF360: Francois Ozon, mortal

By Indiewire | Indiewire August 4, 2006 at 8:13AM

With "Time to Leave," his ninth feature, Francois Ozon demonstrates yet again just how central a figure he has become to modern European cinema and reminds us, yet again, that he's one of gay world cinema's most accomplished writer/directors. His distinctive style smoothly crosses melodrama with naughtiness, plays with genre, and stamps every work with a deeply personal mise-en-scene and look --mincluding, with "Time to Leave," his first use of CinemaScope. B. Ruby Rich reports in SF360.
