The McConaissance may be over, if critics at Cannes have anything to say about. His latest film, Gus Van Sant’s "Sea of Trees," has come out of well publicized boos from its first screening to score the lowest rating on Screen’s annual festival jury rankings… in 12 years.
Getting just a 0.6 (out of a possible 4), it’s the worst showing since 2003’s "Les Cotelettes," which had a 0.3.
Who’s leading the chart? That would be Van Sant’s fellow new queer cinema auteur Todd Haynes.
