Film Festivals 1992

The festival this year was spiced with some real gems including David Cronenberg's take on William S Burroughs' underground classic "Naked Lunch", Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro's bizarrely inspired "Delicatessen", John McNaughton's disturbing "Henry - Portrait of a Serial killer", Wim Wenders' epic "Until the End of the World", the thought-provoking "Rapture" and Lars Von Trier's stunning, hypnotic "Zentropa" (right).
