It appears that Peter Greenaway has a new film out this year, it is called 'Goltzius and the Pelican Company'.
I remember that he did a couple of interviews where he said that : "cinema was dead.". He was more into multimedia and so on.
On another note, Barry Norman made 'The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover' his film of the year in 1989. He also put it on to his Top 10 films of the 1980s.
I seem to recall that it did cause a little of controversy back in its day, what with the violence, sex and the final scene.
