first_imgXavier Dolan is just settling in for a Riviera beachfront interview with several Toronto movie critics at the Cannes Film Festival when he’s suddenly interrupted by noisy laughter from another group.“They’re having a lot of fun,” the Montreal filmmaker says without skipping a beat. “Should we laugh?”That’s a good question, not only regarding the nearby chortlers but also for the oft-combative director/actor/screenwriter himself, who at this very moment is unsure about whether he should even smile. This group interview in Cannes last May is happening the day after the world premiere of It’s Only the End of the World, a dysfunctional family drama Dolan calls “my best film” — his others include Mommy and I Killed My Mother — but which many critics called the worst among the 21 competing for the Palme d’Or.
