| Nothing Too Special
"Parade" was the final film directed by Jacques Tati. It was made for television and featured Tati as a clown in a circus. The film was screened at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival, but was not entered into the main competition.

As much as it pains me to say something bad about Jacques Tati, this is far from his best work. In fact, it more or less amounts to a televised special about a circus filled with mimes and acrobats. Should it be judged on the same level as the other films he made? No. Because, clearly, it was not intended for the same level of criticism. We do not judge Michael Bay for his milk commercials.

Still a bit fun, even if the costumes are so obviously dated as the 1970s.
