My Winnipeg


(Guy Maddin, 2008).
Guy Maddin’s confessional bargain-basement phantasmagoria transforms his wintry hometown into a city as mysterious as Feuillade’s Paris—a dream dump of labyrinthine alleyways, mysterious monuments, and peculiar landmarks. The editing is dense, the action is fluid and, just as actual newsreels blend with the filmmaker’s expert reconstructions, so local history merges with extravagant invention.
