Seen: June 5/07 at the Elgin Theatre
Reason to see: Guy Maddin silent film shown for 1 night at the gorgeous Elgin theatre with live narration, musicians and foley artists. Um, yes - I will be going! This also counts as week 24/52 for See 1 film a week in the theatre for a year.
This was amazing. Spectacular. Wonderous. No one can create worlds like Guy Maddin can. The atmosphere of nostalgia, the powerful emotions, the unlikely yet captivating plot. Every moment is brilliant. It's all in a flurry and with a bizarre set of characters you find yourself possibly trying to catch every moment, when you really just need to settle back and let it all unfold, and unfold it does. One of the most remarkable films I have ever seen.
Shannon's Overall View:
It was one of the most amazing film experiences - ever!
I'll buy it
I highly recommend it
