fun at the guy maddin retrospective.
i'm an enormous fan of the work of guy maddin, canadian filmmaker and psychologically masochistic genius.
so i was enormously overjoyed when metro cinema held a retrospective of maddin's work the week before last.
so overjoyed, in fact, that i went to every screening. most of the films i had seen before on DVD, but maddin's films really demand a theatrical treatment more than most.
my favourite guy maddin film is "The Saddest Music in the World", which is absolutely hilarious and tragic. i cannot recommend the film strenuously enough.
