My Dad is 100 Years Old

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.


here's isabella Rossellini in "My Dad is 100 Years Old", which is very good but not as good as "The Heart of the World", another short.


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.
