Drama
Attention, Guy Maddin fans! This is the Guy Maddinest film of the year! If you enjoy this Canadian filmmaker’s surreal take on silent cinema, you’ll probably enjoy this biopic/documentary/fantasy film about the city he loves, and his life within it. Combining the real story of Winnipeg with a surreal story about a town ruled by naked prostitutes, Freemasons, “hairless boner boys” and the Page 3 girl from the Socialist daily, Maddin creates a beautiful, visually stunning, sometimes intensely imaginative, and frequently deadly boring cinematic presentation. Self-indulgent, narcissistic and intermittently funny, My Winnipeg is the perfect film for Guy Maddin fans and those looking to nap in an air-conditioned theater.
