“An intense and explosive sensory experience; An elegant delirium that injects vigor into contemporary cinema by returning faith to the power of the imagination.”~Luis Fernando Galván, En Filme

Aroview: Maverick director Guy Maddin applies his wild and deliciously demented imagination to this fantastic fantasy, telling a range of almost indecipherable stories involving a submarine crew, a lumberjack, a skeleton orgy and an educational video on how to take a bath. Fans won't be disappointed, but it's also as good a place as any to start if you're unfamiliar with the director's incredible filmography, characterised as always by a fetishistic love of silent-era cinema.
