The Saddest Music in the World (2003)

In Depression-era Winnipeg, a legless beer baroness hosts a contest for the saddest music in the world, offering a grand prize of $25,000.


What a great movie. What is it about? Sadness as performance, the ridiculousness of pathos, the absurdity of personal drama–maybe. Funny and weird but a bit hard to peg.
