Dreams! Visions! Madness!

Part silent film, part dream you have after eating spoiled sushi. A veritable anthology nesting doll. Does it have poisonous skeleton leotards? Yes. Virgin volcano sacrifices? Check. Instructional videos on how to take a bath? Clearly. A linear storyline? No. I know what you’re thinking. Is this a Canadian film? Obviously. It is the portal to deeper understanding. The Mystery of the Inner Self laid bare. It's a pretty good movie.

Filled with absurd nonsense from start to finish, but my god is it fun - not to mention visually mindblowing. Guy Maddin at his best.
