Critic Reviews for My Winnipeg
Guy Maddin docu about his hometown gives fans everything they'd expect, plus a few moments of unexpected sincerity.
Maddin is a real film-maker with a confident, fluent movie language that is evolving in fascinating directions.
The best way to take My Winnipeg is with a box of popcorn and a grain of salt.
Audience Reviews for My Winnipeg
One of the most inventive, unique, surreal, contemplative movies I have ever seen.
A visual poem about... well, Winnipeg. A fascinating projection of Guy Maddin's memories and personal mythologies about the city where he was born and raised, juxtaposed upon a fantastical recount of historical facts and urban legends with his trademark silent film aesthetic, grainy and ethereal. It's self-indulgent perhaps, but watching it is enrapturing like discovering a completely new world. A perfect example of how realities become extraordinary when observed through an extraordinary prism.
It sounds weird, but this is just the type of film I'd make if I were a filmmaker. It's like the dude voiced out my deepest, darkest, insomniacest sentiments and filmed it in a sort of hyper-nostalgic, Caligari surreal docudrama. It's a perfect homage to a weirdo town and you get the feeling the guy really, really loves living there. This is a GOOD movie.
