All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

Even without prior knowledge of our neighbor to the north, it can be enjoyed for its combination of supreme creativity, jaw-dropping audacity and amusing tongue-in-cheek dialogue.

The jokes are often ridiculous, as is pretty much everything else that happens, but there's a palpable energy and visual inventiveness on display that keeps things watchable

Take those Canadian history books, pile them up with maple-tree bark and set them ablaze.

A killer ensemble featuring Sean Cullen, Sarianne Cormier and Louis Negin rounds out this bizarrely beautiful biopic for a history lesson you'll never forget.

September 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The Twentieth Century is tightly styled and sometimes indulges itself a little too much, but its astute deadpan comedy and careful character-building always get it back on track.
