The Quintessential Guy Maddin! [DVD collection]

Five films by Guy Maddin

“BIZARRELY TOUCHING, FUNNY, AND LITERALLY FABULOUS! If you’re willing to try some serious travel in the cinematic space-time continuum, hop on board one of Maddin’s starships.”
–David Cronenberg

The Quintessential Guy Maddin! Four-Disc Set boasts five of director Guy Maddin’s most hallucinatory and hilarious fever-dreams. The beloved auteur of Winnipeg, Canada, Maddin has been spinning fantastic tales of obsessive love and grand guignol with the language of cinema’s distant past for more than two decades. Wretched swan feeders, beauty-parlor noir, incestuous psychodramas, ghostly patriarchs, fascist butler academies, midnight-summer fantasia and hyperbolic Soviet montage are all part and parcel of the delirious cracked-glass, scratched-frame universe of this visionary filmmaker.
