With his latest work, MY WINNIPEG, iconoclastic filmmaker Guy Maddin continues in the freewheeling, genre-bending tradition that has made him one of Canada's most consistently intriguing and internationally respected artists. MY WINNIPEG is a documentary (or docu-fantasia, as he describes it) about his hometown. Equal parts mystical rumination and personal history, city chronicle and deranged post-Freudian proletarian fantasy, MY WINNIPEG - which is framed as a goodbye letter - blends local myth with childhood trauma. Somehow, it all feels seamlessly assembled, utterly if perversely logical-a beautifully personal meditation on belief and truth, memory and myth. A deliriously layered provocation, MY WINNIPEG is outrageous, informative and wildly entertaining.
