Someone once described his films as "Tim Burton for eggheads" which seems apt. By all accounts, he is very friendly and down-to-earth in person, so that's good.
My favorite filmmaker... it's a strange how utterly beautiful his movies are!
He's truly a visionary. :3
I met him at the American premiere of "Keyhole" at the Wexner Center for the Arts, and he was an extremely friendly, extremely intelligent personality. Not only is Maddin one of the best filmmakers working today, and definitely one of my heroes, but he is also a wonderful human being.
Such an awesome individual.
Hahaha, I love the quote.
what's the best Maddin film to start with?
which film should be my first?

I agree with you Joriah. Two different entities.
Also, where is Sombra Dolorsa???
If you ask me, for such an original filmmaker, being called the "David Lynch of Canada" is an insult.
the heart of the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of the most auteury auteurs in recent memory.
One of the most unusual and fun directors to watch. Saw 'My Winnipeg' with him narrating live. It was amazing. Works in dreams.
