The Saddest Music in the World Regie Guy Maddin
Guy Maddin has reached a new expressive plateau with The Saddest Music in the World. It reprises the key elements of his previous work — the look and feel of scratchy late silents and early talkies (mainly black and white, with a few lush interludes in two-strip Technicolor) and themes involving Canada, amnesia and other forms of repression, war and wartime loss, oedipal conflict, mutilation, and unabated romantic despair — all touched with deadpan comedy and melodramatic excess.

Lovingly cobbled together from his treasure-trove of obsessions and memories, Maddin’s filmmaking — much as it has for Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino — exemplifies movie love at its most ecstatic.

Guy Maddin’s latest extravaganza, improbably adapted from an original screenplay by Kazuo Ishiguro, is the best Big Broadcast ever—a stompin’ mishmash, 100 minutes of demented vaudeville and murky montage, spasmodic violence and even splatter.
