  1. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Cowards Bend the Knee or The Blue Hands

    You need 5 seconds to see it's Maddin. Impossible to mistake with anything else. There is everything you can expect from him - it's weird, surreal, grotesque, looks like an old tape from twenties found somewhere in the attic (while exploring WaxMen museum of course). But for some reason I don't feel it's as good as it could have been.

  2. matelot's rating of the film Cowards Bend the Knee or The Blue Hands

  3. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Cowards Bend the Knee or The Blue Hands

    Many of his films are about layered places, in an era of non-spaces without history.

  4. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Cowards Bend the Knee or The Blue Hands

    surreal fisting. what more do you want?!

  5. El Biffo's rating of the film Cowards Bend the Knee or The Blue Hands

    Originally a "peep-hole installation", this film is must-see if you love "naughty" silent cinema AND ice hockey! With a nod to "The Hands of Orlac".

  6. Ike Cinecult's rating of the film Cowards Bend the Knee or The Blue Hands

    In my opinion Maddin's most expressive film, with over the top editing.
