  1. elif jazel's rating of the film Spanky: To The Pier and Back

    Maddins rapid editing style is not my thing. but as a pug owner I should say this film took me to a pugs world of curiosity.

  2. Jason's rating of the film Spanky: To The Pier and Back

    Something of a homage to Oskar Fischinger's Walking from Munich to Berlin, Maddin's short is a brisk, edited-in-camera movie about the last walk he took w/ the aged and ailing dog Spanky. It is an ode to nature, life, and, with all sincerity, friendship. This is the kind of cinema that life coughs up now and then like a little, crystalline treasure. Perhaps the least pretentious li'l avant-garde movie conceivable.
