What are people saying?

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Death of a Lumberjack

    This film tries to do so much: confront piles of social issues, pose as a mystery-thriller, as well as the clichéd young girl moves to the big city to be a star, as well as a gratuitous skin flick, ...and finally culminates into a mash-up of near-camp, with a feminist exclamation. I feel out of the loop here; something very Québécois is going on that I'm not aware of, but Carle has certainly piqued my interest.
