Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Saddest Music in the World

3.1 stars. More over-cooked and stilted than how I like Maddin, which is rapturous and dreamy. I appreciate the almost DADA/ situationist approach to political discourse, but any ideas here are only ever sparky ambivalent gestures. You shouldn't be prepared to take much away from it. Also - and I hate to say it - I just don't think Mark McKinney is any good here. However, it is a lovely title to have in one's résumé.
