OK, here's Guy Maddin's incredible 6 minute short film from 2000.
This gives you an idea of what to expect from his other shorts and his feature films.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAbtEQxFow4
I was glad to see someone had posted this on YouTube.
I'm a huge fan of Maddin's work. I sat through his 2002 version of 'Dracula' at the theater three times in one day.
THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD was about as close to a mainstream film as he's gotten. Personally I'm glad he went right back to making stuff like BRAND UPON THE BRAIN! and COWARDS BEND THE KNEE.
Disclaimer: Some people hate his movies like poison.
