    The best way to take this film is with a box of popcorn and a grain of salt. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This autobiographical meditation is seductively funny, as well as deliciously strange, and hauntingly beautiful, as well as stream-of-consciousness cockeyed. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Ann Savage, the femme fatale from a slew of old Hollywood noirs, is savagely funny as Maddin's beauty-parlor proprietress mom. show more

    Hilarious for those on Maddin's mad wavelength and more varied than his strictly fictional features. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    (1) Shot for shot, Maddin can be as surprising and delightful as any filmmaker has ever been, and (2) he is an acquired taste, but please, sir, may I have some more? show more

    So it should come as no surprise that what Maddin eventually produced is a film about HIS Winnipeg, a psychological terrain that's no more -- nor less -- "real" than William Carlos William's Paterson or Marcel Proust's Combray. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Deeply personal, wryly funny and fantastically cinematic. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Maddin's Winnipeg is a rich, funky, funny stew of fears and desires, of mangled civic chronology mashed up with hothouse private emotions. This is a secret history, and it's a wonder. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Mock-heroic yet still lyrical, faux-mythic but honest too, uniquely and absurdly and often hilariously Canadian, My Winnipeg is like no documentary you've ever seen. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Guy Maddin's films are always delightful, but his latest, My Winnipeg, has an added treat for film buffs: It features Ann Savage! show more
