By now you've probably caught on that a number of us at Cinematical are fans of Guy Maddin's silent masterpiece, Brand Upon the Brain!, which James Rocchi reviewed as part of TIFF. I tried to urge you all to travel to Europe to see the experience for yourself. Luckily, Kim Voynar then shared that before it goes into a regular run with a soundtrack by Isabella Rossellini, it will play in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles with a "live 11-piece orchestra, a five-person live foley team creating special sound effects on stage, a live celebrity narrator, and a castrato performing along with the film."

If our kind words and urges aren't enough, the movie is starting to list its celebrity narrators. Holy crap, as lucky and honored as I feel to have seen the debut, I really, really want to head to Gotham and see all of the great names lined up. (As if Guy Maddin presenting wasn't enough.) Are you ready? The narrators for New York are, in order, Crispin Glover, Anne Jackson, Eli Wallach, Joie Lee, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Justin Bond, John Ashbery, Tunde Adebimpe, Edward Hibbert, Peter Scarlet and Isabella Rossellini. Glover will then head to Chicago for a handful of shows, and then there's L.A., where no one has been listed yet. And, if you're in San Francisco, you can check out Joan Chen narrating that is part of SFIFF. This is your chance... Don't pass it up!
