Brand Upon the Brain!

Rated NR 95 minutes 2007

In Guy Maddin's latest piece of deranged heterosexual camp, a housepainter named Guy Maddin comes home after thirty years to fulfill his dying mother's request that he repaint the lighthouse where she used to run a sinister orphanage and all the kids had mysterious holes in their heads. Additional intrigues involve a teenage sleuth who poses as her own brother. Narrated by Isabella Rossellini and enhanced by Jason Staczek's superb score, this is characteristically intense and, unlike most of Maddin's silent-movie models, frenetically edited.
