It may be Guy Maddins best film. Its certainly his most personal a typically Maddinesque blend of mock-doc and eerie tone poem in which the filmmaker takes a sentimental journey back to his Canadian hometown, a place of ghostly hockey players, the White Block House where he grew up, underground rivers, frozen horses heads protruding from the ice, and snow, lots of snow. He was right to get away from there. Maddins casting of actor Ann Savage (cult favorite star of Edgar Ulmers Detour) as his mother is masterstroke (80 min.).
