"In the late Roger Ebert's review of The Saddest Music in the World, he states, "You have never seen a film like this before, unless you have seen other films by Guy Maddin". Needless to say, I agree. Maddin is probably one of the more relentlessly inventive filmmakers of the modern era, and The Saddest Music in the World. Is one of his greats. Anyone familiar with his films like Brand Upon the Brain! or My Winnipeg knows that he has a fascination for the silent film aesthetic - particularly Sovi"

"A weird and experimental delight. Probably the least mainstream film on this list. "

" Lent to me by a listal friend :) Personally I find Guy Maddin's films (well, the two I've seen anyway) to be very visually interesting. The way he's able to make a film truly look as though it just came out of some vault after being lost since 1930 or so is fascinating to me. (Though I eventually did begin to wonder just how many jars of Vaseline he used on those lenses.) The Saddest Music in the World strikes me as something of a triumph in its ability to recreate and commemorate cinema of t"

" I very glad that I watched "My Winnipeg" (2007) before I watched this film as it works well as a prologue to this film. So, if you have seen "My Winnipeg" this film is done in very much the same surrealist grainy film footage style. However, this film has a linear, if somewhat strange, storyline. While I liked the idea of a full feature semi-surrealist work, so far I still prefer Guy Maddin's shorter features."
