Reviews

“I loved the way it uses expressionist tropes and subverted thing…a little bit Monty Python… ” – Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo’s Film Review 

“It ends up being a smashingly good and goofball history of the non-world of Canadian history and flim-flammery, deeply committed to its own colonial crazy.” – Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle
