Guy Maddin as His Strangest Character Yet—Himself

Crazy Canuck cinema junkie Guy Maddin is the mad scientist of the Great North’s cinematic underground. So it’s hysterical fun to see him playing a fictional version of himself in this wacked-out silent sci-fi memoir, set in a spooky lighthouse. When it premiered in New York two years ago, kindred spirits read the narration live. For the DVD, Criterion packs in seven alternate narration tracks read by Maddin and buddies Isabella Rossellini, Laurie Anderson, Joshn Ashberry, and Crispin Glover.
