Seances by Guy Maddin

Yes, Guy Maddin, Canada's answer to the question 'Aren't there any weird Canadians?', has done it again. His take on Dracula is well worth seeing, but then all his movies are rich and strange. Now he's made an online movie that's never the same twice. Don't ask me how, it just shuffles things like intertitles and scenes. It's 15-20 mins.

Check it out here.

Thank you for posting this. Guy Maddin is one of my favorite directors. If there is anything predictable about his work it's that it's unpredictable. You really never know what the ultimate outcome of his "stories" will be. His Dracula ballet film is probably his most accessible work and even that is pretty loopy, although beautifully made (in Super8mm!). While their works are totally different, his approach to film reminds me of Peter Greenaway and Ken Russell.
