In the narration Maddin claims that Winnipeg has ten times as many sleepwalkers as any other city in the world, and though he's surely making this up, it conveys his own sense of entrapment amid the town's dreaminess.

Much of what Maddin asserts as truth is balderdash. He was not, for example, born in the locker room of the local hockey team's arena.

Weird, fascinating and uproarious, My Winnipeg takes place not in chilly Manitoba but in the dreamscape of Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin's overheated imagination.

The film, shot in black and white, like most of Maddin's creations, is a treat for fans and a migraine for the uninitiated or terminally dull.

This haunting phantasmagoria of a film -- comic, singular, surreal -- is not only something no one but the Canadian director could have made, it's also a film no one else would have even wanted to make. Which is the heart of its appeal.

This autobiographical meditation is seductively funny, as well as deliciously strange, and hauntingly beautiful, as well as stream-of-consciousness cockeyed.

My Winnipeg, which combines archival documentary images with freshly shot passages, is more concerned with lyrical truth than with literal accuracy.

You're unlikely to find an easier entry into Maddin's wild world than this black-and-white 'docu-fantasia', a dryly funny, cheerfully false autobiography.

My Winnipeg is Maddin's best filmmaking since the not-dissimilar confessional bargain-basement phantasmagoria, Cowards Bend the Knee. The editing is dense; the action is fluid.

My Winnipeg is overloaded and digressive -- it comes with the territory -- but it's also grounded in a place, Maddin's Manitoban hometown, and it's painfully engrossing.

Deep, rich sound accompanies distressed, often unfocused black-and-white shots of nighttime winter streets, garishly lit interiors and archival footage. Splashes of color in cut-out animation segs add to the texture.

Holding its hallucinatory blend of archival footage, animation and skewed recreations of scenes from Maddin's childhood together is the director's inspired, entertaining narration.
