Parallax View

... an utterly demented melodrama tale of the repressed residents of a small alpine village who live in virtual silence...

It's certainly an astounding film for its purely spectacular terms.

An acquired taste, Maddin is an unusually precise director who leaves little to chance. Whether one finds his approach too careful or just stunningly controlled will be up to individual cineastes.

In part a hilarious satire about Canadian timidity, it also comes across periodically as a formalist gem about nothing at all.

Careful is one long and amusing pun on German Expressionistic film imagery, Freudian psychology and quasi-Wagnerian storytelling, all carried to absurdist lengths.

There's something wonderfully unique about the project but the reasons for doing it remain buried.

Careful, the hilariously bizarre new film from Canadian director Guy Maddin, is like some lost masterpiece from a time-warped alternative dimension -- a strange artifact that time forgot.

Too strange for its own good, Careful is less interesting as a film than it is as a Canadian cinematic anomaly.
