Wally Hammond
Little White Lies

A bravura journey into a noirish nightmare world and a lock that even paid-up Maddinites won't be able to pick on a single viewing.

Strangled by its own nostalgic mad love.

Maddin has always been something of an acquired taste - and he seems to be doing his utmost to keep it that way.

This rousing and tormented monochrome tale of a deadbeat gangster making an unusual odyssey through his haunted home is sordid, sinister and bafflingly brilliant.

Shadows on the Wall

While it's playfully inventive, it's also aggravatingly elusive

Still too self-referential, too hermetic and too glacial to offer much enjoyment beyond the gorgeous monochrome visuals.

Keyhole is an enchantment of chiaroscuro compositions which float across the screen like a dream; it's an acquired taste but pure cinema nevertheless.

Empire Magazine

A peculiar film rich with varying tones and styles. It's not hard to see why Maddin has been deemed Canada's answer to David Lynch.

Total Film

Though self-referential to a fault, the deadpan humour, frayed logic and monochrome dazzle cast their own richly peculiar spell.

Maddin bathes it in his usual weirdness.

It's an exhausting feature, richly made yet punishing and baffling in a manner that doesn't invite further discussion. I suppose Maddin fans wouldn't want it any other way.

Patric's performance is a deadpan treat. His can-do, take-charge character is in continual zany contrast to his surreal surroundings.

'Keyhole" is the first Guy Maddin movie that feels as if it got only halfway out of the director's head and onto the screen.

Reeling Reviews

The film is creepy, depraved and often funny and Maddin's most perverse outing since "Tales from the Gimli Hospital," but although it compels through most of its running time, it doesn't quite sustain through the home stretch.

Funny enough to be disarming even when it's spinning its wheels thematically.

A Maddin film has a disturbing way of always seeming to exist in the present, like a dream. You know what happened and you even know what will happen, but you also see it all shifting and changing.

Characteristically full of some beautiful and evocative images, Maddin's latest film seems doggedly intent on achieving art status merely through obfuscation.

Think of "Keyhole" as an avant-garde melodrama to cleanse you palate of all of the insipid Hollywood crap you've ever seen over the years. You need it.

Like Maddin's melancholic and relatively more conventional My Winnipeg, Keyhole is about a memory house, but one that is even more fragmented, mythical and elusive.

Amid the mythical allusions and the climate of decay, "Keyhole" overthinks its exploration of memory and forgiveness.
