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

Uniquely weird, subtly macabre, and utterly compelling.

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.
