Critic Reviews for Souvenir of Canada

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

For the most part, [Coupland's] far too fascinated with minutiae to offer any meaningful insights, and he's downright woeful at his attempts at stand-up humour.

Though Coupland is a postmodernist, he gives in to certain coercive generalizations.

May 26, 2006 | Rating: 2/4

This is a surprisingly endearing documentary that attempts to explain Canadian culture, and while it's a bit odd as a movie, it's quite wonderful as some sort of national artifact.
