Tales from the Gimli Hospital Reviews
As Maddin's first feature, it's obvious he's working with a very limited budget, his technique is still a little raw, and the story gets away from him every now and then. But his mad creativity and twisted humor are already running rampant. Early signs of Maddin hallmarks: solitude, cutting flesh, homeroticism, snow (OK, this time it's feathers). And most importantly, his ability to create a surreal but still totally believable other world. This one will definitely stay with me.
