Critic Reviews for The Twentieth Century

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • The jokes are often ridiculous, as is pretty much everything else that happens, but there's a palpable energy and visual inventiveness on display that keeps things watchable

  • Take those Canadian history books, pile them up with maple-tree bark and set them ablaze.

  • A killer ensemble featuring Sean Cullen, Sarianne Cormier and Louis Negin rounds out this bizarrely beautiful biopic for a history lesson you'll never forget.

    Sep 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • This balls-to-the-wall phantasmagoria of maple syrup soaked ridiculousness is unlike anything we've seen.

  • We should hope all biopics are like this one: absurd, more than a little deranged, turning people's insides to the outside (metaphorically), examining the essence of this point in Canadian time, and playing with cinematic norms to great effect.

  • ... this story of a shoe-sniffing bureaucrat with a particular knack for seal clubbing, is simultaneously new and familiar. Much like the best of Guy Maddin.
