Guy Maddin’s “The Heart of the World”

You may have noticed that when I’m preoccupied with other pursuits but still want to keep this blog current and flush with content, I resort to posting links to films on ye ol’ YouTube. Thus, I give you Guy Maddin’s masterpiece “The Heart of the World” (2000), a short film that, believe it or not, will figure into my forthcoming “favorites of the decade” list. I’d seriously love to know what UW-Madison’s resident über-expert on Russian cinema, Professor Vance Kepley, Jr., thinks of Maddin’s eccentric homage to Soviet montage. Enjoy.
