Guy Maddin’s “The Heart of the World”

December 28, 2009

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.
