The Green Fog
First screened in April 2018
Directors: Guy Maddin, Galen Johnson, and Evan Johnson. Experimental collage reconstructing a fitfully loyal facsimile of Vertigo from clips of dozens of other movies. Twitter Capsule:
Often I love Maddin films for 20 minutes before I start feeling strangled and annoyed. This time I lasted about five.
I could articulate a logic for my rejection of this one, but it's probably a taste thing above all else. If you think you'd enjoy it, go on!
Points for effort, I suppose, and for delighting most viewers more than it did me. But what is really new here, or really at stake, or really fun?
