Visionary Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin pays tribute to his beloved hometown with this goodbye letter and self-described "docu-fantasia" that is equal parts transcendental rumination, historical chronicle, and personal portrait. In the first segment, Maddin's camera drifts dreamlike through crowded trains as a floating kielbasa hangs from the ceiling and the director/narrator ponders just why the city boasts the most sleepwalkers per capita of any major international city. Later, the viewer is treated to images of numerous historical monuments in the city as they learn about such key historical events as the Winnipeg General Strike, the defeat of the Winnipeg Jets, and even the Golden Boy pageant scandal and a racetrack tragedy that found numerous horses sent to an icy death. As the third and final segment gets underway, the director draws inspiration from filmmaker William Castle to present pivotal -- and often traumatic -- events from his childhood that left an indelible mark while simultaneously serving to mold his unique vision of his beloved Winnipeg. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Some New Trailer For My Winnipeg
New Review For Movie My WinnipegGuy Maddin docu about his hometown gives fans everything they'd expect, plus a few moments of unexpected sincerity.
John DeFore-Hollywood Reporter
The best way to take My Winnipeg is with a box of popcorn and a grain of salt.
Ruthe Stein-San Francisco Chronicle
This is a secret history, and it's a wonder.
Ty Burr-Boston Globe
An affecting, dreamy, Chris Marker-esque, ciné-essay.
Wally Hammond-Time Out
My Winnipeg is a mobile collage, and its assemblage is fascinating.
Stanley Kauffmann-The New Republic
The world would be a better place if every city had its Maddin.
Michael Upchurch-Seattle Times
Presented with such dreamlike flourish and humor that watching the movie is extremely entertaining.
Jeffrey Chen-Window to the Movies
Maddin's exploration of his dysfunctional family life mirrors the crumbling facade of this major city. The symbolism is potent; the skill with which Maddin applies it, masterful.
Leaves one alternately giddy and groggy
Fernando F. Croce-CinePassion
It's so personal and so funny and so moving. Guy Maddin uses cinematic arts and crafts to convey his feelings about his home town
Andrew L. Urban-Urban Cinefile
It'll stay with you and haunt you in the best possible way long after you left the cinema.
My Winnipeg is too funny and touching to be labeled purely experimental. It's magical, but the type of movie magic all can enjoy, if they only take a walk through the winter wonderland known as Winnipeg.
Steve Ramos-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Maddin is a real film-maker with a confident, fluent movie language that is evolving in fascinating directions.
Peter Bradshaw-Guardian [UK]
A film that makes what would seem like a mundane documentary into a funny, charming, relatable and interesting exploration of Maddin's home.
This love/hate tribute to [director Maddin's] hometown is one of the year's weirdest, most memorable 80 minutes of celluloid.
Robert W. Butler-Kansas City Star
Given its unusual blend of fact and fiction, the film is a real head-scratcher. Like most -- if not all -- of Maddin's films, it's as bewildering as it is visually arresting. And yes, that means it's an acquired taste.
Jeff Vice-Deseret News, Salt Lake City
It's actually Maddin's most accessible film, and underneath the surreal images and foreboding narration is a relatively familiar message: You can go home again. And if you do, feel free to take some creative liberties here and there.
Rob Thomas-Capital Times (Madison, WI)
Maddin translated his befuddlement of Winnipeg to me, but not his fascination.
Phil Villarreal-Arizona Daily Star
Maddin creates a rich tapestry weaving together fact and fiction.
Matt Brunson-Creative Loafing
A soft, drifting dream of a motion picture.
Lawrence Toppman-Charlotte Observer
It's sometimes uneven, but it's glorious, too, with constantly churning invention and the guarantee that you have never seen anything like it before -- unless it came from Winnipeg and Guy Maddin.
Maddin's weird, beautiful, funny and entertaining look at his hometown is probably about as personal and revealing as he's ever likely to get.
Jeffrey M. Anderson-Combustible Celluloid
Despite the film's incredible specificity as one man's take on one city, the wistful My Winnipeg achieves a powerful universality.
Peter Canavese-Groucho Reviews
Superbly made, frequently funny and surprisingly moving, Guy Maddin's weird and wonderful semi-documentary is a genuine treat.
