CICFF: The Twentieth Century

Wed, Feb 26 / 9 pm
ADDED SCREENINGS:
Sun, Mar 1 / 3 pm & 5 pm
Directed by Matthew Rankin
2019, Canada, 90 min

Special encore engagement of Matthew Rankin’s insane laugh riot.

An incendiary send-up of Canadian identity, history, and politics, Matthew Rankin’s insanely brilliant feature debut is a hilariously irreverent, visually stunning retelling of how William Lyon Mackenzie King became Prime Minister… King seems destined to earn Canada’s crown, but just how much debasement and degradation must an ambitious young politician endure in such a noble pursuit? Quite a lot, it seems. Particularly when the affection of an unattainable woman becomes his priority. Along his epic journey, King will encounter devastating heartbreak, fascistic corruption, hilarious diversions to the outsider cities of Vancouver and Winnipeg, and… kinky boot sniffing. – VIFF

Reviews

A CULT CLASSIC. The Twentieth Century melts the transcendental style of Eraserhead, classical Hollywood and Duck Soup’s physical comedy into one rancid puddle of Rankin’s Old-style Canadian Maple Walnut Ice Cream Cinema. It’s Canadian expressionism at its wildest and most beautiful.
