Movie Reviews

A Neglected Treasure
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's a real shame more people don't know about this film; for art-film lovers, it's a true must see. Coming out of Canada in 1970, the only film made by writer/director Gordon Sheppard, it won numerous awards upon release, then fell into apparent obscurity. The story is that of a young woman's search for love, of how she finds it and then, tragically, loses it. This simple plot description does not do justice, however, to the film's deeply felt lyrical beauty. With enough surrealistic touches to satisfy any fan of Fellini, it also packs a real emotional wallop. What more can I say? Track it down. Buy it. Enjoy. You won't be sorry."
Horrible DVD of excellent film
Scott Andrew Hutchins | Bronx, NY, USA | 10/07/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I have this on a tape that is nearly unwatchable, but I stuck it out and found it rewarding viewing. I was excited to get this DVD, which I assumed even at a budget price and likely too heavily compressed, particularly given that the film runs an even two hours, would be an imporvement on that tape, but I was horribly mistaken. The sound is so distorted as to be nearly indecipherable, and an unlistenable film is even worse than a difficult to watch film. It's a shame someone hasn't seen the value of this film enough to give it a decent release."
Forgotten Masterpiece

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The only movie made by a genius director from Canada, comparable from this perspective to "The Caroussel of Souls," recently released by Criterion. This arthouse gem is an extraordinary blend of Fellini and Kubrick (you will be surprised to see what inspired him in his last movie, "Eyes Wide Shut"). Highly recommended for all real movie buffs and connoisseurs, and not only! Criterion Collection should take a look at this brilliant work of art as well, and release it in the format it deserves."
