Guy Maddin’s My Win­nipeg ac­knowl­edged as clas­sic by Cri­te­rion

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

CRI­TE­RION Col­lec­tion, the art-house DVD distrib­u­tor beloved by film afi­ciona­dos, will add Guy Maddin’s My Win­nipeg to its lengthy list of cin­e­matic clas­sics in Jan­uary. My Win­nipeg, the surreal, black-and-white quasi-doc­u­men­tary about Maddin’s home­town, will be avail­able in a new high-def­i­ni­tion dig­i­tal restora­tion on DVD and Blu­ray, and will in­clude such spe­cial fea­tures as cine-es­says by the di­rec­tor on Win­nipegiana and three Maddin shorts. The new cover was de­signed by for­mer Win­nipeg artist Mar­cel Dzama. My Win­nipeg was crit­i­cally ac­claimed when it was first re­leased in 2007. Film critic Roger Ebert placed it 10th on his list of best films of the decade.
