  1. YAAAAAAS!

    This dude is the real deal - legit wunderkind. "Tom at the Farm" was incredible - an intense, psychologically disturbing and insanely Hitchcockian film - old school in its use of film theory, new school in its approach to character shadings. Brilliant.

    I'm so crushingly in love with this guy, its insane. He's brilliant brilliant brilliant.

    cannot wait to see this one. #marryme

  4. Yes Rowan, they do speak a very odd 'French' in la belle province. I can well remember as child watching American TV shows dubbed into 'French' on Montreal TV stations and saying WTF to myself.

    Is this guy supposed to be avante garde or something? Because, sorry to rain on anyone's parade but he's off by, oh I don't know, 40 years or more.

  5. I'd like to see his take on Luka Magnotta (AKA The Canadian Cannibal); that I might watch.

  6. He's 25 ratbastard. And a brilliant and acclaimed filmmaker. You're an internet troll with a fake-dead dad and nothing of worth to offer, at any time ever. sorry to rain on your parade, but he's already done more in his life than you'll ever accomplish in yours. and, he's freaking gorgeous. how's your crappy life going? still pretending your dad was killed by "blacks"? how nice!

  10. Great movie! Saw it at the Cannes Film Festival this Spring. I was not sure at first but Dolan improves with every movie he directs and this one is superb!

  15. Tom at the Farm just played Outfest in LA last night and I loved it. It's sad that it still doesn't have an American distribution deal. Looking forward to Mommy now.

  16. Is this like the first time in history that anybody outside of Canada has ever paid any attention to a Canadian film (or a Canadian painting or sculpture or a Canadian novel or play or a Canadian musical composition)? (LOL)

    In any case, a film by a gay male entitled "Mommy" does not souund too promising to me......but maybe I will rent it if it makes it to Netflix just so that I can say that my mind remains eternally open....
