Maddin, Guy -- BRAND UPON THE BRAIN!


Guy Maddin -- BRAND UPON THE BRAIN!

Guy Maddin's appearance at the 50th San Francisco International Film Festival marked the second consecutive year that he had brought his unique vision to that event. Last year, it was to receive the festival's Persistance of Vision Award. This year, it was to present his latest film, BRAND UPON THE BRAIN! in its live event incarnation, complete with orchestra, interlocutor (Joan Chen), foley artists on stage, and a castrato to sing the film's wedding song.

Maddin's films are the work of a true auteur. Who else makes films without spoken dialogue these days? When I spoke with him on May 5, 2007, he was pretentious, cogent, brilliant, and puckish, as his fertile mind leapt nimbly over a variety of topics, from Spike Lee's Blackberry (tm), to the truth that can be found in melodrama and no place else.
