Leolo

We just watched this (again) yesterday and I really love it. It’s everything I want in a piece of art: it’s funny, poetic, terrifying, moving, and real.

Found guilty of all the crimes of my family, I had decided to kill my Grandfather. Whom I liked.

:)

I wonder what kinds of movies Jean-Claude Lauzon would be making now if he’d lived longer? He made Un Zoo La Nuit and Leolo, and was then killed in a plane crash.

Anyone else a fan of this movie?

[Here’s what Ebert had to say Leolo]

Leolo is a great, great movie. Night Zoo I wasn’t anywhere near as fond of, but Leolo is up there with Videodrome, Exotica and Highway 61 as one of my favourite Canadian movies.
