Gritty realism makes for brilliant fantasy
25 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I could have given this 10/10 if the version I saw wasn't so dark (some of the scenes were virtually all blackened out).

I recognize the older Canadian production values here, which reminds me of "Going Down The Road" and various other CBC or NFB productions. There's a kind of unglamorous and unadorned realism that makes it all so wonderfully poignant.

If I didn't know any better, I could have assumed an actual live show was being filmed with multiple cameras if I only saw a few minutes here or a few minutes there. Sneezy Waters is absolutely brilliant, both as a musician and as an actor. Loved the old guy doing the cagean dancing!
