canadian pov
18 January 2004 | by (Icarus Flats) – See all my reviews

Good tv movie i remember seeing about 10 years ago along with "Net Worth." Good to see that it was done by arguably the best canadian director around

today, Atom Egoyan. Love the way the chapters work and how the fathers story intertwines into brian's (kinda like memento with the normal scenes and then lenny b&w on the phone in his room). also liked how the old classic NHL footage was mixed in (especially for the very last frames). dont know how accurate it was but ive been to ft. st. james and like most small canadian towns, it takes pride in its successful hockey players, brians being one of a few. i liked the parallel between young and old brian and how the almost seemed the same (young brian more mature in some scenes). i would rate this pretty good for a tv movie and a cbc movie. was glad to see that egoyan improved alot from this in his later works likely because he had more creative control. only complaint is the hockey scene which just didnt feel 60's-70's "old-time-hockey." thats probly cause egoyan being from middle east and that likely never played hockey and i think shouldve found some way to do these scenes better by cloning the old stock nhl footage. i found it good to see (if u follow the nhl now) how the nhl expansion effected hockey and its players. guys like spencer were shipped round "journeymen" and really found themselves in poor cities that couldnt (and still cant support) their teams. finally i just gotta add how much i love brian's story of meeting bobby orr.
