Did You Know?


Sarah Polley: The only thing honestly I can compare it to is "The Adventures of Baron Manchuasen" when I was 8 and that was I think 3 times harder than this. But nothing's have come close until this, in terms of just sheer, demented ambition.

A Feast For The Senses - A MUST SEE!!!! Leave you breathless
17 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews


I was most fortune to see the CBC Broadcast of Wrath on Nov 14 and I could not leave my seat, it just blew me away and left me wanting more. Jon has gone above and beyond the call of duty on this one and I must say Bravo to Jon and all involved. It will replay this Saturday and I plan to catch it again.

It gives a whole new dimension on the film Beowulf and after seeing Wrath you just have to watch Beowulf again.

The blood and sweat that went into this film is out of this world!!!

Dreams can become a reality and this documentary proves it proof positive.

Be prepared to be spell bound.

I just cannot say enough great things about Wrath!!!!
