Terrible Movie is Terrible
4 May 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

At first I was a bit annoyed that IMDb is forcing me to give this movie a 1/10, because I thought it deserved a zero, but then I remembered that one of the thirteen vignettes was actually good, so let's round up and say that 1/10 is about right. That vignette was Mystic Morning, which was set at Kouchibouguac National Park. It was interesting, piqued emotions, integrated music into the landscape of the film, and on a whole was rather enjoyable. It was an art film, but it was an art film done properly. The other 12 vignettes, however, were pretty much universally bad. There was the odd moment where beautiful shots of Canadian wilderness were allowed their moment on screen, but the majority of the films were aesthetically unappealing. I want to stress this point because of how ludicrous it is. Anyone who has visited a national park in Canada will be quick to explain that their primary characteristic is their overwhelming beauty. The fact that these films were able to go to these places, and yet find a way to not make them beautiful is itself an impressive deed, however one that does not lend itself to quality film making. I saw this film at Hot Docs, but was misled, as this film is in no way a documentary. Rather it is a series of poorly constructed art films that does little to highlight the enormity or beauty of Canada's national parks. Additionally, the musical aspects of the project felt rather disjointed and incongruous with the surrounding landscape. A tremendous failure.
