Brand Upon the Brain!

Oedipal-tainted repression spirals up and down the confines of a lighthouse-turned-orphanage in Guy Maddin's latest visual confession. The silent era is revisited with string orchestra accompaniment tensing the muscles, exclamation marks fastening themselves onto intertitled commentary and erotically sublime gazing played out by a cast worthy of memory-imprint…yet, the story of one woman's thirst for nectar and a mad scientist's attempt to extract the age-reversing substance from the resident orphans' insides, is uniquely loyal to those murky nightmares conjured solely in the minefield of a child's mind. Rapid, intimate and dramatic; like a punch in the face!!!
