Cowards Bend the Knee

The Winnipeg wonder's wacky wordless melodrama was exhibited as a peepshow installation in Rotterdam. Here is a splendidly sordid story of wily, wicked women luring innocent young ice hockey players into dens of unspeakable iniquity and dirty deeds involving hand transplants and other stuff of that ilk. Like a deranged silent serial shot through with Cold War politics and Shanghai sexuality, it's hilarious, haunting and exhilaratingly inventive.
