Brand Upon the Brain!

Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin again channels some of the most bizarre cinematic ideas ever realized with this imaginary account of his childhood. Told in the style of early silent melodrama (and originally screened with live music and sound effects), the film depicts the young Maddin's formative years as an odyssey of nightmarish traumas. Includes narration tracks by Isabella Rossellini, Crispin Glover, Maddin, and others. DVD extras include two new short films by Maddin - 'It's My Mother's Birthday Today' and 'Footsteps'.
