How sad is this?

If you were to make a satire of English Canadian cinema it would be Guy Maddin's, The Saddest Music in the World. It's firing on all cylinders, as they say: quirky without purpose because hey - we're Canadian, a depressing story about depressed people because - hey, we're Canadian, and of course a walking talking caricature as the "American" because - hey, we're Canadian and we hate the idea that normal people like their movies more than our tedious wank-offs.

What a self-indulgent piece of crap.
