The Forbidden Room, Guy Maddin‘s new feature, is already being heralded by critics as one of the director’s finest works—and that’s saying quite a lot. Since the 1980s, Maddin has worked tirelessly in bringing his avant-garde melodramas to life, though rarely given due credit for his fascinating films. Running around an hour, Waiting For Twilight, made during the filming of Twilight Of The Ice Nymphs (1997)—and preceding much of the director’s more mainstream successes—highlights the methods, family life and career of this great director through clips and talking-head interviews with friends and critics.
