Canadian FIlms I Want to See


  1. streamofconsciousness
  2. Laura

I am studying Canadian film (independently) at the moment and have compiled a list of films I?d like to see. Bear with me if I make notes in the review section, just useful to me, but plan on writing reviews as well.
I found IMDB.com useful as well as my textbook ?A History of Narrative Film? by David A. Cook and I especially recommend the book ?Weird Sex and Snowshoes and other Canadian film phenomena? by Katherine Monk an informative and hilarious read.
I used these references to help define for me what is a Canadian film, though I really consider anything directed by a Canadian part of this list. Bonus if a film is shot in Canada, stars Canadian actors, writers, cinematographers, etc.
Let me know if you have any recommendations. Though also check out my list Canadian Films I HAVE seen which I am still working on.

    OMG! Cool list! Assuming The Changeling was shot in B.C.? I know some of the city scenes were shot in Seattle. It's one of only 4 films I've seen on this list. :( (Naked Lunch is pretty awesome but freaky - in the same vein as Eraserhead)

    Yep, The Changeling it was shot in Seattle and other parts of Washington, throughout BC, New York, NY and Toronto. Tons of locations!
    I am happy with the way the list turned out, I jotted movies down I read about or heard about that sounded good and there's a lot of cool Canadian movies on there. A lot more horror and psychological thrillers than I was expecting!
