Let me describe it by telling you how he said it came to be. He took some friends to his family's cottage, and one debaucherous night he set out to make an unscripted story. So far, so normal. But what if I tell you that the friends in question are transsexual, and that the night was filled with a drug-fueled orgy? That, too, might be minimally surprising, considering how sex has played into a lot of his work, and the tribute he was making. So here's one final aspect: It's in bright, candy-filled color, a mixture of moving video and ultra-crisp, high-res stills -- glam bursting from the screen without any of Maddin's usual grainy, black and white haze. There is, however, Maddin's quick-cut style and the usual intermingling of shocking imagery, humor, and classic tendencies. All the bits together -- not your usual Maddin.
