In films as different and inventive as Tony Manero and No, Chilean writer-director Pablo Larraín has been singularly successful in framing Chilean subjects in ways that have resonated internationally. In the blackly funny The Club he turns his sights on the Catholic Church and “offers up a morosely comic and deeply sacrilegious portrait of four priests exiled to the outskirts of their faith, where they lead an existence that’s closer to the exploits of the Soprano family than to anything authorized by the Vatican.” — Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

Since Careful in 1992, NZIFF audiences have reeled in amazement as Canadian Guy Maddin constructed psychic delirium from a welter of narrative scraps from bygone films – that is, ‘films’ that he’s fabricated himself, with a fetishist’s attention to vanished technologies and archaic film styles. This time he’s working with co-director Evan Johnson to yield a magnum opus of melodramatic scenarios, dizzying in its nutty grandeur.

At age 13 they sent him to Christchurch, where a well-to-do uncle and aunt adopted him. (Ian Athfield was a boyhood friend.)
