Movie Medicine Facts
Was Guy Maddin’s feature film debut after the short The Dead Father.
Was famously rejected by the Toronto International Film Festival when a divided jury mistook its anachronistic style as unintentionally ill-crafted.
Director Maddin appears in a cameo as a surgeon who operates while patients are told to observe a badly-acted puppet show as a sort of anesthesia.
