Summary
  • This third feature from Guy Maddin takes place in a 19th century mountain village where the wary residents must tread carefully and speak softly lest they cause an avalanche. Resembles a vintage melodrama from another planet
  • "Hilariously bizarre...Like some lost masterpiece from a time-warped alternative dimension."--Washington Post
  • "Careful is a knife in the gut to cinema, but at the same time finds magic in its self-destruction, a kind of giggly transcendence."--LA Weekly
  • "For all its lunacy, 'Careful' is ruled by the steeliest logic, and undercut by some kind of haunting emotion."--Chicago Sun-Times
  • "***1/2...for film lovers...thought provoking...Highly recommended."--Video Librarian
