My Favourite Canadian FIlms

Here in Canada today is "National Canadian Film Day 150" (Canada, as a country, is 150 years old this year.)

The official website for the event is here: Canadian Film Day

This special day got me thinking about my favourite Canadian films. After some minutes of consideration my list will look like this (in no particular order):

Goin' Down the Road
Tales from the Gimli Hospital
Face Off
My Winnipeg
Jesus of Montreal
Starship Invasions
Montreal Main
Nobody Waved Goodbye
The Pyx
Mon oncle Antoine
The Death of a Lumberjack
Universe (short)
21-87 (short)
The Sweater (short animation)

I am missing so many, titles which escape me for the moment. In the days to come I'll be sure to post a "My Favourite Canadian Films II".

I'm embarrassed to say I've only seen three of those. Time to brush up.

I've not seen 'Black Robe', nor 'The Grey Fox'.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen is great. I've watched it a few times.

Some good additional picks!
