TIFF's 10 Best Canadian Films

From the Toronto International Film Festival's most recent ranking, from 2015:

1. Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (2001)
2. Mon Oncle Antoine (1971)
3. The Sweet Hereafter (1997)
4. Jésus de Montréal (1989)
5. Léolo (1992)
6. Goin' Down the Road (1970)
7. Dead Ringers (1988)
8. C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005)
9. My Winnipeg (2007)
10. (tie) Stories We Tell (2012)
10. (tie) Les Ordres (1974)

Fine. Dandy.

However, I can't take the list seriously with its two serious omissions:

Starship Invasions (1977)
The Mystery of the Million Dollar Hockey Puck (1975)

I saw the top ranked flick and no stretch of the imagination is it the best Canadian film.

Sorry to say...looks like some SJW crap right there.

That's one of just four from the list I've not seen.

I would kinda recommend it. It is amateurish in every respect and overly long. But still had some unique charm.

Recommendation taken. Thanks!
