I just found out!
Bing & Bela (2010)
Bing Crosby and Bela Lugosi.
Red lips. White wolf.
She is film critic Kim Morgan, who married Maddin after filming.
Lilith & Ly (2010)
A one-minute vampire short.
Udo Kier aims to steal a vampire woman’s necklace.
Is it supposed to be silent or is my browser messed up?
These last two were part of a shorts series called Hauntings.
It’s a Wonderful Life (2001)
Music video for Sparklehorse.
Silent actors on rotating sets.
Shot in peep-hole-vision!
Footage from Berlin, Ontario in 1916.
Remixed to doom-music.
Sighs & Bosoms (2014?)
Literally that, in a single sepia-toned shot, with strings.
One Minute Louis Negin (2014?)
Single shot of Negin close-up
Perhaps from the rushes of something Keyhole-related?
Spanky, to the Pier and Back (2008)
Spanky is a small dog.
He walks to the pier and back, the camera frantically recording the experience.
Lullaby (or Funerailles) (2013?)
Takes exciting or upsetting moments from films and tracks back and forth over them obsessively, almost Martin Arnold-style. Intense and wonderful. Includes Santo, Tales of Hoffmann, a zeppelin disaster, Dracula, gladiator battles, more.
Sissy Boy Slap Party!!! (2004)
Louis Negin goes off to the store to buy condoms and the sleepy heap of sissy boys he leaves behind immediately commence with some major slapping, while drummers drum and women stand aside unimpressed.
Also on there:
– a trailer for Archangel with the most edits per second of any Maddin work (yes!)
– a bog in Victoria shot on lo-fi color camera
– a bunch of silent 8mm reels I didn’t watch
