Added to my films
Canada at the turn of the 20th century is looking for a new prime minister, and a young William Lyon Mackenzie King feels up to the task. Driven by Oedipal political aspirations, his path to leadership is littered with obstacles: an ongoing Boer war in Africa, a national separatist movement, an elusive love interest, as well as an internal struggle to repress his footwear fetish and onanist impulses. Mackenzie King's ambition will come out on top in the battles of good vs evil, love vs hate.

"A wildly imaginative take on Canadian history, Matthew Rankin's debut is a wonder of artisanal filmmaking, with production design that rivals German expressionist cinema. As entertaining as it is thought-provoking, the film offers a psycho-sexual fever-dream and an unapologetic, astute critique of politics and complacent nationalism, shot on 16 mm and Super 8." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
