I've taken a couple of film history classes in college and not once did they mention about Canadian cinema. I'm just curious any if there well known films or independent films that are worth seeing. I've saw clips of "Bon Cop, Bad Cop" and I really want to see it, so that's up in my list.
As for animation, I mostly seen a lot of good animated shorts from the animation screenings at my school (I used to be in Animation/Illustration major) and the short lived series on Cartoon Network entitled, "O Canada" which showed a collection of animated shorts from Canada. I wished they brought it back though. *sigh*
My favorites are "The Cat Came Back" and "Bob's Birthday" (warning: adult humor/minor nudity). Recently, "The Spine" is also a classic. There are some behind-the-scenes videos up on YouTube. I almost forgot about "Get a Job", another good one: the style reminds me of those old Looney Tunes/Tex Avery shorts.
Any favorites anyone? :)
Minor trivia: Plus, there's also Richard Williams, an Canadian animator, which he's well known for "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and written the book, "The Animator's Survival Kit". Just wanted to share that. : )
