Keyhole (2011)

Director: Guy Maddin
Country: Canada

Plot: Gangster and deadbeat dad, Ulysses Pick, embarks on an unusual journey through his home.
Quick comment: A surrealistic journey through the lost memories of a gangster (turned into a ghost), who is desperately looking for his wife in their forsaken mansion. As usual, Maddin adopts an atmospheric dream-like ambiance, blurry and bizarre imagery in black-and-white and adds some supernatural content to it. No need to tell that I was constantly struggling to grasp what was going on. The searching is endless and the conclusions are few, but the movie sticks into your head for some time. A challenge!
