What we think

To call it a parody would be diminutive to the breadth of Rankin’s ambition: there is nothing straightforward about this biopic, which presents the 10th Canadian Prime Minister’s life as though it were an inverse Hamilton.

What others think

The Twentieth Century is a weird melange of expressionist theatrics, monochrome and bleached-out colourisations (although it is not faux-silent in the Maddin style, and no scratches on the print), sometimes resembling a stage-play.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
The Twentieth Century will not be to everyone’s taste but for fans it is destined to become a cult classic.
