Weirdos is a journey...of mind, body and spirit. The spirit being Andy Warhol - no less!
Quirky, indeed it is...but, not too quirky.
Composed...beautifully so, in visual and in pace.
At the Q&A, Mr McDonald exuded warmth...explaining that budget restrictions dictated the film to be shot in black & white...praise be to 'budget restrictions' [wow, that's a first!] because...Weirdos looks [beautifully] and feels [nostalgically] like the 70s.
The understated, perfectly structured final scene merited an audible 'Aaaaw' from the audience - deservedly so.
It really is a lovely, lovely, positve film...about how to recall a beautiful memory.
Yes, indeed, we are all weirdos.
Canadian master Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, The Tracey Fragments) teams with veteran playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor for this offbeat coming-of-age comedy-drama, about two Nova Scotian teens who hit the road in July 1976 accompanied by the laconic ghost of (the still-living) Andy Warhol.
