MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Robert Bell

"My name is Tracey Berkowitz; 15; just a normal girl who hates herself." Such is her identity; a young woman defined by the perceptions of those around her and how they treat her; like junk; something to discard. Tracey is another lost soul in the landscape of Canadian film, where everyone seems to be a victim of isolation, abandonment, incest, hate crimes, and drug addiction; or is involved with some sort of sexual deviance. The Canuck movie circuit is an interesting one, where the true anomaly is normalcy and a happy ending. Perhaps this stems from Canadian identity itself, which is inundated with external influence, but separated, and aware of as much. There are no delusions of grandeur or self importance, as the landscape itself isn't defined by global power, but more so by the lack of interest in such whimsical fancies and heroics. The cultural identity is one of self deprecating humour and humble aspirations, as the unconscious feels knowledge of limitation and distance. Full movie review »
