Question: if you (hypothetically) had to pick one Canadian film to show to a group of international students, what would that film be?

Question the second: assuming (hypothetically) you had a limited range of Canadian films* to choose from for this screening would you choose to show Bon Cop Bad Cop?

*Including (hypothetically) Top of the Food Chain (hilarious, wacky) Last Night (depressing), The Saddest Music in the World (hilarious, wacky and depressing), Hard Core Logo (rockin' and mockin'), Videodrome (wacky, creepy), 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould (arty), Waydowntown (wacky, depressing), Phil the Alien (wacky, not hilarious), Les Invasions Barbares (really freaking good), The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico** (yes, another mock-rockumentary), Gunless (hilarious in context, slightly wacky) and Ararat (genocide!)

**[personal profile] serrico: another source for a Strombo vid!
