Guy Maddin, the premier indie auteur of Winnipeg, has spent the last two decades spinning cracked, hallucinatory tales of obsessed love and grand guignol, and has gained a sizable cult along the way. Now Zeitgest Films is releasing a four-disc collection of the director’s work, including the “remastered and repressed edition” of Careful, as well as Twilight of the Ice Nymphs, Archangel, Dracula, and Cowards Bend the Knee.

Special features: Five audio commentaries with Maddin and crew members; a 60-minute documentary on Maddin’s early career, narrated by Tom Waits; six shorts, including Odilon Redon (1995) and The Heart of the World (2000); three behind-the-scenes featurettes; imagined audition reels; radio interviews; production design collages and storyboards and; vintage photos from Maddin’s personal collection.
