Best Canadian Movies

moviesHumble Howard says "Bon Cop Bad Cop" is the best Canadian movie he's ever seen. He openly admits that he hasn't seem a lot of Canadian films, but who amongst us has? I can only think of a handful of Canadian movies that I've truly loved.

The first couple of great Canadian flicks that pop into my head are "The Barbarian Invasions" and "The Sweet Hereafter". Then there's "Exotica", "Jesus of Montreal" and "C.R.A.Z.Y." After five whole minutes of deliberation, here are my ten favourite Canadian films of all time.

  1. The Barbarian Invasions
  2. The Sweet Hereafter
  3. Hard Core Logo
  4. Exotica
  5. Saint Ralph
  6. Jesus of Montreal
  7. C.R.A.Z.Y.
  8. Meatballs
  9. The Triplets of Belleville
  10. Sunshine

I guess Canadian Bacon doesn't qualify...although I think it should.

Even if it qualified, it's not top ten material, IMHO.

What about the Rocket Richard Movie, or the 72 Summit Series movie? Have you seen either one of those? I haven't yet but I want to.

I haven't see the Rocket movie but I did see the '72 Summit Series movie.

I could have thrown a few David Cronenberg films on this list too, but I didn't feel like it.

What about the original...theatrical Terry Fox Story or Bob Clarks Porkys?
or Richard Attenboroughs "Grey Owl", and the Classic Eddie and the cruisers 2(Eddie Lives)....Marc Holmes from Platinum Blonde was brilliant in it.
Also Trailer Park Boys- The Movie
