1425 - The Trotsky
Caught this on the flight from Toronto to Edmonton. Loved it. This is a smart, fun, well crafted film and if it doesn't become a cult classic I'll be amazed. Baruchel, as always, is phenomenal, and the supporting cast is as well. Ben Mulroney even gets a pretty great dig at himself in. This is a film that I think people of all ages could love, but more importantly I think it's a great film to speak to teens. I know it got a pretty healthy release and I'm glad for it. Hoping to meet Jacob one day, I still need to see his first film, but I'm a big fan. Do yourself a favour and check this out as soon as possible.
