Next of Kin/Family Viewing
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Atom Egoyan


Atom Egoyan's first pair of films offers viewers a chance to see two stunning efforts from one of the '90s best filmmakers. The double feature also allows us insight into some of Egoyan's main obsessions: sex, dysfunctional families, and video. Finally, the series serves up a tasty appetizer from Mr. Atom's early days as a bright new director, before he claimed the commanding auteur status he now enjoys today.

Press

"Next of Kin is an exceptional first film: strong writing, acting and camera work, made for only 20,000 Canadian dollars in 15 days....gregarious performances are larger than life and uninhibited..."

- Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com

"(Family Viewing) has a mesmerizing quality that makes the bizarre seem all the more plausible."

- Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
