1997 | DIR. ATOM EGOYAN | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
My exploration of Canadian cinema from the 90s brings me to The Sweet Hereafter, a profound film that stands out as one of the best of the decade. I first saw it theatrically in 1996 and have returned to it periodically over the past 21-years. Incredibly, it resonates more than ever, as though time stood still, and yet it resides amongst a horde of forgotten titles, ignored and – worse still – unknown.
