Canadian Filmology’s 11 Best All-Time Canadian Movies

It is not an exhaustive list, but we’re sure you’ll love these!

1. The Bitter Ash (1963)

Larry Kent directed this risque story of manipulation, drugs, and exploitation. Haunting but incredibly exciting!

2.A Married Couple (1969)

Directed by Allan King, this movie depicts the slow and excruciatingly painful disintegration of a marriage and the couple’s attempt to fix it.

3. Goin’ Down the Road (1970)

Donald Shebib directs the story of two young friends who leave Nova Scotia with the hopes of making it in the big city. An all-time classic with life lessons, what else can we say?

4. Shivers (1975)

In our opinion, David Cronenberg’s Shiver is his most exciting film. A tale of a sexual awakening parasitic infection that infects others by sexual contact. It is very engaging!

5. Starship Invasions (1977)

This movie is strangely compelling with an inappropriate horny undertone. It’s a sci-fi themed film about people of advanced civilization looking for a new place to conquer and inhabit.

6. The Rubber Gun (1977)

In this super exciting movie, the actors play themselves. It’s a depiction of life in Montreal substance culture, directed by Allen Moyle and starring Stephen Lack, an actor-artist.

7. Big Meat Eater (1982)

This movie is without question the best movie about zombies, “bloodthirsty Turks,” and aliens to ever come from Burquitlam, not to mention that it’s also a musical with UJ3RK5 on its soundtrack!

8. Crime Wave (1985)

John Paiz directs this movie about a young screenwriter unable to finish writing his scripts; he figures out the beginning and end, but not the middle.

9. The Decline of the American Empire (1986)

What could go wrong with some sexy dinner conversation, you ask? Absolutely nothing, as Denny Arcand, shows us in this brilliant movie.

10. Dead Ringers (1989)

This is a tale of jealousy and steamy romance of twin gynecologists obsessing over the same woman. It is both frightening and exciting and a tad misogynistic.

11. Double Happiness (1994)

This movie was the first time Chinese-Canadian life was depicted on the big screen. A responsible daughter caught in the middle of her parent’s traditions and modern society. Sandra Oh shot into the spotlight, and Mina Shum didn’t do badly either.
