Atom Egoyan's 1994 slice of time-hopping weirdery (like David Cronenberg mixed with Showgirls) focuses on a Toronto strip club, a new-in-town gay pet-shop owner, Elias Koteas's love-sick club DJ and Bruce Greenwood's unsettling tax inspector.

It's the sort of film where the characters either whisper, talk very slowly or very forcefully.

However, it's finale is shocking, surprising and desperately sad. Mia Kirshner stars.
