Mia Kirshner dances to Leonard Cohen in Exotica

This is from one of my favorite Atom Egoyan films, Exotica (1994) unfortunately it cuts off before it’s over.

Before this film was released, a friend of mine was at a dinner with Atom Egoyan who was complaining that no one came to see his films and my friend suggested that he set something up in a parking lot to screen his films. Atom was speechless with this remark. Soon after Exotica was released to great success. If you have not seen it yet, rent it.

And another film from a director that I love:

(1997) In the Company of Men Trailer – Directed by Neil LaBute
