This is not to say that the film offers nothing of value. Dawned in masks the group break into the school, seek to free Aila’s dad, and pull off their hilarious revenge plot directed at Popper. However, before the crew gets the chance to put their plan into action, Joseph is released from jail. This is a good one. Barnaby has managed to fashion a story that is set years ago with a modern vibe that will appeal to mainstream audiences. By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 16 must attend residential school. That means being at the mercy of “Popper”, the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school.

This draws the attention of Popper, a sociopathic federal Native Agent who takes much pleasure in tormenting and beating Mi’kmaq people like Aila and her friends. Despite saving him, Joseph was set to be punished by the Priest- and Popper was tasked with carrying out the actual beating.
Aila and her friends are constantly under the watchful eye of Popper, a racist Indian Agent who exploits every given oppourtunity to violently beat and extort them.
To be fair, I’m almost willing to forgive Rhymes for Young Ghouls’ narrative shortcomings on the sheer strength of its performances and its virtuosic visuals.
Devery Jacobs, without exactly knocking it out the park and lacking the charisma to effectively carry the film, surely deserves the accolades she’s received for the angsty reticence she brings to her role. She is no longer a little girl. A very impressive debut feature Nobody can sell marijuana on the reserve unless Popper gets his cut of the profits.

When all is said and done, Rhymes For Young Ghouls is a really excellent film. His talents are clearly multifaceted. Dawned in masks the group break into the school, seek to free Aila’s dad, and pull off their hilarious revenge plot directed at Popper.

Aila Davery Jacobs lives on the Red Crow reserve in the constant shadow of the residential school system, represented by a tyrannical, corrupt, and paedophilic Indian Affairs agent named Popper an ethnically-ambiguous Mark Antony Krupa. I really feel that this film can be enjoyed by a diverse crowd of people, if given a chance.
Rhymes For Young Ghouls is Mi’kmaq filmmaker Jeff Barnaby’s freshman feature having two short films already to his credit – and he’s done a damn fine job with it. That much of a setup would have been simple enough to support the film’s central revenge plot against Popper and the residential school system.
To help make ends meet, she sells marijuana with her uncle to the local pot smokers on the reserve.
I may not be particularly sold on it, but, ideologically, I’m loath to wish failure upon it; if this is where First Nations cinema is going, I eagerly await to see where it finally ends up. Important Movies, which are significant but not necessarily good, and Great Movies, which are good but not necessarily significant. The wnglish film plays like a garbled, heavily-condensed version of much longer and presumably more fleshed-out screenplay.
Her father is then arrested for the murder, and a year old Aila is left to fend for herself. Englidh seizes all of Milch’s dope and money- the money they need to re-up and pay off their truancy taxes.
Popper and Joseph went ebglish Residential School together. Although it is impossible not to roll one’s eyes at Jeff Barnaby’s repeated comparisons of the film to the likes of Inglourious Basterds and A Clockwork Orange one of the characters even throws out the word “horrorshow” at one pointit is not a stretch to wonder if, with a tighter narrative and richer characterization, Barnaby and company could have come close.
The film provides commentary on a number of social issues that currently affect our Ylung communities: Their collective experience is summed up in a quote made by the film’s main character- Aila- who says, “This is what brings my people together Barnaby’s script rhymea around too many inadequately-drawn characters and off-screen backstory in its opening minutes for gghouls audience to reasonably follow the thick rez accents affected by the main characters only aggravates the issuemaking the remainder of the plot nigh on incomprehensible, even after a second viewing.
This culminates with Joseph being beaten and re-arrested- for taking subtitpes boat out on the water during a ban- and Aila being thrown into the Residential School system. This is an impressive debut feature film, and I look forward to seeing Mr.

There is a big difference between ambiguity and incoherence, and this film veers decisively into the latter territory.
Rather, the head of a relatively successful drug dealing operation. It would be nice to see it get distribution into some Canadian theatres. Also, as a citizen of the USA, it is a little odd to watch one regarding abuse and racism against Indians by engllsh British via “Queen’s Laws” in Canada instead of the USA, since most of the western world prefers to pretend only whites in the USA abused minorities. Custer fought and died to spare our country of such a MicMac problem.
Rhymes for Young Ghouls, while not a Great Ghousl, will hopefully come to be widely recognized as an Important Film and open the floodgates for more mainstream projects by aboriginal artists.

Martin, a thus-far undistinguished cinematographer, shot this film and infuses it with some truly unforgettable images; there is both tremendous beauty and unflinching horror in this film.

I won’t reveal how it all goes down, but I will say that the film has an explosive conclusion which had the audience cheering at the TIFF screening I attended. Much of the film plays like a dark visual poem, and the imagery and cinematography are very strong.
