Times critic Sheila Benson has every right to say that the movie "The Outside Chance of Maximilian Glick" may not live up to whatever standards she sets, but she is wrong in saying that it has vanished from sight since winning the Best Canadian Film Award over "Dead Ringers" at the 1988 Toronto Film Festival.
"Max Glick" went on to win the most popular film award at the Vancouver Film Festival and the Innovation in Feature Filmmaking Award at the Montreal Film Festival and to considerable audience response at the Jerusalem Film Festival. It received five nominations in the Genie Awards (Canada's Oscar), including best film, best actor (Saul Rubinek), best screenplay (Phil Savath, based upon Morley Torgo's novel) and best supporting actress (Sarah Douglas Rubes). It has been picked up for U.S. distribution by South Gate Entertainment, which will release the film in exclusive engagements soon.
