Kung Fu Elliot(2014)
Surreal documentary examination on Elliot “White Lightning” Scott – a martial arts enthusiast and practicing filmmaker devoid of any appropriate skills, with a dream of becoming Canada’s first action hero with his low-budget karate movie Blood Fight. His self-delusion pushes the production forward regardless. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance 2014.
YOUR RATING & REVIEWWATCHLIST

Canada’s slim cultural exports probably deserve a martial arts action hero to thicken their ranks. As some of you may already have guessed, there’s a possibility the Elliot of the title isn’t that guy. As it sheds light on his world, this doco doesn’t take long to establish that Elliot’s homemade action films may not be the most delusional things he’s got going for him. You’ll be talking about this one to fellow moviegoers the second you get the chance.
