Guest of Honour (2020)
Critic Consensus: David Thewlis' performance aside, Guest of Honour serves as a frustratingly limited return to form for writer-director Atom Egoyan.

Critic Reviews for Guest of Honour
Guest Of Honour, [Egoyan's] latest effort, is decidedly that sort of low-wattage Egoyan classic, serving up familiar preoccupations and structural curlicues-minus any inspiration.
The movie is consistently seductive, and it makes lovely use of a composition by Shannon Graham that is woven into Veronica's work as a music teacher. But... the characters' anguish feels more constructed than organic.
Guest of Honour is grippingly obtuse, at first, like early David Lynch. But eventually, sadly, Egoyan nullifies all narrative possibilities with a silly and cumbersome plotline about an accidental house-fire and a childhood grudge.
