Dolan's films are fascinating because most of the scenes in his films are textured. Simply paying attention to the dialogues or the acting is not enough. Dolan creates a tapestry in the screen. One example: pay attention to the furniture and walls. But his real gift is his knack for scene execution. "J'ai tué ma mère" follows a simple plot but he executed his scenes brilliantly, bringing out little details about mother and son. In "Tom à la ferme," he refused to reveal important details about the story, and viewers are left to fill in the missing links; for example, the changes in the position of the beds, and the blocking of characters in a scene.
Dolan's latest film, "Mommy" was chosen as Canada's official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Category at the coming 87th Oscars in 2015.
