Divorced from his wife (and reality), deluded, eccentric Andrew applies a magical philosophy to his romantic life to become a successful lady's man, rise from his depression and achieve godhood. With the superhuman persistence of a door-to-door salesman, he tangles with obstacles thrown up by a resentful friend, his lingering feelings for his ex-wife and the refusal of reality to co-operate with his plan. A painfully awkward comedy, Male Fantasy has been called "enormously funny" by Variety and "original and compulsively watchable" by Eye Magazine.
Blaine Thurier's first film, Low Self-Esteem Girl (2000), was based on his serialized comic strip and won Best Narrative Feature at the ultra-hip South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Male Fantasy is his second film. He plays keyboards in the wildly popular band, The New Pornographers, for whom he has directed two acclaimed music videos. He lives in Vancouver with his wife and two cats, and speaks fluent Japanese.
