Gush: ‘The F Word’ Directed by Michael Dowse


fword6  I’m of the lucky bunch that have already seen this delightful rom-com-dram. This film has been tucked so tight under wraps that even after the films been both screened and filmed in Toronto, I still know so little. There isn’t even a trailer!!!

New Pornographers’ AC Newman selected the fine tunes for this delightful film, which from my memory alone, featured many tunes from the ever talented Patrick Watson. Watson’s magical sounding tunes fit the film so eloquently, I really can’t dish about the fit enough.

I first got into Watson after figuring out that he was the guest voice of the Cinematic Orchestra tune “To Build A Home.” A tune you may have recognized in countless films… It’s sort of a coreshaker, with it’s blend of Watson’s peculiar vocals, piano, and orchestra. Here’s a very classy version of it:

Here’s my favourite Watson song, which was featured in the F Word:
