There are few filmmakers who arrived with quite the same frenzy as Xavier Dolan did when he unveiled his directorial debut, "I Killed My Mother" in 2009. Landing at Cannes for a splashy premiere, where it took the Prix Regards C.I.C.A.E. Award, and putting the director on the map, it established the bold style that Dolan would develop across two more features, "Heartbeats" and "Laurence Anyways." With Dolan slated to unveil his latest effort, the thriller "Tom At The Farm" — which promises to be taking a different direction than his previous works — now is as good a time as any to revisit where it all begun.

While Canadian director Xavier Dolan caused some cinephiles to have an immediate opinion on his work, despite the fact he's had only one film released in the United States -- 2010's "Heartbeats" -- with his directorial debut finally getting a proper release stateside, dicussions on the merit of the young filmmaker will only continue.
