Dustin Hoffman

This Week at The Bloor: 7/11/14

There's only one new film at The Bloor this week - the okay, but very niche look at tailoring Men of the Cloth - but there's still a ton of great events going on at the cinema over the next seven days.

Chef Review

After spending some time away from the indie film scene making some high profile Hollywood blockbusters (and some admitted box office duds, none of which were really his fault), actor and director Jon Favreau has come back with a gleefully reinvigorated mojo in the form of Chef, a winning, inspirational, and pitch perfect comedy that feels personal and universal at the same time.

Interview: John Mitchell

Back in 1987 the Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman comedy Ishtar became one of the most infamous box office disasters and critically reviled films of all time. But what if the movie itself was ahead of its time and not actually that bad? Filmmaker John Mitchell aims to answer that question with his documentary Waiting for Ishtar, which has recently started an IndieGoGo campaign to help with post-production. We chat with the filmmaker about the history of one of the most misunderstood moves of all time.

Quartet Review

Already somewhat underrated, Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut Quartet will appeal beyond the older crowd it's aimed at and giving plenty of laughs and great performances to people who couldn't care less about old people and the opera in the slightest.
