This Week at The Bloor: 3/4/14

Thanks to some mid-week openings, the first of our two columns this week about what's playing at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema looks at the love letter to street photography Everybody Street, the Doc Soup selection for March La Maison De La Radio (a misfire looking into the inner workings of public broadcaster Radio France), and a look at a one night only screening of the exceptional music documentary Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton: This is Stones Throw Records.

Unsung Anniversaries #4: The Chase

This week's Unsung Anniversaries takes a look at the Charlie Sheen and Kristy Swanson 1994 action comedy The Chase, a film that is actually better than our Film editor remembered it being.

News Shelf: 3/1/14

To wrap up the week, we talk about some places in Toronto where you can get together to watch the Oscars tomorrow, we look ahead to next week's Canadian Screen Awards, we look at two TIFF Bell Lightbox series about books and food on film, and talk a little bit about how TIFF's Paul Verhoeven retrospective is just starting to get really good.
