The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema
We talk to film critic, essayist, and documentarian Charlie Lyne about his look back on teen movie trends of the 90s in Beyond Clueless.
This week at The Bloor, The Case Against 8 takes a heartfelt and intricate look at a hot button issue, while The Internet's Own Boy stumbles in the exact opposite way.
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.
Since all three of this week's major releases all press screened at the same night and time during the week, here now are our reviews of the smart and funny remake of About Last Night and the astoundingly and laughably awful Winter's Tale. Also, an explanation as to why we don't have new reviews for Endless Love or Gloria, we double back on last week's never press screened Vampire Academy, we a look at Pussy Riot: A Punk Rock Prayer, which was the only new film at the Bloor this week, a special sneak at The Bloor tonight, family day offerings at The Bloor and the TIFF Bell Lightbox, and a look ahead to a Lightbox retrospective of some of Jean-Luc Godard's favourite Hollywood films starting on Thursday.
This week at The Bloor, urban sprawl goes under the microscope in The Human Scale, and Toronto's own Alan Zweig looks back on When Jews Were Funny.
This week at The Bloor, a look back at the hardest moments in Muhammad Ali's career in The Trials of Muhammad Ali and a pair of married designers responsible for a wide range of products get their due in Design is One: Lella & Massimo Vignelli
