Hunting Elephants

No pachyderms or Patrick Stewarts were harmed in the making of Hunting Elephants, an Israeli heist comedy in which the Star Trek actor looks to engage us as a wise-cracking, safe-cracking thespian who leads a ragtag band of scheming seniors and one kid. (Carlton and Rainbow Elgin Mills, 14A)

Live from New York!

Bao Nguyen's contextual documentary aims to chronicle what Candice Bergen once described as a "variety show on acid." A pop-culture appointment-TV touchstone that began as Lorne Michaels's experiment in 1975, Saturday Night Live is shown as a living time capsule, with its sketches, bits and monologues a satirical comment on four decades of American life. (Carlton, PG)

Some Kind of Love

From the Canadian-born filmmaker Thomas Burstyn comes a mediation on family and things "more reliable than love." The documentary finds Burstyn's odd-couple aunt and uncle – artist Yolanda Sonnabend and her scientist brother Dr. Joseph Sonnabend – living together in England. What enfolds is a tender sort of reality television show, except it is actually real. (Carlton, PG; Q&A with director, June 14, 6:45 p.m.)

Open Roof Festival

The weekly al fresco event of indie films and live music kicks off June 17 with Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, the authorized documentary on the late Nirvana front man. (99 Sudbury Street, Wednesday nights to Aug. 19)
