film review

The Wandering Muse opens in theatres at the Bloor Hot Docs.

Murder of a Cat

Who killed Mouser? A quirky comedy from first-timer Gillian Greene – the wife of Sam Rami – stars Fran Kranz, Blythe Danner, Greg Kinnear and the Whiplash-hot J.K. Simmons. A new entry into the under-represented kitty-caper genre. (PG, Carleton)

Awake: The Life of Yogananda

He was the go-to guru for President Calvin Coolidge and a photograph of him was enough to "zap" the Beatle George Harrison. A dreamy documentary explores the life and times of Paramahansa Yoganand, a superstar swami who brought yoga to the West in the 1920s. (G, Bloor Hot Docs)

Bank$tas

None other than Alan Thicke plays a horrible boss to a pair of recent post-graduates in a crude, office-cubicle comedy about corporate greed and ruthless career climbing. For fans of student-loan humour, interest is due. (R, Whitby Landmark)

The Wandering Muse

A vibrant-looking documentary about the boundary-crossing music of the Jews amounts to the world accordion to Tamás Wormser, the director whose film explores the soundtrack to the wandering race. (PG, Bloor Hot Docs)
