The Unbelievers
Directed by
Gus Holwerda

A paroxysm of anti-religious fervour animates this slickly produced road show doc. Starring two of the world's leading celebrity unbelievers, biologist Richard Dawkins and physicist Lawrence Krauss, it follows the "dynamic duo of science" from continent to continent, talk show to conference hall, largely preaching to applauding choirs of fellow skeptics. If you accept their materialist, the-universe-was-somehow-created-out-of-nothing gospel, you'll be thoroughly entertained. Otherwise, not so much.

April 29, 6:30 p.m., Bloor; May 1, 3 p.m., Lightbox; May 4, 1:30 p.m., Bader.
