Wondrous Strange
4 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an intelligent and interesting look at the life of Glenn Gould. It features a lot of film footage of him along with comments by friends. There are several excerpts of Gould at the piano and we can feel the intensity of the performance. Gould definitely imparts himself onto the music. His life was certainly not that of the "standard" classical pianist and it certainly justifies the title of a biography of him called "Wondrous Strange". Some of this eclecticism comes out during the documentary or you can listen to his recordings and hear him humming in the background. Another feature that this film depicts is Gould's humorous and vividly photogenic personality.

This documentary follows his early and sensational career to the end when he died prematurely at the age of fifty. Glenn Gould is definitely a unique fixture in Canadian history and this film does a wonderful job illustrating that.
