Philosophically and emotively engaging
10 September 2017 | by trevorwowkSee all my reviews

Attended this movie as part of the Honens Day at Studio Bell in Calgary. I did not know Glenn Gould and his part in music history prior to this. I was riveted from the brilliant imagery that started the setting to the final credits. This is easily the most engaging life documentary I have ever had the privilege to view. Well produced and wonderfully presented. I cried, I laughed, and I groaned.

Left the theatre room feeling I had missed an amazing chapter of history that I should have been aware of.
