Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The film festival ethos of 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould is well suited to Francois Girard's film. Not only does the director do a good job of making the segments different enough in style and tone to seem like the work of multiple collaborators, but each rises to a level of artistic quality worthy of entry into a competitive festival. Colm Feore is a marvelous anchor, although very little dialogue is required of him; logically, he does most of his speaking through the piano, with his other contributions largely attitudinal and atmospheric. True to Girard's master plan, the film doesn't offer a clean, chronological approach to its subject, and the snippets leave the viewer hungry for more exposition now and again. Just as a piece of music has thousands of possible interpretations, so does Feore's Glenn Gould, who remains at an intriguing distance, meant to be experienced more than explained. The film exists on a high intellectual plane and won a host of Canadian Genie Awards. Although not widely seen, the film nonetheless provided inspiration for a classic episode of TV's The Simpsons, entitled 22 Short Films About Springfield.
