  • Gould is as much of a mystery at the end as at the beginning. You get the feeling that's the way he'd have wanted it. show more

  • A fine overview, with enough new material to please Gould buffs. But the film fails to demonstrate that conventional biography is the best path to its subject's inner life. show more

  • Post-Dispatch classical music critic Sarah Bryan Miller told me that Gould's music is as divisive today as it was 50 years ago, when the pianist publicly clashed with conductor Leonard Bernstein over the tempo of a performance. show more
