Glass: A Portrait of Philip in 12 Parts premiered Friday at Toronto, marking Shine and No Reservations director Scott Hicks' fourth film -- and first documentary -- to debut at the festival. The film's complex depiction of the composer Philip Glass traces both the trajectory of his four-decade-long career and the family idyll strained below that arc, revealing a workaholic philosopher whose obsessions follow him everywhere from his Nova Scotia vacation home to the studios where he arranges film scores alongside the likes of Woody Allen and Errol Morris.
ReelerTV caught up with Hicks before the premiere to hear more background about the project, while Spout Blog's Karina Longworth dropped by once again to share a few of her recommended titles from the long days of viewing in Toronto. Visit Spout to discuss these films and many more notable selections from TIFF '07, and stay tuned for ReelerTV's return Monday with Control director Anton Corbijn.
