BRAD OSWALD Ñ TV

An interesting Development

It's the long-awaited return of a beloved TV series. The only tricky part is that it isn't actually on TV. Seven years after its last episode aired on Fox, the cult-favourite comedy Arrested Development (and that's a fair description, since in spite of all the praise and accolades it drew, the one thing it was never able to attract was a big audience) returns this week (May 26) with 15 all-new episodes that will be available only on Netflix. The entire cast -- led by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Jeffrey Tambor -- is back, and if an online trailer is any indication, the Bluth clan will be as happily, dizzily dysfunctional as ever.

Doc on Doc

Everyone knows the enduring pop song Save the Last Dance for Me, but the song's poignant back story is one of the revelations of the documentary AKA Doc Pomus, screening as part of the Winnipeg Jewish International Film Festival on Tuesday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m. at the Rady Centre. It's a portrait of Jerome Felder, one of the more influential songwriters of the '50s and '60s (Turn Me Loose, Suspicion, Little Sister, Lonely Avenue), and was co-directed by former Winnipegger William Hechter.

Don't tell them about Mike Duffy and Nigel Wright

Wasn't it just yesterday that the U.S. media were trumpeting Canada for being "cool"? Well, no longer, thanks to the Keystone pipeline brouhaha. Liberal American organs are now lining up to bash us as unrepentant polluters and global-warming deniers. Environmentalist Elizabeth Kolbert even takes a swing at Stephen Harper in the May 27 New Yorker. She writes that our prime minister's speech to the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations contained "a touch of menace."

Moving on

Bashir Lazhar, the Theatre Projects Manitoba production that ranks as one of the highlights of this year's Winnipeg stage season, gets its American premi®re in Massachusetts on Sunday. It should be interesting to see whether audiences south of the border are as moved by Evelyn de la Cheneli®re's powerful drama about a French-Algerian political refugee who is hurriedly hired to teach traumatized elementary school students in Montreal.

Swim with the fishes

Cinematheque helps Open City Cinema celebrate its first anniversary of presenting experimental, collaborative and underground films with a screening of Leviathan, a documentary about the commercial fishing industry. Filmmakers Lucien Castaing-Taylor and V©r©na Paravel, in collaboration with Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Lab, strapped HD cameras to fishers and assembled the resulting footage into a day in the life of the catch of the day. Leviathan screens Thursday, May 23 at 7 p.m.
