Watkins' most experimental work is also his most accessible, painting a complex but compelling portrait of a man ill at ease with himself and his times.

Takes a fairly encyclopedic approach to present an unparalleled probe into the mind of an art icon.

Edvard Munch, in Watkin's subjective documentary setting, is one of the penultimate cultural crusaders, a relic of a dying era in which individualism could, apparently, still conceivably be intuitive and not reactionary.

There have been countless film biographies of famous artists, but only a few can be considered major works in their own right. Place Edvard Munch at the top of the list.
