Made for the American Masters series, it comes across as an excellent piece of TV that seems somehow to have escaped its little box. Fascinating throughout, nonetheless.

This colourful documentary about one of America's most important design teams provides an extraordinary presentation of an impressive portfolio, but when it comes to the Eames' personal life some questions are left unanswered.

Filmmakers Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey deliver a nostalgic zing reminiscent of the TV drama Mad Men but tread lightly around Charles's mood swings and extramarital affairs.

There couldn't be a better time to examine the complex and absorbing history of this designing couple, and "Eames: The Architect and the Painter" couldn't be a better vehicle for that examination.

The most gratifying thing about "Eames" is that it shows, in marvelous detail, how their work was an extension of themselves and how their distinct personalities melded into a unique and protean force.

It's the archival footage that wows here, showing that before the brand took on yuppie cachet, the Eames team made exquisite objects for the masses.
