The lack of intimate residue left behind creates cinematic problems that are exacerbated by the movie's general incompetence.

"I think their marriage was a mystery to everyone," an Eames worker notes-an observation true of every couple that you'll wish the filmmakers had explored more deeply.

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.

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.

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.

A fascinating biopic as offbeat, engaging and readily-accessible as its endlessly-inventive subjects.

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.

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.
