Architecture nerds like me will love it but so will the casual admirers. The documentary shows how Frank Lloyd Wright is a one of a kind personality and a true genius. We come to understand his brilliance and great charisma but also see the side of him that was brash, judgmental, and incredibly arrogant. It is fascinating to hear about Wright‚(TM)s extravagant personal and family life. It does a pretty good job of touching on his work and its principles and his extraordinary career too, but what it does best is to offer an understanding of Wright as a person. It is filled with a number of interesting historians as well as first and secondhand accounts from family members, clients, associates, peers and enemies. It is well done and I enjoyed watching it.
I think this is really one of the better Ken Burns docs. Really captures the essence of the man and the times he lived in. Made me want to build something after watching it. That and get a steak in AZ.
A well-made documentary, as per usual for Ken Burns, and the subject is a brilliant as the filmmaker. Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture is beautifully photographed and analyzed, and his personal life is interesting to a point, but we're here to see the work, and it is astounding.
