Critic Reviews for The Painter Sam Francis
A well-meaning mishmash that wouldn't pass muster as an episode of American Masters.
It's a stirring snapshot of that strange space where the act of creating can be a religious experience.
The portrait of Francis doesn't articulate enough to explain the film's epic gestation period.
A sporadically fascinating, but often dull documentary that fails to be sufficiently illuminating, provocative and engaging.
Perkins' film doesn't form as fluidly from its parts but it is, for the most part, far less interested in gazing at its subject as a tortured genius or a hero of the art world
