"Final Portrait" is barely 90 minutes long, which is about right, and several of those minutes are wordless - patient and observant of the artist's surroundings, inquisitive regarding what Giacometti is trying to will into being.
This movie is a meticulous dossier of the artistic process by one man who created it and another man who lived through it. Not your usual bill of fare at the movies, but well worth the patience to make it pay off.
Tucci takes our collective urge to excuse bad behavior in the name of art, a topic we desperately need to consider right now, but he doesn't really put it under a microscope to see why that happens or how that relationship works.
