good doc and companion piece to 'still life'
(***): Thumbs Up
An interesting documentary.
A film that truly graps what the creative process of an artist is. This is a film that is incredibly heartbreaking at times, exploring the very concept of what makes us human. Its a tad slow at times, but through Liu Xiao-dong we really get a glimpse into the process of a true artist. Zhag Ke Jia is really one of the most talent contemporary filmmakers out there.
Excellent documentary, following Liu during the painting of two multi-paned murals. Jia gives us little in the way of narration, and the editing is largely elliptical, leaving much of the narrative shrouded in mystery. Beautiful visuals, as usual, and he makes interesting use of direct parallels and contrasts throughout the film, not to mention inserting a few shots from his feature, Still Life.
More than just a companion piece to "Still Life," this short documentary goes well beyond its apparent subject--two paintings by Liu Xiaodong--to meditate on the humanistic responsibilities of artistic representation. Subtle and breathtaking.
Restrained, observational and subtle documentary of an artist painting two new pieces. Zhang Ke Jia's slight camera explores the living breathing life of the models within each painting and the internal struggles of an artists continual urge to be creative. When the quality and importance of art is so subjective and fluid, by what measure does an artist assess his/her creative worth?
