This attentive and good-looking doc takes a chronological approach to the work and partnership of Charles Eames and his wife Ray, two of the most influential artist-designers of mid twentieth-century America.
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.
A basically adulatory and very lively look at the documentary's subjects.
As fascinating - and at times oblique - as the famous couple themselves.
Much like the creations of its subjects, "Eames" is itself a dazzling, sensory adventure.
There couldn't be a better time to examine the complex and absorbing history of this designing couple, and "Eames: The Architect and the Painter" couldn't be a better vehicle for that examination.
Captivating, well edited, colorful, with an exciting story to tell, this is a film that should be seen by anyone who has ever sat on an Eames creation (or one of its knock-offs) and that would be everyone.
A riveting story.
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.
James Franco narrates in his best museum headset voice.
It may not offer much depth on their achievements but it still is a perfect introduction to their lives.
This documentary about the famous designers celebrates a unique kind of American creativity that anticipates the digital age.
