Critic Reviews for Filmworker
Filmworker isn't simply about Kubrick, or Vitali. In a sense, it's the ultimate fan story: a tale of what it means to live vicariously through a genius.
The film honors the hard-working, often unacknowledged craftsmen in the film industry and stirs provocative questions about the fine line between legitimate devotion to an artist and dangerous hero worship.
It's a portrait of Kubrick's right-hand man, who devoted himself to the religion of all things Kubrick, but beyond that the film has a special value: It ushers you into the world of how Kubrick put his movies together.
An inability to crack the movie's central mystery -- why abandon your dreams to help facilitate someone else's? -- leaves the project feeling a bit like a missed opportunity.
