Critic Reviews for Filmworker
"Filmworker" is a first-rate account of the ongoing creative process some call dysfunctional. Well, anyone would call it that, actually. But some would also call it worth it.
The documentary mildly implies that his obsessive serfdom drove Vitali a bit mad, but it's a masochistic gesture that many a film geek can understand.
"Filmworker's" greatest value lies in pulling the lens back to allow viewers to understand film as a deeply collaborative medium, one in which even the most venerated auteurs cannot accomplish their greatest feats alone.
Next time you watch a Kubruck movie, take note of the high-contrast black and white, or of how consistent the colors have remained over the decades. Thanks, Mr. Vitale!
Tony Zierra's fond and slightly unsettling film is, among other things, a reminder of the egolessness necessary for great egos to flourish.
