Critic Reviews for Gerhard Richter Painting
Richter gives off a heroic, creator-of-the-universe air as he strains to push the squeegee, exposing a new world in his wake.
Through the documentary lens, Richter's enigmatic paintings speak to us.
Richter offers multiple explanations of how he knows when a painting is done. They range from the mundane to the lofty.
A mesmerizing look behind the curtain at a magician at work, a man who creates his enchantments not with a deck of cards or puffs of smoke but rather paint, brushes, canvas and a giant squeegee.
It shows us the world's most famous living painter, who turned 80 in February, at work with greater intimacy than any other film portrait of a contemporary artist provides.
Audience Reviews for Gerhard Richter Painting
Gerhard Richter Painting gets low marks due to the lazy filmmaking (with the boom coming into shots) and is overall not very good as a documentary. It gets interesting in a few spots but overall feels flat. See Jiro Dreams of Sushi as a positive example of a documentary about a man and his dedication to his work. Note that this review reflects on the film and not its subject.
