It's something exceptional when you create something amazing from a single thought in your head but it was even more of an experience as the viewer that he was able to verbalize his personal experience and point out specific connections on his journey. Gregory also had some really great thoughts on the creative process and creativity in general.

Conveys the mood of the photographs, while allowing you to appreciate the work that everyone puts in the creating them. An enjoyable and enlightening little doc.

Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters-2012

The movie is a study of one man ever increasing obsession to create perfect representation of his thoughts. Far any concept of photography, Crewdson obsession with perfection drives him to fabricate backdrops on a grand scale and control every detail in them.

The movie follows Crewdson through his process of envisioning concepts and following through with an emotion or thought evoking disturbing, surreal images. Teams of lighting crews spend days setting up enormous lighting rigs, cutting down street signs and manhandling the locals to insure the large scale production reach their goals. More like a movie production teams assistance gather 20 or 30 lamps so Greg can pick one for the shot. Sets are built to exacting specs and much work is spent artificially aging them.

There are some brief interviews of the arc of his ?Beneath the Roses? through the present.
