A friend who watched this with me said that it's the kind of film she'd like to see again when she's dying. That pretty much nails its meditative, melancholy tone...
No matter how vivid your home setup might be, it's best to see this in a theatre.
There are moments where you may want to stop the film to assure yourself you're seeing what you're seeing, so disordering to the senses are Goldsworthy's re-orderings of nature.
"Leaning Into the Wind" offers viewers a welcome chance to consider the work of an artist who defies the recent commodification cult to embrace the ephemeral and the nominally "worthless."
This is one of the most relaxing experiences I have had watching a movie in a long time.
Even if some things have changed, spending time with an artist who's concerned, as he's said in interviews, with "the permanence of temporary objects and the temporality of permanent objects," is always worth the journey.
Goldsworthy's art is driven by an awareness of instability and mortality, which makes it a profound celebration of the present, of life.
Leaning into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy>, treads much of the same ground [as the first], but the environment and mankind's relationship to it has changed a lot since 2001.
It's more naturalistic than its predecessor, feeling at times like a memoir or a reassessment by a man reaching the autumnal years of his career.
There is something almost pagan to the earth magic of Goldsworthy's work; through his eyes we reconnect with an elemental quality in the world around us that, somewhere along the line, we lost the ability to see.
This is a hypnotic and beguiling documentary portrait of the 62-year-old site-specific land artist Andy Goldsworthy... Sit back, relax and, in the most literal way possible, watch an artist at work.
The ephemeral work of Scottish-based landscape artist Andy Goldsworthy makes film an ideal medium for documenting it.
