Critic Reviews for My Architect
The young Kahn is not a graceful filmmaker. Yet the subject matter is engrossing for anyone interested in architecture and also one of its greatest practitioners.
Isn't a bad place to begin if you're curious about architecture and don't know much about Louis Kahn.
By the end of My Architect, Kahn has learned that the central contradiction of his father's life can't be resolved -- and that realization becomes the filmmaker's solace and the film's triumph.
The finest achievement of My Architect is the way the son locates the light of his father's personality.
It is a stunning work that captures with elegance -- and touches of lyricism -- the challenge of finding the man through the artist.
Audience Reviews for My Architect
Deeply moving, the poignant and moving documentary I wanted about Louis Kahn, poet, philosopher, architect and inevitably, as a man. This one I will be looking into for strength as the years go by. Louis Kahn's spirit is alive with it!
Terribly dull at times. Frankly, this man shouldn't be sharing his architect.
I'm sorry, but this was just too long and extremely uninteresting. Yes, Louis Kahn was a great architect, but it doesn't mean he is warranted a complete psychological analysis post-mortem. I feel bad for his son, but it doesn't mean I want to spend two hours with him sorting out his daddy issues.
