The film asserts much (with timelines and datelines and lots of footage) but fails to completely persuade. As a dissertation, it would have a terrible time defending itself.
A marvelous documentary by art gallery legend and sometime filmmaker Arne Glimcher.
Much of the documentary is a jumble of people extemporizing about this and that, but there is no connective overview.
The giveaway comes when one nabob of portraiture -- who is trying to tie Picasso and Braque to an early film about an accordion -- says the influence of the picture was absorbed by the painters "whether or not they saw this film." If you say so.
Picasso and Braque's primary merit is its archive-raiding evocation of the period discussed through vintage nitrate images...
It's a 60-minute documentary that feels like days of watching paint dry.
For those with a scholarly outlook towards film or art it's worth checking out, while others will probably not get much out of it.
There was once a time when the nascent medium of cinema struggled for legitimacy.
There's no proof anywhere of this film's key premise -- that cinema was the catalyst for these artists' pre-World War I forays into Cubism.
The subject matter is without a doubt intriguing, but a more poetic and emotionally charged approach to the material at hand, beyond that exquisite silent footage, would have enhanced the presentation.
An informative, well-edited and engaging documentary that needs a more thorough and provocative conclusion.
An intriguing, captivating glimpse into the creative process.
