Movie Info

Produced by Martin Scorsese and Robert Greenhut and directed by Arne Glimcher, PICASSO AND BRAQUE GO TO THE MOVIES is a cinematic tour through the effects of the technological revolution, specifically the invention of aviation, the creation of cinema and their interdependent influence on artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. With narration by Scorsese, and interviews with art scholars and artists including Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl, the film looks at the collision between film and art at the turn of the 20th Century and helps us to realize cinema's continuing influence on the art of our time. --© Arthouse

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.
