In 80 minutes, Sky Ladder teaches you through sight, sound and dialogue about a new artistic language, while making you an expert on one of its masters.
A documentary that is as rewarding as this artist's work.
A very stimulating introduction to this extraordinary talent.
A documentary that begs to be seen in a theater, "Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang" offers an inviting glimpse into the life of a truly international artist, one whose colorful fireworks displays literally paint the air.
Macdonald effectively draws lines between his subject's past and his present, attempting to make sense of what his harshest critics see as self-serving contradictions. In a way, it's all of a piece, embracing the best and worst of an ever-changing nation.
The film, in the end, is a celebration of a humble artist who easily could have been - and perhaps deserves to be - a megalomaniac.
For as tall as Cai imagines his latest effort will rise, the audience may actually feel as if they've been lifted even higher.
The artistry on display in Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang is unlike anything I've ever seen, and definitely not the kind of art you could catch in any art district throughout the world.
In the fascinating documentary Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang, director Kevin Macdonald helps audiences understand the political and social forces that helped develop one of China's major artists and his journey.
With Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang [McDonald's] experience comes to the fore, constructing a film that packs into a feature length running time an impactful and engaging look at this fine subject.
Yeoman wisely draws his camera back, framing the presentations as if they were paintings, only occasionally allowing us to peak up close as one might do when standing before the work of an Impressionist master or the like.
Look for the fiery display of pyrotechnics that conclude the Chinese art form.
