"Sol LeWitt" will help you understand the art it depicts and allow you to appreciate those aspects of it that surpass understanding.
Teerink paints a portrait of an intensely modest man who relished the idea of other artists carrying out his ideas, and, in the process, extending a given idea further than he himself had imagined.
An effective cinematic way to approach art; not as a Ken Burns panning motion across a single image, but as a series of static and dolly shots to give the viewer time to take in the work, and also to move around it.
It's an informative film, rich in ideas because LeWitt's ideas are rich, but it didn't make me curious either to see more of his work or know more about this oddly nebulous figure.
Though not dissimilar to other documentaries about artists, Sol LeWitt somehow feels much fresher and more original than those other productions and will hopefully catch on beyond fine-art enthusiasts.
What first feels like a neurotic avoidance of Sol LeWitt the man instead becomes a kind of mirage of his life, as though he managed to evaporate into his body of work.
Teerink's reserved, spare form mirrors LeWitt's work, which gives it tremendous impact.
