We wonder how many moviegoers will want to sit for well more than an hour and watch a largely repetitious performance that amounts to a sheer artistic stunt.
The gold standard of nonfiction films about the creative process.
This marvelous film, made in 1956 by Henri-Georges Clouzot ... simply sits back in awe as the grand old man, shirtless and confident, does what he does best.
The work's potential impact is diminished by the gimmicky setup and Picasso's flip approach.
Through the miracle of time-lapse photography, we see the master knocking out a dozen major works over what purports to be the course of a single day.
Those who stay engaged with this piece will find it hugely rewarding, a sort of high art precursor to Jonathan Demme's Stop Making Sense.
works remarkably well for a select audience
Probably best regarded as a fascinating failure, but a failure all the same.
An invaluable document, even if the camera seems to ultimately corset rather than unleash the aging Minotaur
This is a remarkable and unique work.
Watching Picasso lay down his brushstrokes does not make for exciting drama.
A mesmerizing document of the artistic process, made possible by filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot's friendship with painter Pablo Picasso.
Fascinating doc that actually shows Picasso working on transparent canvasses. A nice insight into the creative process.
Documentary showing Picasso doing his drawings with a felt-tip pen (or someting like it), encouraged by Claude Renoir (Renoirs grandson no less). A little bit like watching Rolf Harris at work ("Can you guess what it is yet?") but better... after all, it's Picasso. PICASSO!! Bloody fantastic. I was mesmerized.
