Films about art and art-making.

Recommended Posts

If we're going to be going into documentaries then there are a couple of good ones from the BBC.  How Art Made the World, and Power of Art.   More of a miniseries than a one off documentary, but still.

An Art That Nature Makes: The Work of Rosamund Purcell



Yet despite the labored quality of the presentation, the film never strays far from Purcell’s work, and it is generous in sharing that with us. The last thirty minutes is the most successful as we even get a glimpse of the artist in process, along with an explanation of her evolving techniques. If I had the film on DVD, I would be seriously tempted to play it through once with no sound, just savoring the images, and then go back and listen to the commentary.
