Visually, one of the best lyrical documentaries I have ever seen..
18 December 2000 | by (Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

GLASS may be the perfect non-cinema verite documentary film ever made. It tells the story of hand-made vs. machine-made glass products through the brilliant use of visual language. Color, movement, music, sound effects and editing combine to illustrate the contrast between the two types of glass products: artistic and utilitarian. And the difference is clearly and entertainingly presented without a word of narration. This is a film that truly contains not one unneeded shot The jazz score accompanying the visuals can stand on its own as music, yet it is brilliantly married to the diverse and unique portraits of the individual glass blowers featured in the film - all of it in just eleven minutes!
