Unique bio-doc from one of the greatest documentarians.
6 January 2000 | by (Ellensburg, WA) – See all my reviews

Les Blank, best known for his Herzog doc, BURDEN OF DREAMS, which won a British Academy Award, has spent 40 some years making acute, incisive, documentaries about unique individuals, Louisiana culture, food, and music as his main themes. MAESTRO is an enormously entertaining film about an unconventional "cowboy" artist who sets himself against Andy Warhol and refuses to accept any money for his art. Les Blank creates a curious ethnography of The Maestro's way of life and ideologies. Visit Les' website to find out more about his films.
