Most of artwork is shown with a dizzying zooming-in/rotating technique which the filmmaker seems obsessed with. It gets old after a couple of times. Very gimmicky. I'd rather have a chance to look long and hard at the whole piece and then zoom in to see details.
The movie also contains stunningly obvious statements. Escher was influenced by architecture. Duh. Anyone who has seen just one or two of his most famous pieces knows that. And that was supposedly the source of his uniqueness. Like no other artist was ever influenced by architecture?
My friend and I watched it all the way through in spite of how bad it was, because after a while it became fun to laugh at it. Don't waste your time on this, unless you want to show it to a film class to give them an example of how *not* to make a documentary.
