An interesting look into Norman McLaren
6 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found this documentary to be a captivating look at the art of Norman McLaren.

While another comment notes that we don't learn where the artistic impulse or creativity comes from, that's too high an expectation from a film such as this, and not really a valid criticism.

Some things I did learn about Norman McLaren are: (1) I've seen a lot less of his work than I thought (2) He had a male "lifetime companion" (how times have changed...) (3) What "chain of mixes" means, including a demonstration (4) He also created geometric models, and made paintings

My only criticism of the film is that (as almost all film retrospectives do) it should have captioned all the clips so the viewer would know which film the clip is from. Shamefully, these weren't even included in the credits.
